Kanye West and Daft Punk killed it at the Grammys on Sunday night with “Stronger”, pumping out an alternative mix of the track that was incredible. Kanye followed with a moving performance of “Hey Mama”, in tribute to his recently deceased mother. Great performance.
Why can’t I buy .mp3s of these? Is the music licensing system so complicated that it’s not possible? Seriously, I’d happily plunk down $0.99 a track for live performances and I’ve thought this for a long time. Slice Kanye’s performance into the two tracks, sell them for $1.98 and take my money. I’m not sure why award shows, artists, etc. aren’t looking at this as a revenue stream. That leads me to think it’s probably too complicated for anyone to make any real money. But, I for one would be happy to pay for quality recordings of these songs.
Anyway, watch below for the performance.
