Dance Music Singers Don’t Get Paid

Dance Music Singers Don’t Get Paid

The artists who have sung on, and in most cases co-written, club anthems complaint that they don’t get paid for their work. For example, CoCo Star, EDM singer-songwriter, claimed she wasn’t even paid for the use of her vocals on a track.

Today DJs are making a killing, because electronic dance music became one of the most lucrative sectors of the industry. The most popular DJs can demand $80,000 to $150,000 for a gig, while having no overheads, unlike touring rock acts. A shameful fact of the industry is that women writing the melodies and lyrics to the dance hits rarely get paid for their work.

A few decades ago, Milli Vanilli and C+C Music Factory were involved in a scandal when it turned out that the vocalists fronting the acts were just lip-synching to other singers’ vocals. At the time, the actual singer of C+C Music Factory’s Gonna Make You Sweat even sued the label, Milli Vanilli had to hand back their Grammy, and the United States was forced to introduce rules making it mandatory to credit correct vocals on CDs and videos, in the aftermath.

However, little has changed for EDM acts since then. In fact, the featured singers on most club hits, most of whom have also written the melody and lyrics, are sometimes replaced by someone else for videos and tours, while seeing no royalties at all. One of such artists, Antonia Lucas, feeling disrespected by club music producers, has set up the Vocalist Songwriters Alliance (VSA). Back in 2012, she started a Facebook group for singer-songwriters in the sector, and just a few days later the group had over sixty members, all describing similar experiences. At the moment, the VSA has 300 members, including artist and songwriter CoCo Star (real name Susan Brice), known for singing a club hit “I Need a Miracle”. Since 1996, the track was used many times and became number one in many countries, but all Brice received was $300 for over 3 million copies sold by Universal Music Group. In response, its spokesperson said that there was a long chain of contracts behind this, which they were looking into, so they refused to comment until they’ve got to the bottom of it.

In short words, all VSA members have reported not receiving royalty statements from the music labels that sold their works, and being “stonewalled” when challenging them on it. The artists admit that such kind of behavior can break down the individual, with many members considering leaving the industry before finding out that they were not alone. So, it’s not always file-sharers who deprive content creators of their hard-earned money.

hubsabubs avatarWow, and they bitch about someone downloading music or selling bootleg cds and then want to prosecute and throw'em under the jail. When in fact even the system itself screws'em out of their money. A double standard in the entertainment industry. Shameful..
