According to earnings calculation, Tones and I has pulled in a simply massive $3 Million in Spotify revenue alone. The year has been simply huge for the artist and we couldn’t be more proud of her.

Tones and I has recently posted her Spotify for Artists calculations to her Instagram, and they reveal some pretty impressive stats. According to the post, Tones had a whopping 48 Million listeners in the year of 2019 alone. That makes a total of 24.9 Million hours of people listening to her music, which is insane when you really think of it. That’s 2842 years of listening to nothing but Tones and I straight.

Across 79 countries, Toni Watson has spread her wings, and has earnt herself a well-deserved 482.5 Million streams. If you put that total amount of streams into a fun little converter, that means that Tones and I has earnt a total of AUD $3,082,354.96 from Spotify revenue alone. 

Now we know that Spotify and other streaming services have been under scrutiny in the past for how they pay their artists, but things are getting way better for artists in the realm of streaming.

Now, this figure of earnings doesn’t even take into account any other sales, Apple Music or YouTube revenue, it’s only Spotify, which let’s be real, is crazy. Realistically Tones would be likely earning double that figure when you take into account sales and all the other streaming services.

Also important to keep in mind is that this figure doesn’t actually mean she will pocket the full $2mil as she needs to pay her label, which could be anywhere from 20% to 70% of that revenue depending on her deal. After her label takes their cut, she will then still need to pay her manager 20% from the remaining revenue. So yeah, she has a lot less in her pocket, but it’s still a lot of money, and we have no choice but to stan for life. Well done Tones.
