Key Drivers

Streaming. These royalties are driven by streaming sources like Pandora, Spotify, and Apple Music. Over 93% of royalties earned by this catalog are coming directly from streaming.

This catalog’s highest earner “Better Days” claims impressive YouTube activity with nearly 1 million plays, and over 6.9 million streams on Spotify. The track “Slow Down” falls close behind with over half a million YouTube and 5 million Spotify plays. Meekins commands over 340,000 monthly listeners on Spotify.

His tracks are placed on a variety of Spotify curated playlists, including “The Sound of Pop Rap” which currently stands at over 12,000 followers. This is good news for you, as this exposes his music to new listeners and potential new fans.
