Like it or not, a lot of people get into the rap game because they’re looking for a viral hit and a quick check. Looking at the latest song revenue chart from Hits Daily Double, if you were lucky enough to have a top 10 hip-hop song over the past seven days, your latest work generated an average of $131,000 in total song revenue.
Now, it’s important to understand that you will not be taking home $131,000, or close to it. This figure is simply the average revenue generated by this past week’s top 10 rap songs, including both streaming and pure sales figures.
Per usual, hip-hop makes up most (seven out of the top 10) of the highest-earning songs of the week, with rap comprising the top four, only to be shut out by Ariana Grande and Maroon 5. 6ix9ine and Nicki Minaj's "FEFE" takes the top spot at $184,744 in total revenue over the last seven days, followed by Travis Scott's "SICKO MODE" ($183,488), Drake's "In My Feelings" ($174,041), and Juice WRLD's "Lucid Dreams" ($143,956). Lil Baby and Drake's "Yes Indeed" ($90,451) rounds out hip-hop's top 10 (No. 13 overall).
So, if you want your songs to make hundreds of thousands of dollars per week as a rapper, all you have to do is make a song as well-produced, infectious, and well-marketed as Travis Scott, Drake, Lil Baby, Cardi B, or Juice WRLD.
Seems simple enough, right?
