"Nobody buys music anymore." I have seen this statement on social media several times in the past week, and it is patently false. Of course streaming has greatly overtaken downloads and music sales in general, but to misinterpret this as no one buying recorded music anymore is absurd.
The saddest part is that it is musicians who are saying this. People do buy my music. No, not by the millions, but they do buy it. If people aren't buying your music, maybe it hasn't occurred to you that at some point you stopped selling it to them.
