Re: Opa Gangnam style

Not every album or song is available on Spotify. Some artists and music labels choose not to release to Spotify.

 

The only thing Spotify does is upload the music that is sent to them. You can find out why some songs/artists are not on Spotify over here.

 

Some music labels only release to certain countries while blocking the release from the rest.


It's all about who owns the rights to the music and where they want it released to.

Music would be better if labels didn't block their releases from certain countries, but sadly this is how the music business works.

I would see why not, people have been wanting to hear this song recently adding it would just be a good move.

It's just kind of frustrating that it's parody "Open Condom Star" is on Spotify, but the original isn't.

And all they're getting by this is shooting themselves in their own foot.

Unless those labels decide on lessening their distribution policy, they're just pushing music lovers to download their music illegally in the countries which aren't approved yet or never will be.

A lose-lose situation in my view.
