Is 14m SPS equivalent to a 14m selling pure single in terms of net income?

Different streaming services pay different price so too hard to tell, but in theory it should be somewhat close to 14M sales, since that’s the whole point of SPS.

Absolutely not. With that certification which is mostly made up of streaming OTR should be around $2.8M (or more) in royalties based on the $0.0018 average across all streaming platforms that are available in the US combined. Streaming royalties are very low.

Not really.

 

It was only certified 11x and it usually takes at least 6 months for every next certification no matter if the song is already eligible. Considering OTR is definitely eligible for 15x Platinum and probably even 16x, it will take years for Shark Baby to overtake it :cm:

To think this horrible song is the one holding the record :monkey:

well you have Hollywood to thank for that.

They wanted to take a political stance and allow a gay black male to upset country folks with a non country "country" hip hop song that wasn't even good to begin with but they wanted to prove anyone could make this song a hit and gave him two grammy's

 

Toddler's love for baby shark will be the lesser of two evils soon enough

UK Mix shows OTR has just over 1.68 MM downloads, so 12.32 MM + equiv streams.

UF still sits at 1.1× but is probably eligible for 1.6× . RITD & IGF are also probably around 1.4× too. Their labels are slacking.

Should be around $4.5M - $5M in royalties for the label, minus publishing.

Seriously? That's like only 11% royalties of what Dark Horse made.

I know :toofunny3: streaming royalties are terribly low, but also OTR only peaked last year so royalties will continue to grow as long as people are still streaming.
 

Songs from pre-streaming era were very profitable for labels because they didn’t have to depend solely on streaming for revenue; digital downloads, CD sales, vinyl singles & ringtones were bringing in cash.
