CHUBBY CHECKER - LET'S TWIST AGAIN
With streaming music becoming a much talked about issue for a while and in light of the research results of Digital Music News (see below) Ancroo Live have taken the decision that song of the day posts will no longer be YouTube links. We feel it is just as important to support artists as well as crew, as after all without their music we wouldn’t have a job. So from now on we will be posting Apple Music links for song of the day.
Digital Music News has tried to establish how much various music services pay for streaming. According to its analysis, Napster pays the highest rate at $0.019 per stream, followed by Jay-Z’s Tidal at $0.0125 and Apple at $0.00735 per stream. YouTube pays the lowest rate of only $0.00069 per stream. Spotify is now, it seems, somewhere in the middle ground, paying about $0.00437 per stream.
