Sweden is famous for being the birthplace of Spotify. But now, it’s becoming the re-birthplace for Grooveshark:
According to Alexa stats updated this morning, Grooveshark.li is now ranked 8,671 in Sweden, part of a rapid and continued global rise.
Grooveshark.li is also surging in other countries like Spain, where the ranking is 17,742. Other countries are also welcoming the new Grooveshark clone, including Colombia (12,046) and Israel (16,664).
Meanwhile, the clock is ticking on a music industry that has spent tens of millions burying Grooveshark in court but somehow can’t make it go away. In primetime mega-markets like the US, for example, Grooveshark.li is about to break the all-important 100,000-mark, a threshold already crossed in Euro-heavyweights like France, Germany, and the UK.
The tenaciously resilient grooveshark.li is believed to be the work of a shadowy Grooveshark ex-employee, one determined to frustrate the major label cabal. “So because we don’t have goldman [Sachs] paying $20 million to line the pockets [the major labels] just dug up some dirty emails and shut it down after running us dry,” the disgruntled ex wrote in a recent DMN op-ed. “So you happy now music industry? You just fucked yourselves over and made a problem that will be 10 times as bad that you can NEVER control. And artists LOSE again.”
