Taylor Swift is still feeling salty about Spotify not paying artists enough, or at least not appreciating the value of her art as much as she’d like. Swift throws a little jab at the music streaming startup in the September issue of Vanity Fair.

Apple is under suspicion of pressuring music labels to opt for its streaming music services over “freemium” ones offered by popular companies such as Spotify.
The tech giant has been in the media spotlight following the announcement of its paid music subscription service, Apple Music, this past week.
In typical fashion of their keynote announcements, Apple announced a slew of new services at their WWDC (World Wide Developer’s Conference) in San Francisco today, among which included their new music service app, Apple Music.
The app, which will launch June 30 around the world on all Apple devices, looks to combine iTunes and the traditional Music app to provide streaming access to a new 24/7 global radio station called Beats1.

As shown by Information is Beautiful’s updated-for-2015 visualization of the subject, signed artists make .0019 cents per stream on Pandora and .0011 cents per Spotify stream.

An artist signed to a record label would thus have to have their Youtube video played 4,200,000 times in order to earn the monthly U.S. minimum wage of $1,260.
