Yoe Mase is an artist to watch in 2018. I have been listening to Yoe Mase new album (Life in Boxes) since April and it is amazing. The album was premiered on YouTube on the MrSuicideSheep channel and it been a really big hit with over 650,000 plays (when writing this).
How do artists make money on YouTube? For starters, by putting music on YouTube for free with a digital music distributor.
In great news for artists, labels and streamers, Twitch is apparently nearing a licensing deal with NMPA to pay artists for music on Twitch streams.
