Estate is nearing deal to stream Prince's music

https://www.bloomberg.com...it-records

.

"The estate of Prince Rogers Nelson, one of the few musicians unavailable on most streaming services, is closing in on deals that will pave the way for the artist’s music to play at major outlets like Spotify and Apple Music, according to a person with knowledge of the matter."

.

I wish that Prince was more open to using more online places for playing/selling his music.

.

The end of the article states::

"The popularity of streaming has all but forced artists to make deals. The Beatles licensed their music to streaming services in time for Christmas in 2015, while Neil Young and The Black Keys have made more of their songs available for streaming in recent months.

“After five years of struggling with this we agreed to put the keys songs on Spotify,” Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney tweeted Dec. 19. “I’d rather people hear our music than not.” "

.

I agree with Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney.

His legacy can not grow if it's not out there, he's not here promoting himself any more so there is no draw if there's no music available. I'm really happy to hear this is understood and they are going to make sure new fans will be better able to tune in.

I know some fans will be aghast that the Estate is even considering this but as others have said his music needs to get out there and he's no longer here to promote it. A number of artists (Beatles, Zeppelin, Metallica, AC/DC to name a few) held out on streaming but eventually ended up there. This isn't selling out it's going where the people are. And I suspectdie hard fans will buy new music when it comes out anyway. If nothing else if this means ALL his albums will be available for purchase on iTunes that's a good thing.
