That's exactly why a lot of artists don't use it. Lady Gaga made $50 from it one month, and she was by far the most played artist on there (when her second album just came out). You know something's fishy when that happens

Wasn't that actually 150 dollars paid to one half of the song writing team, on plays out of Sweden?

But yes, many artists will have to have hundreds of plays before they earn a single dollar.

It was for one song, "Poker Face" (probably one of her most famous ones) but it was the total payout. And I did get the amount wrong, it was around $150

So you'd need over 6,500 plays to earn a single dollar by my very quick calculations

And Spotify's side of the story. It seems like there was some controversy over all of that. But, that was 3 years ago, almost an entire lifetime when it comes to web culture.

But we agree in principle. I have read that small artists get paid hundredths of a penny for each play on some streaming services.

Who needs this jew bullshit when there's Soulseek?


That's possibly the most "Jewish" comment I've ever seen on here Rolling Eyes


Spotify = paying some website for some band's music but the band WON'T see a dime from it.

Soulseek = download the same band's music for free.

It's basically the same thing, the band will not get a cent for what I downloaded, but at least I won't be fattening some jew's (who is making a profit and NOT paying the bands) pockets.

And yes, I do buy "physical" music regularly. I buy from the bands or labels, not some outsider jude.

The difference is that the artist / label decides to put their music there, instead of just blatant downloading which neither party has any say in.

Well in that case it's ok I guess. I didn't know that the bands/labels willingly put up their stuff in that shit. Very Happy

At any rate, I would rather make my own lps/cds/tape rips if I want them on my phone and shit.

The article just says it was "claimed" that she made that much on the song, but the story seems a little more complicated than that. To be honest though, you'd have to wonder how much the labels make from this stuff. Maybe not a lot but when you think that they'll use any means to make any money, I'm sure they're not doing it for the benefit of the people. If it wasn't profitable for them, they simply wouldn't allow it or they'd be charging spotify more for the right to stream their music which spotify doesn't exist without. I mean according to the article in the link you posted it says

Exactly, I dont see why people are expecting this program to have uber underground metal at all, its obviously marketed towards mainstream crowd, the best thing you can get here are Nuclear blast metal and several underground acts like previously stated. .


Not true everything from Vomitor to Revenge to Negative Plane can be found on it. It may not have every single Goat band in existence on there, but it has more than you'd imagine. I've discovered a few bands from it.
