Spotify Wrapped 2019 sparks new discussion about artist income
Posted on: 6 décembre 2019, by : Stuart Dredge

As Spotify launched the artist-focused element of its Wrapped 2019 promotion yesterday, the streaming service also offered some new statistics. More than 1.2 million artists were listened to for more than 100 hours on Spotify this year during the period covered by Wrapped (January to the end of October, which isn’t a widely-known fact – Mariah Carey must be FUMING…) Meanwhile, 169,000 artists were listened to for more than 10,000 hours on Spotify during that period.
Speculative maths time! If an hour is around 15 tracks on average, that would suggest more than 1.2 million artists with more than 1,500 streams on Spotify in the first 10 months of 2019, and 169,000 artists with more than 150k streams in that period. Using musician Zoë Keating’s recent ‘0.37 cents per stream’ royalties figures – recordings only, with her distributor not taking a cut – that’s more than 1.2 million artists whose tracks are generating more than $5.55 of recording royalties from Spotify this year, and 169,000 generating more than $555.
