Recently, in an interview the head of YouTube’s music service head, Lyor Cohen, said that there would be more adds between videos and music.  Which conveys that YouTube will no longer be worthy of reliance music provider. Due to these changes, the flow will be interrupted as listeners will constantly be addressed with continuously ads in between their favorite songs. According to Cohen, this plan is to “frustrate and intimate” YouTube’s music listeners. This would indulge users into signing up for a premium subscription model, ie; now the users would have to pay to listen and watch their favorite songs.

The most inconvenient thing is that most music videos are promotional. From this point, the listener can make a decision as to whether they want the music as a purchase. Youtube already uses ads for financial return, and that’s fair enough, but trying to screw the audience is never a good idea.
