That mark just means that their personal profile has been linked with their artist profile and verified - this means they can post as the artist, and not as a user.

It´s also an indicator of artist not to follow if you dont want advertising from the record company in your activity feed. John Lennon is sadly to say, dead, since 1980.

From https://www.spotify.com/about-us/artists/engage-with-fans/playlisting/ by the looks of things. I just remember the page from when Matt was talking about it a while back!
