With the release of Drake’s “Thank Me Later” do you think he can help
boost sales or is the music industry DONE?

I think the music industry killed itself by not focuses on technology

I’m not buying Drake’s album…everyone on Twitter downloaded it but
I’m not a fan of his music. So until the msuic industry gets it’s act
together we will see album sales dip even lower.
