We talk a lot about unlimited downloads here at Synchedin. But, since streaming is now king, we wanted to take a look at the most streamed songs on Synchedin!
Who doesn’t love a good stream? Live stream, music stream, a stream of chocolate milk. It’s all good. The way we ingest music has changed dramatically over the past decade or so. Streaming has become the dominant form of music distribution, with streaming being responsible for 75% of the recorded music industry’s revenue in 2018, according to the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America).
This change in the musical landscape has helped stamp out music piracy, and also give a platform to DIY and indie artists. Thanks to distributors like RouteNote, artists of all standings can share their music with the world on streaming platforms.
Although there has been much debate about the fairness of the revenue models for streaming services. Spotify namely coming under fire for paying artists a disproportionate amount of earnings, making it difficult to earn a living from music in the digital world. Earlier this year, SoundCloud announced it would be moving to a user-centric payment system. Paying “fan-powered” royalties means artists would receive earnings directly as a result of fans listening to their music, giving them a fairer piece of the pie.
