Both TSwift's Team & Spotify Give Payout Figures for Streams



The Tswift/Spotify battle continues, with new claims regarding her earnings for the past year emerging.

Scott Borchetta, the CEO of Taylor Swift's record label Big Machine, says that Taylor Swift earned just $496,044 from Spotify for the last 12 months of streaming. A Spotify rep, on the other hand, says she received $2 million.

This comes after Spotify's CEO, Daniel Ek, claimed Swift likely would have pocketed $6 million from the service had her catalog remained available to users.

EDIT: As thatjulyninth points out, other sites state that the $496k figure given by Big Machine is for domestic streaming, while the $2mil figure given by Spotify is global.
