    What Apple Music, Spotify, YouTube, Google Play, and Microsoft Groove Are Paying Artists...
    Paul Resnikoff

    Sadly, most artists and labels have no idea what they should be getting paid by streaming platforms like Spotify and Apple Music, and none of these services are offering any guidance. So, we started publishing whatever royalty statements we could get our hands on (send us yours at news@digitalmusicnews.com and help the artist community out).

    Most recently, we’ve been working with an independent r&b, rap/hip-hop label to test the waters on a range of services. Alongside some low-lying payments, they also discovered some outrageously high per-stream payments from Tidal and Microsoft Groove (who are now paying several dollars per stream, and no, that’s not a typo, scroll down).

    After a test on their catalog, here are the resulting payments that came through. These are before distributor INgrooves took their cut and applied other costs. All of these are per-stream payments.

    You’ll notice that Microsoft Groove is not part of this graph. The reason is that their payouts are so high right now, it would make it impossible to see the relatively tiny payouts from everyone else (scroll down and you’ll see what I mean).

    And, here’s a more complete breakdown of everything captured. Aggregated per-stream payouts across all countries at the top, with specific countries listed where data was available.

    Where's SiriusXM? They charge a huge and increasing every year fee for music royalties.

    Friend. We just got skylarbrie trained, and you want to have him go diaperless already. Not a great idea.
