LONDON, April 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
New website WhatTheArtistGot.com has revealed the top 10 songs that made the most revenue via digital downloads from 2002-2013, Ke$ha's Tik Tok, Black Eyed Peas' I Gotta Feeling and Adele's Rolling in the Deep taking the top spots.
Tik Tok and I Gotta Feeling beat revenues from the likes of Adele and Lady Gaga; selling near 15million digital copies respectively, both track's estimated revenue is £11,900,000.
However, calculations based on the conventional record industry model indicate that Ke$ha and Black Eyed Peas could have earned less than a fifteenth of this figure in royalties (£796,000).
If they had employed the Songeist model, with a flat fee of only 12p per track downloaded, they would have taken home £6million - more than seven times what the royalties for their songs accrued.
Top 10 songs that made the most revenue via digital downloads from 2002-2013:

WhatTheArtistGot.com allows fans to search through some of the most popular downloaded tracks of all time and discover the average cost for artists doing business through a traditional major record label, versus what they could have earned if they sold the track DIY through a platform such as Songeist.
The microsite empowers fans to give more of the money they spend on downloads to the musicians they love.
Last year saw global digital revenues grow by 4.3% on the previous year, to $5.9 billion* highlighting the digital channel as a key revenue stream.
Mark Pattison, Marketing Manager at Songeist comments, "The music industry is changing. Songeist believes that more and more artists will see a DIY approach as a viable alternative to the major label system. WhatTheArtistGot.com represents the core ethos of our business and conveys it to music fans in a clear, informative and engaging way".
Songeist is a new platform dedicated to supporting emerging music from around the globe. The site allows you to discover, share and download the best up-and-coming artists before you've heard them anywhere else.

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...

See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in product and marketing at Tintri, will discu...
