princes music should be on bandcamp

This is a platform in favour of artists (they only take 10/15%)

Not like spotify which shafts artists when it comes to royalties

So while you can suggest the estate is following princes views when doing dumb shit like denying the use of NC2U in a documentary, its not really following his views on artists rights.

Would prince have wanted his music on all these artist exploiting platforms? (Even though yes they get more ciews and reach a wider audience)? Im not sure.


More info on bandcamp fyi:

Prince was always against Spotify and the like and was only in favor of Tidal.

But, yu know, Prince is dead and the Estate has bills to pay. I would also like to see him rather on Bandcamp than all the other scamming streamers.

Regarding NC2U on that Sinead O Connor doc, I also would have neglected and ignored anything regarding her and blocked any use of music with her constantly bad mouthing Prince.

I like Bandcamp. Mabe Prince should have presented his new albums on their platform, but who knows? It's not happening now while Warner Brothers and Sony maintain distribution rights to his catalogue, so for so long don't go looking for it there!

Obviously Prince was against what the Estate is doing with his recordings being on every streaming platform, but since he has vacated this plane it is no longer his concern or his call.

Dude was too busy with doing his music thing to organize himself well enough to take advantage of the best royalty and distribution deals that some other companies and the new tech would allow.

Yes, this! I fully agree with your statement. Prince is an icon that must be deserved to be recognized like that. Always, for the rest of the times.
