Travis Scott’s career
Travis Scott was fascinated by music from an early age. At that time he had already brought the first publications onto the market. For example an e EP with the help of a friend called Graduates in 2009. Two self-produced albums with OG Chess followed later. After leaving college, he separated from his student fraternities and made his way to Los Angeles. His goal: the breakthrough.
With ambition he made it to Kanye West and TI, both of which ran their own labels. The releases also featured other members of the label, including Jay-Z. Above all, as a producer, he was able to integrate into the label, which resulted in collaborations with Rihanna (title: B*tch Better Have My Money) . Some collaborations with Drake also followed later .
He released his own mixtape in 2012 entitled Owl Pharaoh . His work was nominated for Best Mixtape of the Year at the BET Hip Hop Awards . The single Echelon (feat. 2 Chainz) was released as a separate single and thus he made his first place in the rap charts.
Travis Scott first landed at number 1 with his debut album Rodeo . The single Antidote made it to the top 20 on the US charts and later went platinum. Other collaborations later followed with Wiz Khalifa , Justin Bieber and many more. He’s now twice platinum and once triple platinum in the US from his three studio albums alone. A total of over 5.5 million units were sold.
Cash flow from music streaming
Without a doubt, Travis Scott is one of the main beneficiaries in the streaming market . Rap generally appeals to a younger target group and only younger people actually hear a lot about Spotify, Amazon Prime Music, Apple Music and Co.
Travis Scott has over 39 million listeners on Spotify alone . Unfortunately, other platforms do not publish any figures on this, but the statistics from Spotify are quite meaningful, since Spotify is the world market leader in music streaming. According to current statements, an artist earns just under 4,000 euros with one million streams. We use this number to determine the estimated sales figures (only on Spotify). The total earnings on Spotify of over 35 million euros contribute to a gigantic fortune.
The five most successful songs on Spotify:
- SICKO MODE with 1.256 billion streams; Estimated turnover: 5 million euros
- Goosebumps with 1.130 billion streams; Estimated turnover: 4.5 million euros
- HIGHEST IN THE ROOM with 731 million streams; Estimated turnover: 2.9 million euros
- ZEZE with 515 million streams; Estimated turnover: 2 million euros
- BUTTERFLY EFFECT with 503 million streams; Estimated turnover: just under 2 million euros
Income from documentary film
Travis Scott: Look Mom I Can Fly is a documentary film directed by White Trash Tyler. The film, which was also produced by Travis Scott himself, was released in 2019. It is about the artist’s advertising and stretches from his beginnings to his third studio album ASTROWORLD. The documentary was released on August 28, 2019 on Netflix, whose production company also made the film.
There are therefore no sales figures or cinema charts, since Netflix is a streaming service and does not publish any numbers or anything else. However , Travis Scott may have received a few million euros from Netflix and at the same time investments were made in the artist’s image. More people than ever could have become aware of Travis Scott, which would have indirectly helped him earn money through the film.
Merchandising as another source of income
Since music can hardly be sold in stores anymore, more and more artists (or their labels) are turning to online sales channels . New albums or mixtapes are offered separately as a physical version and sometimes also as vinyl via a dedicated shop. This goes down well with fans who collect all of the artist’s products.
Travis Scott also has his own shop, but this has a constantly changing range. You can currently find individual rims for several thousand euros as well as a car as an auction. The current mixtape is also available on vinyl, cassette, CD and as a “digital pack” (music download). Travis Scott also has its own range of clothing, both on Farfetch and on Amazon. At over 100 euros for a hoodie from the ASTROWORLD album, the products are correspondingly expensive.
Fees for performances
His fee per tour appearance is 90,000 euros . A total of 10 tour appearances are announced for 2020, which would earn him 900,000 euros. His tours take place not only in the USA, but also in Poland, Chile, Argentina and Brazil.
Participation in the YouTube Partner Program
Of course, like every artist, Travis Scott also has his own YouTube channel. This is also very successful with over seven million subscribers. However, his number of clicks per month are relatively low. In January 2020, for example, there were only 240,000 clicks. However, during a promotional phase, as was the case in August 2018, this number can also rise to almost a million. According to Social Blade, YouTube earnings are estimated at just 1,000 euros per month .
