There's almost twice the amount of people in the US since 1960. Easier access to music. You can buy a song from your phone. n*ggas was on rotary phones back then. So yeah...more people, easier access, and whatever other factors you wanna throw out there. Michael Jackson is still the GOAT.

this. on point word for word.

not to mention its funny how i know literally hundreds of people who own beatles music and yet i dont know a single person (and i know plenty) that own anything by kesha. so i also think this is a case of statistics jerking us around.

Exactly...music sales dont mean everything...just because someone has one or 2 hot singles it doesnt mean they can fu*k with the catalogue/skill of a legendary singer/band. It also shows how much of a role producers play...their role often goes uncredited.
