Taylor Swift’s record name has denied Spotify’s claims that the vocalist was “on track” to make $6m (£3.8m) a year from the music streaming administration.
Actually, Swift earned $496,044 (£317,000) in the previous 12 months for streams of her melodies in the US, Big Machine CEO Scott Borchetta said.
Borchetta read a clock magazine his name had made more from feature streaming site Vevo than from Spotify.
Spotify hit back, saying Swift’s worldwide profit were closer to $2m (£1.2m).
“The more we develop, the more we pay craftsmen, and we’re developing like insane,” Spotify’s worldwide head of correspondences Jonathan Prince said.

On Tuesday, Spotify’s CEO protected its plan of action, saying it had paid $2bn (£1.2bn) to the music business to date.
“Taylor Swift is totally right: music is craftsmanship, workmanship has genuine worth, and specialists should be paid for it,” Ek wrote in a site.
He contended that Spotify secured craftsmen against unlawful downloading, composition: “Robbery doesn’t pay specialists a penny – nothing, nothing, zero.
“What’s more certain enough, in the event that you took a gander at the top spot on the Pirate Bay a week ago, there was 1989.”
He included: “At our current size, payouts for a top craftsman like Taylor Swift (before she pulled her index) are on track to surpass $6m a year, and that is just developing – we anticipate that that number will twofold again in a year.”
Anyhow Borchetta negated those figures, saying the choice to expel Swift’s music from the administration was making a bigger point.
“The actualities demonstrate that the music business was much better off before Spotify hit these shores,” he read a clock.
“Keep in mind this is for the best craftsman in music today. Shouldn’t something be said about whatever remains of the craftsmen out there attempting to make a profession? Throughout the most recent year, what Spotify has paid is what might as well be called short of what 50,000 collections sold.”
