The latest album by Jimmy Nevis, titled ‘Things We Don’t Talk About,’ has not only pushed boundaries in the music realm but has also surpassed the one million stream mark, a testament to Nevis’s musical brilliance and adept songwriting.

“Reaching one million streams is a great milestone for an independent artist like myself. This album was bold, unhinged, and unapologetic. A lot of its success was linked to social media. It’s just amazing to see a whole rollout plan come together,” expressed Nevis with enthusiasm.

However, as the music landscape evolves in the era of streaming, replacing the days of purchasing physical records and CDs, questions arise about how music consumption has changed and who truly benefits from it. The debate continues on whether streaming has enhanced or hindered artists’ careers, considering the distinction between one million streams and one million record sales in today’s music industry.

“I’m not the biggest fan of the streaming structure. It doesn’t always value the artist and has created an oversaturated market,” Nevis remarked. “Despite streaming not being as lucrative as people purchasing one’s music, it’s a great way to build an audience—exposing your music to a wider group from all over the world. I look forward to seeing the evolution of streaming music. Hopefully, it’ll benefit the artist as much as it benefits the listener.”

Digital streaming platforms have reshaped how audiences engage with music, movies, and podcasts, emphasizing accessibility to a diverse range of content but also contributing to a decline in the perceived value of creative work.

Reflecting on the changes, Nevis, who has been active in the music industry for 12 years, noted, “When I started in the music industry, people were still buying CDs, and I feel very privileged to be making music through the different eras. The initial concept for streaming platforms was to allow independent artists to upload their work and manage their own creations by monitoring their stats.
