Prince didn’t like streaming, but it could be a big boost to his estate anyway

Despite Prince’s contention in a November 2015 interview that no musician “got rich off digital sales,” the sudden reappearance of his music on streaming services may prove to be a big posthumous boost to his estate — just as it was for Michael Jackson, whose music royalties put his estate back in the black after he died. That is because since last year, streaming now counts toward singles and album certifications. – Daniel Bukszpan, CNBC
