Adele Proves People Will Still Pay for Music - A Whittle Bit of Commentary 11/20/15

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors)

British superstar singer Adele is dropping her new album 25 today and according to many reports the album will not be on Spotify, Apple Music and other streaming services. I’m sure some fans will be upset, but I don’t blame her. If you are a star as big as she is, or Taylor Swift, you don’t have to allow your tunes to be on streaming services and make pennies on the dollar. Only way to hear her new album is you have to buy it on a CD or digital download. Adele proves that in this age of people wanting everything for free, including music, people are willing to pay for good content, because content is still king. I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary.
