Many musicians, from Bob Marley to Lady Gaga, have released albums in USB flash drives. They love the USB drive because they can pack in MP3 files plus exclusive video interviews, music videos, band member profiles, games, and many more. But aside from the obvious, the USB flash drive also serves as a great marketing tool. If the CD legitimizes you as a musician, the USB flash drive gives fans the impression that you’re innovative and that you’re willing to try new things to make them happy.
