Music artists are earning less and less

Why does music artists earning less and less?

Because the costs to make an album today is very high
In the end of the 90's there was a lot of illegal MP3 music that could be downloaded and it continue.

Everything has going digital today. All music are streamed and that doesn't pay the artist as much as back in the days when there was no Internet.

Company's like Spotify and Apple music did an effort to let the user pay for what they want to listen to but the profits for the artist are lower than when the user buy an physical record.

Still there is made a lot of music but the music of an artist is sometimes just a hype that doesn't last for more than a year. Back in the days a song could easily survive for more than 2 years in the charts and still be in the top 10. People didn't have that much as now and were satisfied with the little choice there was. Now there is an oversupply of music. And people are changing faster from music taste than ever. Everything goes faster: what's hot today isn't tomorrow. And that's not different for music.
