  1. There is something...

    And how about some journalism here ?
    I don’t know like… this is a payment for what ? (artist royalties, songwriting, publishing ?) And for how many streams ?

      You really can’t teach anyone how to be an international deep-mob financial syndicate member inside the hit–pulpit : A boss like the ‘ Terror Poet ‘ Literati shit and spit on the discreet world of the famed , Illuminati , anytime and anywhere their kingdom sit !

    Since we’re on that topic, Spotify paid me *absolutely nothing* for the past six years!

    Admittedly I don’t have any music on there whatsoever but apparently we just publish tweets/facts/rumours these days and don’t bother with any context since it’s irrelevant :/

    In other news, 2 years ago… “La Roux says she ‘never made any money from record sales”. I found this article after just googling La Roux on search bar. She’s just whining like a little child about royalties right now. This isnt about Spotify or royalties at all. Another quote from her:

    “I spent two years on Trouble in Paradise and I most likely won’t make any money out of it,” Jackson recently told Digital Spy. “The only money I will make is from radio play. All the money I’ve had up until now is from radio. I think people find this really, really, really hard to believe. It’s not a lie, it’s just the way it is.”

    So it means its definitely the record labels are its fault here. But artists always blame a boogeyman on there shortcomings on there failed contract negotiations.

    @LaRoux – make music people want to listen to. be more popular.

    When did streaming become an entitlement program?

      its called being paid fairly for the work you do – we would not come around your house, eat your food, get you to slave for us and then when you wanted to be paid tell you to ” make better food” then I will pay you or ” why shudl I pay you? its not an entitlement” try to imagine your job and what you do and then apply your twattish comment to your own prospects. “try to be a better at your job” what a utter utter myopic comment to make

    She may ask her record label where they are hiding the money instead of calling out Spotify on social media…
    How do you explain that unsigned / indie artists (but with a decent fanbase, touring activity and good tracks) are making shitloads of money from Spotify, whereas signed and heavily marketed artists from the top-tier aren’t?
    This recurrent streaming-bashing in the media is becoming ridiculous.

    It takes around 1,200 streams to add up to the same amount as ONE DOWNLOAD.

    So, if you don’t allow your music to be streamed and get only 2 extra sales you have doubled your money.

    La Roux’s top ten tracks on Spotify add up to roughly 108 million streams. 108,000,000 x $.005 (average) per stream = $540,000. If she’s receiving such a poultry amount (£100 a quarter) then she needs to talk to her label and management about her contract.

    Complainer and whiner. It’s 100 more than you had before and it didn’t hurt sales anywhere else. If you think it did, then prove it. You can’t.

    Do all you societal kiss asses think the record company’s are going to reward you for sucking up to them. Your main deal is you want something free and for the masses to let you into their little club. Of course artist deserve more compensation for everything or soon you will have no music to steal.
