SPOTIFY STILL PAYS ARTISTS OUT OF ONE BIG POT!!

(via Music Business World)

Streaming, driven by Spotify, has propelled U.S. recorded-music industry growth for three years. Spotify in accordance with other leading audio streaming services currently pays money to music rights-holders via a simple "pro-rata" model.  Essentially, this means that the firm pools all of the distributable riches it generates each month then dives up this cash based on the popularity of individual tracks. So, if five Drake songs pull in two percent of all subscriber plays in December, Drake (and other folks who own rights to those five tracks) will get two percent of Spotify's user-paid money. 


Spotify and its rivals should be adopting a "user-centric" payment structure, this means that if you pay $9.99 a month for Spotify Premium and play nothing but Jon Hopkins, the distributable portion of your month (around $6.99 per month) should go to no one but Jon Hopkins - as opposed to being dumped in a big pot of money, before lining Drake's pockets.

Oh Lord, I'm so happy, I don't even know where to start! Ok... I am a victim of the 90's eyebrow trend, I had pencil thin eyebrows and I have thin hair so growing them back was out of the question. For years I've been trying different things to help grow my brows back, but I just got stuck drawing my brows for the next 19 years and I can never get them close enough. As years went by, my brows just kept getting thinner and thinner til I literally had just about a line of hair growing...that's it!  My Story I never had really thick brows growing up but they fit me for what I was born within the trend in the 80's. It wasn't til 2006 I started to learn to apply makeup and use brow pencils to fill in my eyebrows and I got better as the years went by but I was nervous giving myself the full ombre eyebrows that are trending right now. As you can see, I always played it safe drawing on my eyebrows and even tho I used good products to make them stay all day
