Entertainers are not paid to headline the halftime show. The NFL does cover the costs of producing the show as well as a few other expenses for the artists but it does not give them an actual check after it’s all said and done. However, those who take the stage during the big game enjoy other perks, and Shakira and JLo are finding that out now. Read on to find out how much their music sales have spiked and which song has had the most downloads since.
According to initial sales reports via Nielsen Music, the songs performed during the show garnered a sales increase of 1,013% in the U.S. Collectively, those tunes sung by the women sold 16,000 digital downloads on Sunday, up from 1,000 sold the day before.
Billboard noted that the Puerto Rican and Colombian stars also saw an increase with the sales for the rest of the songs in their catalogs as well. Download sales in the U.S. reached 21,000 downloads on Feb. 2, up from 2,000 on Feb. 1.
Whether you have a new phone like the iPhone 11 or an older one like a Motorola Moto G6 or iPhone 6S, you can now take 3D photos with your camera. It’s all thanks to a new app called LucidPix. Instead of requiring a special accessory or two rear phone cameras, the app uses artificial intelligence (AI) to render 3D photos that will move as you tilt and pan your phone.
LucidPix will be available on both iOS and Android later this year, though you can sign up now on the LucidPix website to get early access. The app will be free with a watermark embedded on your photo, but for $1 per photo it can be removed. The free version is aimed at casual users and lets people try the app out before paying for the “Pro” version. The Pro version includes unlimited use of the app for $6 per month or $52 a year.
