Apple Music Says They Pay a Penny Per Stream on Average to Artists & Labels

Apple recently released a letter on their artist dashboard where they spoke about the money they pay out to artists and labels, saying they believe in "the value of music and paying creators fairly for their work."
Apple went on to say, "While royalties from streaming services are calculated on a stream share basis, a play still has a value. This value varies by subscription plan and country but averaged $0.01 for Apple Music individual paid plans in 2020. This includes label and publisher royalties." Apple Music also said they pay out the same 52 recent headline rate to all labels, as well as paying the same headline rate for all compositions. The company also said they don't pay a lower royalty rate in exchange for featuring.
The Union of Musicians and Allied Workers spoke on the reveal by Apple while calling out other streaming platforms for their lack of transparency. The union said, "If Apple can pay a penny per stream, then Spotify can too. We also know that paying a penny per stream is only a starting point to righting the wrong of the streaming economy. This adjustment alone will not make the music industry sufficiently equitable or fair."
In another tweet by the Union, they said Apple Music's methods for payouts to artists and labels are "doable for streaming companies, including Spotify, which currently averages $0.0038 per stream.

Chris Cuomo Says Reform Won't Happen Until Police Kill "White People's Kids

During an appearance he made on CNN, Chris Cuomo spoke about the current policing methods used on citizens in the U.S. and also spoke on the reform that needs to take place. Cuomo delivered some criticism on policing that ultimately went viral, with the show host asking if reform would even be questioned if the victims of police shootings were the children of white people.
Cuomo said, "How many more? Die of the pandemic, dying from police shootings. George Floyd, Daunte Wright. I wonder if you'll remember their names six months from now because they'll be replaced by so many others."
Cuomo went on to say, "Forget that police are trained to deal with non-compliance with force that is not lethal. Hey, comply or die. And you know what the answer is. You really do. You don't like it, I don't like it, it scares me. Shootings, gun laws, access to weapons. Oh, I know when they'll change. Your kids start getting killed, white people's kids start getting killed."
Cuomo then took a moment to shift his attention to a confused white parent, who he imitated and said: "What's going on with these police? Maybe we shouldn't even have police," he said. Cuomo continued saying, "That kind of madness. That kind of mania. That will be you. That will be the majority. Because it's your people.
