    yeah, Kpop prods are cool, until you've heard them all so much you start resenting them for sounding SO FUCKING SIMILAR. NO MUSICAL IDENTITY. it's driving me crazy.

    Lady Gaga & Katy Perry is banned from china because they criticized china for they're human rights violations in Hong Kong

    Def Leopard used their online ban to catch out pirates. Online DJs were a big thing between 2010 and 2017. Pour Some Sugar On Me was one of the most requested songs in the world at that time. But since the song was unavailable online, the only two ways to get it would be illegal downloads or rip a CD, both considered piracy. A LOT of online DJs in America were hit with hefty licensing backfees during those years.

    Spotify isn't really devaluing music. They are trying to keep their service at a fair price. If artists were paid per play of one of their songs as if each play was one entire record bought (as Taylor Swift and many other artists wanted), a Premium subscription would cost about $600. Instead, they made the service near-unusable for free users, to get more people to sign up for Premium, and removed the ability for free users to pick their own songs, so the number of times a top artist is played without Spotify getting paid for it is much lower. The proceeds for this went straight to the record labels, in a bid to keep their catalogs on the service. Now, how much did Swift and her label get for the SLtoos plays the same year? What were the record sales like? And how much did they get from her live performances (the main way labels get paid nowadays)? And how popular would she be, if she wasn't on these music streaming services?

    Why Spotify did it removed songs for pop (Even k-pop and MORE) and it got banned? WHY? 💔 Let me know in the comments. 👍

    spotify took down literally everything relating to blood on the dance floor bc of the allegations against their lead singer (idk if they were true or not). i think its bs bc plenty of artists/band members have done similar things or worse but no one gives a shit & nothing of theirs was taken down, so, like, why did blood on the dance floor have their stuff taken down?

    I tried Tidal for the trial version. I could really hear the difference in the quality but then not all songs/singers i like available, and Spotify catalog is the best catalog i have ever used so far and i tried many streaming services. And yeah not sure why artists not putting their songs on streaming services, at least they much better than piracy 🤦‍♂️🤷‍♂️

    Fun fact: if you put a crappy recording of a Def Leopard song that you recorded at one of their shows they block the audio. You have to misspell their name and that’s even if your channel isn’t monetized and you have less than 200 subs. LoL

    Honestly when Katy Perry was mentioned my first thought was "Oh, it's definitely 'I kissed a girl'" considering China's standpoint on gay rights. Also Title of the video: songs removed from stores Actual content: removed from spotify/streaming

    „Die Ärzte“ -Germany‘s most famous punk band resisted to stream on Spotify, because 1. a lot of infomation about the music on spotify is missing, like the thank-you notes for even the caterer you could find in booklets of CDs. 2. Also while having their own label they feel like loosing control of the data, because you have to trust the data other companies give you. In the end 2018 they decided to publish in streaming, because their younger audience doesn‘t even have players to play CDs anymore🤣 Listen to them, they are amazing! Quite funny if you understand German 😂

    Spotify and other streaming services cite SLtoos as the reason that they can’t raise prices and pay artists more. If they make subscriptions too expensive people will just go to SLtoos which provides all music for free.

    As a Chinese this is the first time I heard "Born This Way" and "Last Friday Night" were banned, cuz I listen to them when I was in high school in China so I went the the local music app (Netease and QQmusic are the main two) and those songs were just right there, don't know why it's said to be "banned" :/

    I get why you don't want to talk about R. Kelly in your videos, it's not a very fun topic. But you should definitely look into it. They have a very interesting discussion in the documentary (Surviving R. Kelly) on how and when to seperate art from the artist. R. Kelly has done some very fucked up things and giving him a platform, or listening to his music on spotify is still making him money. He needs to fade into oblivion if you ask me..
