And Tidal is not a top 3 streaming service.
You're correct about TIDAL. Pardon me. That service sucks anyway.
No one said people weren't streaming years ago.
You can research the vinyl statement. Vinyl is the ONLY growing form of physical music consumption of the past 5 years.
If that's the way they count music sales how's it unfair in this case? If anything artist aren't given the proper credit. It's the same people, Nielsen takin the #s.
Soundscan started in the early 90s before they just counted shipments.
