"It’s quite interesting that while the overall pie is growing, and more and more people can partake in that pie, we tend to focus on a very limited set of artists," Ek said. "Even today on our marketplace, there’s literally millions and millions of artists. What tends to be reported are the people that are unhappy."

He continued: "... In the entire existence [of Spotify] I don’t think I’ve ever seen a single artist [publicly say] 'I’m happy with all the money I’m getting from streaming' ... In private, they have done that many times, but in public they have no incentive to do it. But unequivocally, from the data, there are more and more artists that are able to live off streaming income in itself."

"... You can’t record music once every three to four years and think that’s going to be enough," Ek said. "The artists today that are making it realise that it’s about creating a continuous engagement with their fans. It is about putting the work in, about the storytelling around the album, and about keeping a continuous dialogue with your fans."

It’s a good thing Gaga has her heart set out on other things  

Just say you want artists to release more often so that people stream more often and you make more money and GO

Good thing Gaga DOES release that often. TF- 2008 TFM-2009 BTW-2011 AP-2013 C2C—2014 J-2016 ASIB-2018 Chromatica-2020   Don't act like she doesn’t wor

Really hoping Gaga will release a Chromatica Re-Release and a song for promoting a Gucci film soundtrack before LG7, she needs to keep her slowly but steadily increasing streaming power

"will struggle"

As in charts? What about all of those artists who don't care?

i think he means they'll struggle to make a decent profit off of streaming
