Numbers on the Board: How Drake's Streaming Success Is a Lesson in the New Music Business Model

It’s been nearly a decade since Drake flipped a mixtape into a retail project with 2009’s So Far Gone. At the time the move felt divisive, as the freebie version appeared to be the litmus test to see if a Canadian teen drama star could transform into a global rap sensation. A string of sold out American show dates, coupled with a Young Money badge, sealed Drake’s fate, and from that point on he remained a chart-topping beast.

Fast forward to 2018. In one day Drake’s newest track “God’s Plan” (off his latest EP Scary Hours) broke a single-day streaming record for both Apple Music and Spotify, upstaging Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me ...

Why Superstar Artists Like Beyonce and Bruno Mars Are Replacing Powerful Managers With Salaried Staffers

The 1% versus the 15%: a money move, or are impresarios becoming obsolete?


The idea of the artist as mogul is no longer a novel concept. But where that has meant clothing lines, lifestyle brands or other endorsements, some acts are turning their attention to the traditional music management structure, trading commission-based representatives for salaried employees.


In February, Ariana Grande split with Scooter Braun and handed managerial duties to her mother, Joan, and Stephanie Simon at management company Untitled Entertainment, with whom she has worked for the past eight years (though sources say Braun stayed on as a consultant and is involved creatively). In May, Bruno Mars cut ties with ma...

Nielsen's Mid-Year Music Report Confirms Streaming Has Become A Gusher

Last month, The Weeknd graced the cover of FORBES under an apt headline: Streaming Grows Up. He had amassed 5.5 billion streams in the past two years, second only to Drake, en route to a $92 million payday over the past 12 months--exemplifying the model of making one's music widely and cheaply available, then cashing in on the road.


"I really wanted people who had no idea who I was to hear my project," he said. "You don't do that by asking for money."


Today comes further confirmation of streaming's dominance in the music world. Nielsen released its latest annual midyear music report, and thus far in 2017, on-demand audio streams topped 184 billion, up 62.4% over the same time period last year....

Music streaming shatters record According to a new report from Nielsen, streaming hit a high point of 7.5 billion weekly on-demand audio streams during the week ending March 9, 2017. That’s the first time the figure had ever topped 7 billion, setting

A new report from Nielsen out this week paints a picture of the booming on-demand audio streaming business, pointing to a significant increase in consumers’ use of streaming services and record numbers of streams being served. According to the mid-year report, which focuses only on the U.S. market, on-demand audio streams surpassed the 7 billion figure for the first time ever during March of this year.


That’s audio streams, to be clear – not just music.


That is, the term “audio” also includes non-music streams like spoken word recordings and podcasts – the latter of which has also seen rapid growth. Nielsen isn’t breaking out music versus non-music str...
