Prince criticized Apple Music – Apple does not allow the artists to make money online

It is believed that Apple is more profitable for Music artists due to higher deductions. However, in a recent interview the singer, known under the alias Prince, has denied the allegation and criticized Apple for the lack of opportunities to earn.

“Show me a singer who made a fortune on digital sales? Apple did a good job for that, right? Because everyone knows: all the money in the form of royalties from Apple come only for the track Purple Rain,” Prince said in an interview with the British Guardian newspaper.

The singer said that he had predicted this situation in 2010: “the power of the Internet is exhausted. This is a bad place for those who wants to earn on his work. And I was right.”

Perhaps Prince is not getting enough for their compositions, because it swept them all web services, including YouTube and Spotify, and partly from Apple’s Music due to agreements with the Tidal, where he posted his entire back catalogue.

The musician frequently changes his attitude to the Internet, fighting with the fan sites in his name and answering one question in chat in Facebook (of four thousand), rolling his lawsuits for copyright infringement on the network urbi et orbi, and in 2013, the electronic frontier Foundation gave him its antinegro Raspberry Beret Lifetime Award.

This is not the first skirmish of the famous musicians with Apple. This year, the company revised policy of the service after the conflict with Taylor swift.

Given that Apple’s Music you cannot listen to music without a paid subscription, similar criticism of Apple seems a little strange. On the other hand, the company may take that as a compliment: Apple Music becoming synonymous with streaming music, despite such a late arrival in the market.
