I just learned that Apple Music pays artists 1 cent (75 Indian paise) for one stream / one audience listens to your song for a single time.
So if you want to earn $1 (75 INR), the artist should have 100 plays/views by his user/audience.
So to earn a living out of it, say $1,000 (75,000 INR) per month, a regular artist should have 1,00,000 plays of the song.
But I don’t know what a typical artist’s analytics of his monthly music plays by his audience is. So in the world of Apple Music, it is hard to earn a living, but it is an excellent opportunity for an artist to sell Audio CDs or Digital Albums online.
