How is streamshare calculated?

Mar 2, 2023

Every month, in each country we operate in, we calculate streamshare by adding up how many times music owned or controlled by a particular rights holder was streamed and dividing it by the total number of streams in that market.

So if an artist received one in every 1,000 streams in Mexico on Spotify, their rightsholder or distributor would receive one of every $1,000 from the Mexican royalty pool. The total royalty pool for each country is based on the subscription and music advertising revenues in that market.
