Since Spotify is a music streaming service, every song streamed for over 30 seconds counts as a play - which is then converted into a royalty payment. If you are an artist on Spotify, or interested in becoming one, I highly recommend you check out their FAQ for Artists.
Hope this helps and have an amazing day! :D
