As many of you already know, the artists that we love to listen to get paid diddly-squat (very little) from streaming through Spotify. It is one of my biggest gripes as a musician myself. But the Spotify collection is just so dang diverse that being without it seems painful.
So my proposition is this:
Allow Premium users to elect to pay a higher monthly cost, starting at $10.99 on up, and have an in-app cue of artists (of the user's choice) that they wish to support. Each month, the $9.99 goes to Spotify & the extra money they pay goes to the artist of their choosing. Allowing the user to build a cue of artists that they wish to support allows the wealth of the Spotify community to be dispersed among the artists (or just one artist if they only want to support one). It seems like a pretty simple way to keep the artists happier and help Spotify be an even better hub for such a diverse array of music.
