    This is weird, I always thought that streaming was actually good for artists? Certain rappers in Holand have become millionaires because of streaming if I understood correctly.

    It is if their music is streamed a lot, otherwise no so much, due to small amount paid per stream.

    OK, so probably that's why some of them became millionair, because I was talking about the most famous rappers. So yes, this must be changed, more money must go the musicians.
