For musicians to earn a living…

This song by Wiz Khalifa is #1 globally right now on Spotify with 3,458,369 daily plays. Spotify pays out roughly $.0011 per stream. That’s just $3,800/day on the most popular song in the world among Spotify’s 60 million users.

At this pace that song will need to match this popularity level for 263 more days for Spotify to pay out $1,000,000. Yikes! Feel bad for the little artists…
