What is the future of music artist apps? Already artists like 50 Cent and Justin Bieber have their own apps that supply fans with information on their new music, tour dates and more. But in the future, will fans actually get albums from music artist apps? Will you download their app and be directly linked to their album instead of going to iTunes or the store? This infographic looks at this possibility.

It begins by basing its case in the fact that 33.5% of music is listened to through iPhones or iPods now. The next most popular way to listen to music is in the car. However, with so many people listening to music on their smartphones, using music artist apps as delivery channels for new albums would make sense.
