Beatles Decide To Hit Streaming Services; It Might Be A Setback For Major Artists!

After a recent surprising announcement made by the Beatles regarding activation of their world-renowned catalog on almost every famous streaming service, there has been one question that is being asked by almost everyone who falls in the fan list of Beatles, and that is, “why so late?”

From the midnight of 24th December, the most awaited musical group’s work will be live on many popular streaming channels that will bring a sigh of relief for many and a matter of excitement for others. Right away from Spotify to Apple Music, one will be able to listen to their famous numbers.

On the other hand this can be a matter of worry for many other musical maestros. According to Terry McBride, “They probably have lost 10s of millions of dollars by not doing it. I’m quite sure there are many people, maybe in the millions, who are Beatles fans.”

Undoubtedly, there might be quite a number when Beatles fan following is considered. With a big shift after modernization hit the music industry, there has been a major transformation when selling the number of CDs has been overtaken by live streaming services. If we talk about the figures, the values of streams have been increasing each year since 2012.

However, there has been a downfall in the royalty services for many small musicians and singers when stars like Taylor Swift and Adele have created their stronghold in the industry.

In Beatles’ case, no present day star might be able to cope up with their already existing popularity and historic evidence of an outstanding music. A few hours from now, the world will be celebrating Christmas and so Beatles music will be like an icing on the cake.
