Happy Monday Everyone! Little something different this week; I always seem to blab on about all these impacts on the Music Industry, but are they all really that positive?

Everyone has their own opinions on social media, as to whether it is a great tool for communication or the devil that is destroying all of our self-esteem’s. We all love to comment on Rihanna’s latest outfits but is it really a good thing for these women in the music industry to be continuously criticized for their appearance?

On the other hand, with 67.1 million followers, @badgalriri can’t complain about the audience she can reach, to promote herself with a quick selfie.

Less about image and more about music!

Lets be honest, Spotify has completely stolen the show in terms of online streaming. Gone are the days of rushing to HMV to get the latest album. In fact, I don’t know if you have heard but HMV recently collapsed into administration, putting 2200 jobs at risk! Uh oh…

Here’s my quick summary of the positives and negatives surrounding this topic, in a nice purple poster form 😉

Also a little treat for you girls, seeing as valentines day is coming up, I thought I would make a Spotify playlist full of all the greatest love songs. Or if your a single lady, you may prefer to head over to my other post full of tunes for female empowerment!
