How Your Listening Behavior Pays Artists On Spotify

My first post on Medium:

If you’re a music fan and listen to Spotify two hours each day:

• Each day you listen to about 30 songs
• Each day you distribute over $0.13 to artists
• Each year you listen to about 10,950 songs
• Each year you distribute over $49 to artists

If you played music on Spotify 24/7 for the whole year, you’d play about 131,400 songs, giving you over $591 to distribute to artists.

By these estimates, it takes 156 listens to equal per-track-purchase artist compensation of $0.70.
