I find it an interesting topic because I'm curious what sales are actually the "breakeven point" for artists. Like what's the number range for a project to be considered a financial failure? @lushLuck seems to have a good point, though, that even "flops" for major pop stars can maybe still make money. In any case, stars of the A-List caliber can probably still find coin through endorsements and they can just use music projects to build hype for endorsement deals. Don't they also get decent coin from streaming of their old material?
