Online Music Buying Infographic

According to the latest Nielsen research, only 2.1 percent of the albums released in 2009 sold even 5,000 copies — that’s just 2,050 records out of nearly 100,000, and to fewer people than go to a small liberal arts college. As if that weren’t bad enough, even the bands who do move units end up paying through the nose, mouth, eyes and ears for management, legal fees, producers and other expenses, leaving most of them scrounging to pay for record advances and, if they can afford it, health care.
From the outside, it often sounds fun to be in a band. But before picking up that guitar or microphone, take a look at where the money from a record goes.

Jennifer Lopez Facebook Fans To Promote Her New Song

Jennifer Lopez is making fans work for her next single. To snag the song “I’m Into You” from iTunes before the official release date, enough fans have to “Like” the tune on her Facebook Page.

Lopez and her label, Island Def Jam, announced the campaign Wednesday with a custom tab on the artist’s Facebook Page titled “Like for Love?” The page includes a 30-second clip of the song, featuring Lil Wayne, and a call to show J-Lo love by clicking “Like.” So far, the song has received around 2,000 Likes (2% on J-Lo’s “Love Meter”) — but fans have until the official release date, April 5, to “Like” the jam.
Fans can also share a link to the page in order to win an autographed copy of Lopez’s new album, Love — those who get the most clicks on their links will score the goods, and those who share the link and “Like” the song could win a trip to see the American Idol finale in Los Angeles (Lopez appears as a judge on the show).
This is hardly the first time an artist has leveraged the Facebook Like to offer a song. In fact, Lil Wayne premiered the first single off of his new album exclusively on Facebook (with a call to “Like” to unlock), and Jay-Z and Kanye West launched a dedicated Page on the site so that fans could get a first listen of “H.A.M,” off of Watch the Throne.

Google Testing Mobile Streaming Music Service

Internet search giant Google is taking a major step forward in its expected bid to rival Apple’s iTunes.

Google is believed to be actively testing “Google Music” internally, a clear indication to tech and music industry analysts that a new service announcement is imminent.

Tips from employees inside Google confirm that a new service is actively being “tinkered with.”
The latest buzz seems to confirm the validity of what CNET calls a major accidental discovery earlier this month.
 Two weeks ago someone writing at the XDA Developers forum claimed to have accidentally discovered Google Music after installing the Honeycomb version of the Android operating system on a phone. Turns out, that was indeed a working version of the service, the music industry insiders said, adding, however, that the final version could be much different.
According to Mobilemarketingwatch Google Music is widely expected to be a streaming music service that enables users to access their content from any and all connected devices.Sources inside the music industry say Google would have likely introduced the service long ago if not for the negotiations that reportedly continue between the internet behemoth and top record labels.

The music industry, however, is more than eager for an iTunes rival to enter the market. According to CNET, the prospect of an iTunes competitor of Google’s caliber “has music industry executives giddy.”
