It was only a matter of time

I think anyone who has had their finger on the digital pulse over the last 5 years new this day was not far off. Digital music sales have topped physical music sales for the first time in history – accounting for 50.3 per cent of US music sales last year. Downloads were up 8.4 per cent from 2010, according to Nielsen data and a Billboard report and only 49.7 per cent of music was sold in stores last year, down 5 per cent from the previous year.
