Spotify CEO says it pays $6 million a year for a top artist like Taylor Swift
In the wake of Taylor Swift clarifying her reasons for opting out of Spotify, the streaming service’s CEO took to the company blog to offer a rebuttal.
Just when I accepted her bubble gum pop adorability she went all Metallica and Prince. Sorry lady I don't feel bad for you. You're filthy rich, your latest album just went platinum (the only one this year and I think fastest in history?!), and it's the labels that negotiate that crap. The reason album sales are down is because that's not how consumers want to consume music anymore; and even with that being the case YOURS WENT PLATINUM so STFU. Welcome to the future.
