More details emerge on ‘All About That Bass’ streaming payouts

Yesterday, we reported on the claim by ‘All About That Bass’ co-writer Kevin Kadish that the song’s 178m streams had earned him $5,679 – and we wondered what digital service those streams were on. Overnight, a spokesperson from ASCAP, of which Kadish is a member, got in touch with the details.

The figures were specifically for performance royalties from Pandora, so did not include the track’s 290m streams on Spotify or the 1bn+ streams of its official video on YouTube.
