In this post, Minneapolis musician Jeremy Messersmith volunteers the fact that he makes about 0.49 cents—that is, about $0.0049—for every stream of a song.
I just figured that I play about 30 songs a day on my laptop. That’s about 900 songs a month. I pay $5.00 per month for Spotify Unlimited, which works out to 0.56 cents—that is, about $0.0056—per song.
This doesn’t really prove anything except that Spotify isn’t getting rich off my back, but it’s certainly interesting given that iTunes keeps about $0.30 per $0.99 download.
