HOW we buy 音乐 has changed inexorably. That is the conclusion of a newly published 报道 on the world’s digital 音乐 market.
According to the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry, outlets such as Apple’s iTunes store accounted for 27 per cent of the world’s recorded 音乐 sales last year. The bestselling track online was Poker Face 由 Lady Gaga, selling 9.8 million units.
Digital sales totalled $4.6 billion, a 12 per cent rise since 2008. Online sales are slowly starting to offset the decline in sales at ”bricks and mortar” record shops.
