    The Needle Drop/Anthony Fantano did a nice video talking through this particular analysis. While Napster pays the most, almost nobody uses it. While YouTube pays the least, almost everyone uses it. If a musician has any thought of making a living from music streaming then

    a) They need a reality check, streaming doesn't even pay minimum wage unless you're already a well established artist. Go play live and sell merch if you want actual money.
    b) They need to put all their music on all of these services.

Have you ever experienced racism/sexism at uni?
