artist revenue: label vs. DIY artist

click to enlarge / source hypebot.com

hypebot published this dataviz which displays the different revenues an artist generates by selling his music via a label or in DIY style. And it’s quite shocking! If this numbers only get close to reality it wouldn’t make sense at all to get signed by a label.

Unfortunately I couldn’t verify the data nor find the actual source of this dataviz, so take it as input for debate rather than fact.
