SoundCloud Boosts Program for Helping Artists Monetize Directly

In an era where streaming services have unprecedented power to steer an artist to success, SoundCloud is planting its flag deeper as a “creator forward” platform. Today, it announces an expansion of its SoundCloud Premier program, a direct monetization platform aimed at making it easier for fans to support artists and empower its musician users. After initially testing SoundCloud Premier with a select pool of artists, the service will now be more broadly available. To start, artists will need to have at least 5,000 plays in the past month, and the program will be limited to countries where both advertising and SoundCloud’s subscription branch, SoundCloud Pro, are available.
