    Spotify is free. Pandora is free, and You Tube is free.

      Yeah, I'm sure Jay-Z and his half a billion dollar revenue is crying that I illegally downloaded a few of his songs.

      I'm sure Kanye is weeping tears of sorrow right now even though he's worth over $100,000,000.

      Beyonce is going TOTALLY BROKEN because I illegally downloaded some of her songs.

      And by the way, these are the artists who are promoting it. The same artists who make $20 a second are charging us $20 to listen to their music.

      Record companies don't cultivate talent because they don't care about talent, they care about if you will produce revenue for them.

        And that's right. @Gurujot. Spotify's top quality premium service is half the amount Jay-Z will be charging you. And unfortunately he and the rest of his colleagues will be pulling their music off Spotify because "artists deserved to get paid."
        Well, the problem is that people want to make money, so they just churn out terrible music.
        There are a lot of bands that I will literally buy every one of their albums, just because what they've continued to put out every time is all quality. Where as rappers try to drop a track a week just to hope some dumb **** pays a $1 for it. And sadly it works. Doesn't make the music good....just means these people are trying to make a buck.
        So the point MH made is correct to a degree, but....artists haven't figured it out. People will pay for entertainment....IF IT'S WORTH IT!!

          Don't sympathize with the record companies. They are the ones paying for airtime and let awful music continue to get traction just to make money. They cause most of the problems, man...

            I agree I will pay for music that's worth it.
            Their music unfortunately, is not.

              The benefit of this site is the hq streams that no other site offers, that is the exclusiveness that the success predicated on.

                I'm not sure who youre referring to, but I bet I agree lol.
                You mentioned Jay-Z, and I own most of his good music,....so I feel like I'm not missing out =P

                  Thats the biggest problem, so many people nowadays actually think that music is free because of torrents

                    Is that to say Spotify isn't high quality? Becaaaaause it literally sounds like every other 320kbps rip I own....I mean, it's not lossless flac or anything, but unless youre an intense audiophile with top of the line equipment, nobody can tell the difference.
                    So, I wouldn't really call that a benefit. And also, high quality crap is STILL crap...

                      Artists like Nicki Minaj, Kanye West, Jay-Z's NEW material, Madonna, Beyonce..even Rihanna.

                      I'm downloading all of their **** for FREE. They complain that we don't buy albums..how about you make album quality music, and then you can think about charging me $20.

                          You're gullible, because that's what they want you to believe. Again, it's all about the "exclusives" and what you can't find anywhere else...just to get money. They don't give a damn about the quality, they are just saying that to reel you into that ****. There is absolutely positively nothing wrong with other music platforms, it's just they don't gain as much revenue.

                            Someone sounds like they think theyre entitled to something. You gotta make a masterpiece or I'm gonna steal your ****, even though I was gonna steal it any ways.

                            • And by the way, it's 20 bucks to LISTEN to it...not buy it.
                              I can LISTEN to their music for free on You Tube.


                              "Oh but it's high quality!!!" Not today, Satan.

                                I don't buy albums, because there's only a couple of good songs. When was the last time you bought a CD? A really good CD?
