Major Labels Keep Most of the Money from Spotify, New Study Says

The ongoing dispute between Spotify and (some) recording artists over insufficient payments could experience a drastic plot twist. According to Music Business Worldwide, a recent study led by French recorded music trade body SNEP and Ernst & Young concerning the final destination of the money from streaming services Deezer and Spotify suggests that it's the major labels, not the online streaming service, that takes home the lion share of the payout. In detail, the report reveals that the labels cash in up to 73% of payouts from Spotify/Deezer, followed by writers/publishers with a 16% share, and then artists -- mostly paid by their labels -- who get 11%. Have a closer look at how the money is split through the graphs below. Courtesy of Techdirt.

And here's who takes home what from the revenues paid out by streaming companies to music rights-holders.

The study also indicates that 95% of the major label's share goes into expenses such as marketing, making and/or distributing the music.

Review: J. Cole's '2014 Forest Hills Drive'



For an artist recruited by Jay Z to be the new face of his Roc-Nation label in 2009, it's amazing how little use rapper J. Cole has had for his legendary patron. Aside from a perfunctory Jay Z cameo on Cole's debut album, the 29-year-old North Carolina native, to his credit, has been just fine on his own, building his own brand and releasing two No. 1 albums on which he also served as lead producer.

Still, after hearing his third album, 2014 Forest Hills Drive (* * ½ out of four), out Tuesday, it seems as if it wouldn't hurt Cole to have someone like Jay in his ear every now and then, if for nothing else but to save him from himself.

You at least have to admire his conviction. After two good-but-not-great albums, Cole is doubling down on the premise that, this time, he'll get it right without retooling his formula.

Presenting himself as rap's cocky yet vulnerable everyman, he gets off to a convincing start. The smooth and self-assured manner in which he addresses his career so far on January 28th makes you believe this LP will be the one. Wet Dreamzcould be the album's best moment, a breezy nod to awkward adolescent hookups that serves as a showcase for his self-effacing wit and storytelling skills. Those same talents are used to darker effect on 03' Adolescence, as he strikes an honest emotional tone in rapping from the perspective of a despondent friend urging him to stay focused on his career.

Justin Timberlake and Other Michael Jackson Fans Pay Homage in 'Love Never Felt So Good' Video Tags: moods effect music life Justin Timberlake dance michael jackson


Yahoo Music  

Michael Jackson would approve of the video for his single, "Love Never Felt So Good," the Justin Timberlake duet and lead track from his posthumous album "Xscape" released Tuesday.

The clip, which premiered on "The Ellen Degeneres Show" Wednesday, centers on dancers singing the song and recreating Jackson's signature choreography from some of his best music videos "Smooth Criminal," "Bad," "Beat It," "Billie Jean," and "Thriller." When the video shows a snippet of Jackson dancing in the pool hall in "Beat It," walking down the illuminated sidewalk in "Billie Jean," and doing the famous gravity defying forward lean stunt in "Smooth Criminal," the dancers recreate the moments in the next scene.
