Streaming Masters – Sia

Sia

After a pretty discreet beginning of career, Sia has had a lot of hits since the explosion of Chandelier. How does this translate on streaming platforms?

Announcement

CSPC articles require time to compile. It may be frustrating to wait for them too long, especially when various new artists, and even more and more catalog acts, enjoy the large majority of their sales through streaming only these days. To make sure to provide you much more frequent updates, we are going to publish Streaming Masters sheets from now on, detailing the complete streaming section of artists.

Method

As detailed in the Fixing Log articleSpotify represents 157 million of the 272 million users of streaming platforms, while YouTube is pretty much the only video platform generating some revenue for the industry. Below is the equivalence set on the aforementioned article:

Audio Stream – 1500 plays equal 1 album unit
Video Stream – 11,750 views equal 1 album unit

Equivalent Albums Sales (EAS) = 272/157 * Spotify streams / 1500 + YouTube views / 11750
