Streaming Masters – Paul McCartney

Paul McCartney

Expectedly, streaming numbers of the Beatles are impressive. Paul McCartney released 25 studio albums plus classical material since then, including an album which came out during the streaming era. Is that enough to challenge results of the fab four with his own catalog?

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:

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

Jules Giddings

Four five seconds was only streamed so much because of Rihanna and Kanye West, their fans generally stream their music because of their demographic. If it was Macca by himself the song would be nothing like what it is. As a solo artist PMs material is solid but fairly predictable. He will always be remembered as a Beatle despite having sold a huge amount of records as a solo artist and with The Wings.
