Description Source More information
The statistic above provides data on mobile music revenue in the United States from 2005 to 2017. In 2013, mobile music revenue amounted to 98 million U.S. dollars, down from 166.9 million a year earlier, partially due to RIAA's reclassification of the "mobile music revenue" category to only include ringbacks and ringtones in 2013, and exclude the previous component revenues from music videos, full-length downloads, and other mobile material from this category.
