How To Submit Your Songs To Spotify Playlists


Getting your song into a Spotify playlist can be a major win for introducing your music to new fans. Fortunately for artists, the process is now a bit easier than before. You no longer have to hunt around for hidden web forms, find direct email contacts, or consult the ancient runestones to submit an upcoming release to Spotify’s in-house editorial team for playlist consideration.
Spotify announced a far more formalized and transparent process for playlist submissions — and it’s something you can do directly through your Spotify for Artists account, as long as your song has already been delivered to Spotify and scheduled for release.

Spotify Shuts Down Its Uploading Program


Spotify is shutting down its direct upload program, which allowed artists to upload music to the streaming service without getting a third party involved.

Spotify announced its decision to close the beta program and stop accepting direct uploads by the end of the month. Spotify’s direct upload beta was launched last September. It allowed independent artists to upload to the streaming service without having distribution.

Indie artists will need to resume using services provided by companies such as TuneCore and DistroKid.

“The best way for us to serve artists and labels is to focus our resources on developing tools in areas where Spotify can uniquely benefit them — like Spotify for Artists (which more than 300,000 creators use to gain new insight into their audience) and our playlist submission tool (which more than 36,000 artists have used to get playlisted for the very first time since it launched a year ago). We have a lot more planned here in the coming months.”

Spotify Now Searching For Female Podcasters @Spotify


Spotify sees a clear market opportunity when it comes to this new space for content creation. Even with the success of the show, a recent study showed that only 22% of podcasts are hosted by women, and the number’s even smaller when it comes to women of color. Spotify wants to change that.

Spotify May Be Doing Deals With Independent Artist


As the internet grows and the music industry landscape continues to morph, artists are finding newer ways to generate income without the help of a major label. According The New York Times, the folks at Spotify are helping some of them along the way.

In a piece the outlet published Thursday (Sept. 6), The Times reported that Spotify has been making licensing deals with independent artists. Their sources say the streaming giant has made deals with independent artists and their management firms instead of labels.

Although the deals don't resemble the seven-figure contracts offered by majors—The Times says the advance deals they looked into were worth "advance payments of tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars"— the licensing agreements give artists a larger portion of money earned from the streaming platform than an artist usually would from a record label, which The Times say usually take 52 percent of streaming revenue for songs.

In an additional advantage, Spotify's licensing deals are put in place without independent artists having to forfeit the rights to their songs. Because of that, and the fact that Spotify doesn't prohibit them from licensing their tracks with rival streaming platforms, artists can potentially earn more money than they would at a major without having to deal with the strings that typically come with major record deals.

R. Kelly Music Removed From Spotify


Spotify said it will no longer promote R. Kelly’s music as accusations continue to pile up that the R&B singer ran a violent “sex cult.”

The Swedish music streamer said Thursday it will stop “actively promoting” Kelly’s music through in-house playlists and algorithmic recommendations as a part of its new “public hate content and hateful conduct policy.”

Streaming Music Has Sold More Than CDs

I have not heard a soul in this world that say they dislike +Spotify. Even artist can +Get Your Music On Spotify now and days. The music industry is changing, with music streaming earning more money than the sale of CDs for the first time ever in 2014. According to the RIAA, music streaming earned a total of $1.87 billion in 2014, while CDs generated $1.85 billion, with the entire industry earning $6.97 billion overall, which was slightly down from their numbers in 2013.

Though these numbers are close, it’s clear that streaming is on the upswing while CDs are becoming a thing of the past, especially with Spotify records already getting shattered by Kendrick Lamar and Drake just three months into the year. Now all music streaming services needs is for Taylor Swift to get on board, and it’s a wrap.

Spotify Hits 30 Million Paid Subscribers

Spotify last announced subscriber figures this past June with a count of 20 million. By the end of 2015, that number had reportedly surpassed 25 million. Spotify’s biggest competitor, Apple Music, claims 11 million paid subscribers.

Kanye West Buys Spotify Music

 


Forbes declared Kanye West, a billionaire around this time last year, evaluating his worth at $1.3 billion. Kanye West disagreed and said the estimate was about $2 billion off. And he just proved to us all that he wasn’t lying. It’s official: As of today, the fashion and music mogul has just acquired the ever-popular audio streaming platform, Spotify.


Something big like this isn’t unpredictable for Kanye West, but people are curious about his intentions for buying out Spotify. Some are saying it’s just another outcome of the rivalry with long-time collaborator Jay-Z, who once held a majority stake in Tidal. I guess the Chicago native was really taking Watch The Throne literally… When will the Jay and Ye beef end?!

POPOFF & Wyatt Woodley Release The New Single "Black Room" | @POPOFFWORLDWIDE @WYATTELIAS_


Press play on new music from up and coming artists POPOFF and Wyatt Woodley. “Black Room” is the first of many collaborative songs to be released by POPOFF and Wyatt Woodley. Their juxtaposed approaches in both production and writing clash in a brilliant textural, synthesized landscape. Anthemic in structure, “Black Room” is a pop ballad for any time of the day, but best after dark.

POPOFF is set to continue dropping singles throughout the rest of this year while Wyatt is in the final stages of his self-produced project. Two LA-based artists in their early 20’s, POPOFF is originally from Europe and draws inspiration from French House, Electronic, and R&B music. While Wyatt is originally from Northern California and inspired by LoFi Hip Hop, Synth Trap, and Cloud Rap.

Jay-Z Returns To Spotify Music


Rap icon Jay-Z brought his music discography back to the world’s largest streaming platform Spotify, leaving Tidal subscribers scratching their heads. The service he bought for $56 million in 2014 has struggled to gain any real market share against major players like Spotify, Apple Music and Amazon Music.

Is it genius marketing for the Tidal owner, or does this show he’s throwing in the streaming wars towel, as his company continues to struggle with growth?

The Breakdown You Need to Know: Even with Tidal’s exclusive music offerings and a $200 million investment from Sprint, it still doesn’t seem to be enough to keep the ship afloat, and Jay-Z may be jumping off the boat.

Also See: Sprint To Buy Parts Of Tidal

Jay-Z has been a vocal critic of tech companies in regards to the issue of compensating artists, so it’s a bit odd that he’s back in bed with them. Especially, when you consider Tidal markets itself as a “more equitable [business] model for artists” to make money while streaming their music.

In the beginning it was all good at Tidal, with artists like Beyoncé, Kanye West, Madonna and Chris Martin to name a few, who all had an ownership stake in the company. Each of the artists reportedly were given 3% equity in the platform, with Jay-Z holding the remaining stake.

The onset of streaming has poured new life into the music industry, with revenue hitting $5.4 billion earlier this year, $4.3 billion just from streaming services. Apple Music and Spotify boasts 113 million and 60 million subscribers respectively, which is massively hard for Tidal’s 2016 self-reported 3 million subscribers to compete with.

Also See: Tidal CEO Steps Down

Tidal’s offering is the most expensive option on the market at $20 per month. Amazon Music and Apple Music come in at $14.99 and $9.99 respectively, just another reason subscribers have been few and far between for Jay-Z’s company. They have tried other ways to grow subscribers by heavily discounting its subscription service for first responders. So if you consider yourself to be a hero, the company was offering a 40% discount for its Premium and Hi-Fi plans.

Jay-Z seems to be taking a “if you can’t beat them, join them” approach to music streaming and social advocacy. Let’s not forget he has now partnered with the NFL on it’s social justice mission, while also curating their halftime show.
