L’honorable Chrystia Freeland a déposé le budget 2022 qui prévoit 50 millions de dollars à partager entre Patrimoine canadien, le Conseil des arts du Canada et Téléfilm Canada. Bien que des détails demeurent à préciser, le milieu musical accueille cette annonce avec une vive déception. Pourtant, l’industrie de la musique et du spectacle demeure parmi les plus affectées par la pandémie et avait présenté des demandes structurantes pour lui permettre de s’attaquer à l’exigeante reconstruction de son secteur qui s’amorce et qui s’étendra sur plusieurs années.

How much of Spotify's $7bn 2021 payout was for new artists?

The most relevant stat is for the artist category that Spotify calls ‘Breakthrough’: artists who had fewer than 1m streams before 2020, but who are now in the top 50,000 artists on the platform. Spotify said that 21,600 artists fell into this category – just over 43% of the top 50,000 – and that the average recording and publishing royalties generated on Spotify by their music in 2021 was $90k each. That means around $1.94bn of royalties – 27.8% of Spotify’s total payouts.

TikTok’s Fingerprints Were All Over The Grammys

TikTok is now a go-to platform for discovering new music, with songs both organically gaining popularity and becoming hits through influencer-driven marketing. The social media app—which is now the world’s most popular website—allows creators to attach snippets of songs to their videos, a feature that can make some tracks inescapable when turned into lip syncing or dance trends.

Politiques publiques

Canadian songwriters made $67 on average from streaming last year. Would Bill C-11 change the game?

Bill C-11, which is now being debated, would make digital platforms including Spotify and YouTube promote Canadian music in the same way as traditional radio stations, which have to give Canadian music allotted airtime.
But because digital platforms and radio work differently – with platforms allowing people to select what they listen to and when – the bill is likely to give flexibility about how to promote Canadians’ work.

The Music Catalog Boom May Be Coming to an End

But this isn’t the early days of the music boom anymore when Merck Mercuriadis frustrated his peers by paying huge multiples. Assets that once traded at 10 or 12 times their NPS (or net publisher share) are already trading for 20 times, if not more. New players that have aggregated thousands of copyrights must now figure out what to do with them.
