Marc Jakob is truly a gifted “Straight A” 5th grade student, and has recently achieved a remarkable milestone in entertainment, reaching over 2 Million “Digital Streams” in only 4 months on global platform giants such as, Apple, Tidal, Amazon, SoundCloud and more. Since his initial single release date of October 05, 2022, “PMJ” has gained over 25,000K monthly listeners on Spotify Music for his various song titles, including additional tracks such as, “7 days”, “Ki 2 to the Streets” and “Stay in School”; along with being featured in notable National DJ Pools, such as “Nerve” and “Digiwaxx” DJs.

Coined amongst Music Taste-Makers and avid listeners as “The Baby Jay-Z” for his imaginative topics and innovative lyrical prowess, “PMJ” is spearheading a once professedly vacant genre of Hip-Hop & Rap Music performed by pre-teen adolescents. Following in the footsteps of trailblazing recording artists such as “Kris Kross,” “Lil’ Bow Wow,” and “Lil’ Romeo,” “Prince Marc Jakob” exceptionally incorporates virtuous messages of higher education, self-esteem and personal success into an era in which topics of illicit and negligent lifestyles engulf Hip-Hop.

Commencing his journey into the field of entertainment at the tender age of only 5 years old, “Prince Marc Jakob,” born Marc Jakob Lewis, began composing music productions and creating unique dance routines very young, which explains his natural flair for developing his current single releases. When asked why he chose to pursue a career as a Hip-Hop artist, “PMJ” replied, “I really love writing and creating songs because it makes people happy, and can generate positive changes in the world.”

With the current success of “Prince Marc Jakob,” the future appears to be paved with gold for Emerald Nation Entertainment and its exceptional new sound, which is currently distributed internationally by Sony Music/The Orchard.

Music streaming giant Spotify has shaken up the industry once again with its recent announcement of raising prices for its music download services. In this blog post, we will explore the details of the price increase, its potential impact, and the new features Spotify plans to introduce. Let’s dive in!

The Price Changes:
According to a Bloomberg report, Spotify will be increasing prices in the United States, as well as in various international markets. Individual plans are anticipated to rise by approximately $1 per month, while family plans will see a $2 increase. These changes come as Spotify aims to better serve its diverse user base.

New Pricing Tiers and Features:
In addition to the price hike, Spotify plans to introduce new pricing tiers and services. One exciting possibility is the inclusion of a higher audio quality option. Audiophiles and music enthusiasts will likely appreciate the enhanced listening experience this feature brings forth.

The Reason Behind the Price Increase:
As technology and licensing costs continue to rise, it’s no surprise that Spotify must adjust its pricing to ensure sustainability and continue offering a top-notch music streaming experience. The company consistently seeks to strike a delicate balance between providing affordable access to music and fair compensation for artists.

Impact on Users:
While any price increase can be an unwelcome change, it is crucial to consider the value Spotify brings to the table. With millions of songs at your fingertips, personalized playlists, and groundbreaking algorithms that recommend music you’ll love, the platform remains an extraordinary resource for music lovers.

Alternatives to Consider:
If the price increase has you rethinking your music streaming subscription, it’s important to remember that there are several other streaming services available in the market. Platforms like Apple Music, Amazon Music, and YouTube Music all offer unique features and vary in pricing. It’s worth exploring these alternatives to determine which one aligns best with your needs and budget.

The Bigger Picture:
As digital music consumption continues to evolve, it’s essential to recognize the efforts Spotify makes to support artists and drive the music industry forward. Despite the increase in pricing, Spotify remains committed to nurturing talented musicians, ensuring a platform for creativity, and connecting artists with their fans.

Ultimately, Spotify’s pricing adjustment reflects the constant evolution of the music streaming landscape. While price increases are never easy to digest, it is vital to appreciate the immense value Spotify provides to millions of users worldwide. As Spotify rolls out these changes and introduces new features, we can look forward to an even better music streaming experience. So, open your playlist, turn up the volume, and let the music continue to inspire and uplift you on Spotify!
