Article: Your Data Is Shaping the Future of Music

Something to keep an eye on.  The industry is changing. 

"With the industry’s responsiveness to data at an all-time high, it’s becoming possible to use our voices to adjust its course. In theory, how we determine popular taste is democratic—which should be great for diversity and inclusion, in an idealistic, utopian sense. But the tyranny of the majority is real, and online buzz will grab the attention of record labels regardless of what the music sounds like or how the artist acts. Your listening habits have literally become a vote—maybe it's time we start using it."
