    Turns out it's Napster followed by TIDAL and Apple Music.
    YouTube pays artists the least.

    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.
