It's understandable. There's more people in the world now, and markets that mostly weren't consuming music legally in 1999 are now thanks to streaming.

If you are independent than more money for you. Artist in the late 90s were only making like 10 cents an album sold or something like that and had crappy deals.Β

They could sell 2 million albums and only make $200,000.
