Or how about greedy record companies compensate their artists better?

How do artists get paid for streams? Don't they make a bajillion dollars if their music is streamed a lot?

They make $0.008 per stream so it takes a lot for them to see much anything substantial

Whoa so I'm seriously misinformed. Thanks for sharing -- that's ridiculously low.

Nah, Spotify is notorious for paying badly. That's why artists get screwed over by streaming.

wouldn't this just result in rich mainstream artists making even more money from their dumb stans while the smaller artists continue to get screwed

definitely, I think that's exactly what will happen. dumb stans will think they'll get noticed if they spend all their money on tipping their fave, and mainstream money-hungry artists will start building Spotify tips into their promo. meanwhile small artists will continuing making fractions of a penny per stream with a slight bonus in tips.

If anything they should just not have the option available for artists who obviously wouldn't need it.
