Which Music Streaming Service Profits Artists The Most?

Posted at September 20th, 2016 | by Shivani Goel | in

Streaming services are constantly battling against each other by introducing new features, exclusive subscription benefits, design themes, new content, and more. The target market is usually the consumer, so we forget to compare how well the service actually benefits the artists themselves.

Demo Drop put up an image on their Twitter recently, comparing 11 popular streaming services to see how easily an artist can earn $1 in revenue. As expected, Youtube is at the bottom, demanding 776 views for a dollar to be earned. SoundCloud is also around the same. Near the top are Slacker and Jay Z’s Tidal, which requires 185 plays for a dollar earned. If you convert that into rupees, you just need about 3 plays for a rupee earned!

Check out the full comparison of the rest of the services below!
