Music and music videos have evolved so much within the last decade. One of the most important changes has occurred in the way that people view videos. There’s a lot of be said for all of the new technology that has surfaced for music lovers. People watch music videos on cell phones, laptops, and iPads. This is part of the changing evolution of digital technology.
It did not take a long time for videos to catch up with the digital movement that has taken place by way of the internet. Music has been heard, shared, and stored on the internet for years. It became such a big deal for music lovers to share and have access to large music collections at any given time. Videos had to follow sooner or later.
It happened very much sooner. Videos have changed along with MP3 music technology that has progressed. This has happened primarily because many stations like MTV, CMT, and BET have changed their formats. These stations were previously heavily video-based channels. This has changed as reality television shows have emerged and become more popular. Videos have taken a backseat on the channels that are primarily known for videos.
The result of all of this has brought music videos to a new platform. The web is now the place where sites like You Tube have become the mainstream sites for music videos. People can watch from their smart phones and select the videos that they desire at any given time. This has enticed more and more people who want to watch music videos online.
This growing trend has also led to a greater number of singles from one album. Two decades ago an album containing an average of 8 tracks would yield around 3 videos. A 10 track album today may possibly yield 5 or 6 videos.
