Isn't it weird and unfair how the people that bring us joy and make us feel different things, doesn't get the money that they deserve? How we consumers take what they make for granted? This is the topic that are going to be discussed in my post. But the real question is, how can we help the artists to get their money worth? The first thing is to stop listen to music on Spotify.
How much money Spotify pays the artist per play is ridiculous, to enlighten you it’s $1 per 250 play. Yes, I understand that a Spotify account, where you can listen to endless music, is cheaper than buying all the songs you like on iTunes or similar, but is that really fair for the artist? Someone have actually put down their heart and soul into these songs and what do we consumers do? Throw shit at them. Because that’s a good way to treat the people that bring us joy and all the other feelings... So if we want to have a good relationship with these amazing and creative people, we need to change the way we think and consume. We need to stop using streaming sites that doesn’t give the artist what they deserve and start using them who do. Now, you’re probably wondering “but which site does this crazy person want me to use?!?” Well, Tidal of course. Tidal is a streaming site that gives the artist more money per play than Spotify, as much as $7 per 250 play. In my eyes that’s at least a little more fair than what Spotify offers.
Some people argues that Tidal doesn’t offer the customer the same amount of song etc as Spotify does. But the thing is that Tidal’s supply is more exclusive, since you only can find some songs and videos on their site. And most importantly, the artists get treated much better and if we want them to continue to make music that brighten our sad lives, we need to take care of these talented people and give them the money they deserve. Because believe me when I say that you don’t want to hear people like me sing.
