The report, which breaks down the revenue statistics by both genre and country of publication, heavy metal of all genres saw a notable 154% increase in streaming in 2018, out-earning a 133% increase seen by J-Pop, and 68% increase in R&B/Soul genres. As if that wasn’t impressive enough, TuneCore copyright holders across all genres earned $83 million in the first financial quarter of 2019, marking a 21% increase over the first quarter of 2018.
