The Evolution of Music Online

Remember the good old days when you would rush home in time to find out what the top music video of the week was on MTV’s TRL? Remember when Jennifer Lopez was a fly girl on In Living Color and Downtown Julie Brown was the queen of the VJs? And raise your hand if you know what VH1’s Pop Up Video is?
