Is traditional music perishing? This question is not uncommon among those who follow the developments in the music industry Marketing and Music: Any Song Can Become Famous? - Today let's dive into a topic that's been buzzing around a lot: the relationship between marketing and music. We all know that marketing plays a massive role in the music industry, but does it actually hold the power to make any track a hit? Or does talent still stand a chance? First off, let's address… . The decline in the genre’s popularity is not surprising, as it has been overshadowed by numerous other styles worldwide. Traditional music, which once held a significant impact, now struggles to maintain its influence.
