Get On The Tour Bu$! 🚌 Recording artists received just a mere 12% of the $43 billion that the music industry generated in 2017, according to a Citicorp report. $43 billion matches a 12-year peak that the industry hasn't hit since 2006, the report said.
The proportion of the total music industry revenue artists are capturing has actually risen since 2000, when artists took home only a 7% share of the revenue.
But this increase is due in large part to the growth of concerts and touring as a revenue stream that is largely distinct from the intermediary of their music labels. Artists are still taking home a meager share of the increasing revenues in streaming for their music, where music labels and music streaming services act as intermediaries.
The report anticipates (and is likely to spur calls for more) "organic forms of vertical integration" in the industry, where existing music providers like Spotify and Apple Music could "organically morph into music labels," allowing artists to capture more of their music's value by releasing their work directly with the services.

Why sooooo serious Uncle Richard? 😐Yucky! I h*te having my photo taken. 😝 Here I was, minding my own business, getting in a little wrench-time on my project (a 1971 Chevy C10, 350 V8, dropped five in the back, m*rdered-out, HB 🌊🤙🏼-style), WHEN some 10 year old-bossy, iPhone carrying + flip flop wearing-🐥, named AVA, decided NOW was a good time to take Uncle's photo for her school project! My niece AVA is also my 🛠 "Wrench-Passer" and future-loud 👄-publicist! 😆BTW, as a kid, like my Papa Richard, my t-shirt was ALWAYS spotless, Levi's + Van's clean and hands, my hands were always greasy as all heck. HA! 😆 RL3🦁🎭🤘🏼😜 #NATIVE
