When it comes to music downloading/streaming platforms, we all know the two big ones are Spotify and Apple Music in the United States. In the music industry, these types of platforms are called DSPs (Digital Service Providers). Understandably, Spotify has gotten a lot of criticism about how little they pay the artists per stream. Yes, I do agree artists and songwriters deserve to be paid more.
Over 20,000 songs are uploaded to streaming platforms like Spotify EVERY DAY. Yes, that is over 600,000 new songs added to digital platforms every month!! (Some days it’s as high as 40,000 songs.) Let that sink in. If you release a single this month, your song is 1 out of 600,000 new songs. And, that’s just NEW songs. Think about ALL the songs that already exist on digital platforms.
