[Reader’s POV]


    Walking past the drive in you see a group of bikers chilling and talking. Your phone was telling you which way to go to school. The gravel crumbling underneath your combat boots as you walked. Turning your head to the side to check the street before walking across it. Retying the flannel around your hips you see more students pass by.


“She looks like she was spit out of a tumblr ad..”


“I heard that’s the new girl, she’s from the berkshires apparently from Williamstown..I hear she killed her pare-”


“Hey want to know something?” you ask the Ruby haired girl with spider leg like lashes. Her eyes narrow into slits at you scanning your appearance. The look of disgust was splashed on her pale face.

Hi Cris, what are the benefits of signing a full record deal as opposed to a distribution deal? If the distribution deal is much better money wise, why doesn't everyone do it? Someone told me major labels push their own artists harder than their distribution deal artists. Is that true? Like, Adele and Beyonce have full record deals with Columbia, right?

Distribution deals are really only beneficial for major artists that have already gone through the standard record deal grind and have an established fan base that they can count on to buy a certain number of copies of their records.  

And if you recall, Capitol pushed Niall like he was the literal fruit of their loins for This Town, so the question of who they push harder isn’t the issue.  The issue is who do they think is going to make them the most money?

A distribution deal means that Capitol put very little money on the table up front to get Niall to sign with them. So they don’t have to worry about recouping anything other than marketing costs. But it’s good for the artist, because they retain rights to their masters and make money on every unit sold and don’t have to worry so much about the label using creative accounting. The artist is effectively hiring the big label to promote them for a percentage of sales, very cut and dry (for the most part).

At the same time, the big label gets to claim the artist and has bragging rights when they have a hit, which matters more than you’d think in the industry.

A normal record deal with an established, top level artist is set up so that the label has to give them a big chunk of money up front (usually millions) and then bet on whether the artist will sell enough for them to recoup the advance. Then after the advance has been paid back, the artist begins making additional money (or more specifically, after the advance and all recording, marketing, administrative, and bullshit costs are deducted).

As for Adele and Beyonce, nope.  

Beyonce has the same kind of deal that Niall does, it looks like (this is for Lemonade):

And Adele’s deal is actually with XL, her original label:

Sasuke blinks down at the book in his lap with weary, lagging attention. Beside him sits a few stacks of papers, carefully organized into differing categories. For example; which classes, what was edited or unedited, things like that help Sasuke keep track of the never-ending torrent of class work that gets dumped on him. He supposes it’s his own fault for choosing such a difficult major in the first place, but still, he can always internally fantasize about leniency. At least he isn’t like his blond roommate, who waits until the last moment to do everything; no, Sasuke prefers to work ahead so that he’s always a step above the teachers. Who knows when something may come up and disrupt the workflow? Sasuke just likes to be prepared. Or, as Naruto calls it, being an “uptight, paranoid workaholic.” 

Better than being a lazy, carefree ramenholic. 

The scrape of Sasuke’s pen on paper is about as loud as a drill at this point in the night. It’s not that late, he can finish this last essay and then just drink a cup or four of coffee to be ready for class. Steeling himself to churn out the concluding paragraph, Sasuke pauses when he hears a door down the hall open. Footsteps pad towards his direction and Sasuke looks up just in time to catch the surprised eyes of Naruto, whose blond hair is a wreck from sleep.  “Wow,” the blond raises his eyebrows in surprise, “you’re up really early! It’s like five in the morning.” 

Sasuke blinks owlishly and cuts his eyes to look at the time on his laptop, then looks back up at Naruto with the same bewildered expression. Naruto narrows his eyes at the lack of a response, folding his arms across his chest like he’s getting ready to lecture a child. “You haven’t even been to sleep, have you?” He demands. When Sasuke merely shrugs his shoulders, Naruto shakes his head in frustration. “What are you even doing, you’ve got to be weeks ahead already. What are you trying to do, write the next curriculum before the teachers can?” Naruto approaches Sasuke and snaps the laptop shut, giving Sasuke only seconds to yank his hands away before he loses his fingers. 

“I’m almost done, I’ll get some sleep after I finish.” The Uchiha snaps, unaware of how dry his voice sounds. Naruto rolls his eyes, not falling for the excuse at all. 

“Right, just like you said the last twelve times. What’s with you, anyway? Do you even sleep? What if all of this catches up with you when you’re, like, an old guy and you’re just passing out every fifteen minutes and snoring like a tractor?” Naruto waves his hands around wildly, reminding Sasuke a bit of the overenthusiastic theater kids. Maybe Naruto was taking drama lessons from Ino. “You know, in college, you pull all-nighters, not all-weekers.” 

Sasuke groans, leaning to the side so that he may rest his head on the arm of the couch. “It’s called being prepared and organized, dobe. Would you rather I leave all of my work until the night before its due date, then rush to get everything done, all the while I’m chugging some sort of godawful energy drink?” Honestly, Sasuke doesn’t see how Naruto’s heart hasn’t burst from consuming all those energy drinks. 

Naruto huffs in indignance and storms into the kitchen, flipping open cabinets to look for the coffee. “At least I’m not a walking zombie. I know how to balance a sleep schedule, something you never learned. Maybe I should knock you out at night, then tuck you in really tight so you can’t get out of bed. “ Naruto grumbles his ideas, awaiting an irate scoff from Sasuke, but he hears nothing after a few seconds. Confused, Naruto glances over his shoulder to find why Sasuke isn’t answering him, only to see the Uchiha conked out with his head on the armrest of the couch. Naruto groans and slaps his forehead, debating waking Sasuke up to continue the lecture, but the blond doesn’t have the heart. 

Walking over to the couch, Naruto picks Sasuke up to carry him to his bed. It was only four-fifteen now, Sasuke could get a solid six hours before class. Carefully setting Sasuke in bed and tugging the blanket over him, Naruto glowers down at the sleeping face of his best friend. “Stupid, stubborn teme.” Naruto mutters under his breath, feeling much like a worrisome mother hen at this point. He watches Sasuke curl up in the blanket, looking far too cute for someone who was in so much trouble. Naruto smiles in spite of himself, leans down, and presses a faint kiss to Sasuke’s forehead. 

Maybe next time I’ll just tie him to the bed.

Hi! If this is a distribution deal, does it mean that the 80 millions deal for 3 albums is bs?

The 80 million deal has always been bullshit.

BUT!  With a distribution/marketing deal, if Columbia gave Harry some money up front (which they probably did, but like $5 million or so) and then he gets even a relatively small percentage of sales from 3 albums (without the creative accounting that record labels normally use), plus he gets to keep a much larger percentage of touring and merch profits, it could reach $80 million if the albums are all massive hits (which they all will be).

So it’s just spin really. Saying “a deal worth $80 million” means over the entire term of the deal IF things go really, really well. It never, ever meant that he was given a check in that amount.

oh wow thanks for almost 7.2k !!! holy shit that’s a lot of people thank you so much. i don’t even know how i have that much considering im really inactive and im sorry about that. school is a pain and my other two voltron accounts that i own on instagram are a pain as well. ill try to be more active. thank you so much again i cannot express my gratitude enough !! i honestly don’t deserve this one bit but i love you guys and tysm !! ♡

I could have easily finished a painting last night but didn’t…I’m not sad because I picked up guitar for the first time in at least a month and remembered a lot of odds and ends I’d been working on (despite the fact that my voice memos mysteriously vanished from my phone)! not bad Dust

Do you think it would be possible for dragons to practice some form of martial art (besides clawing and biting like animals)? What kind of training would they undergo to join an organized military?

Bina:

Assuming dragons in your setting are sentient on about the same levels as humans (I think they are, since you asked if they could ‘practice’ it), definitely! Martial arts encompasses using your own body as a weapon and having the mental fortitude to stick to the proper techniques. A dragon certainly has plenty of body to use in unique and devastating ways. Of course, this depends on the type of dragon you have, but for example, tail-sweeping and lashing techniques, using wings to hide your moves from your opponent’s sight or as a physical block, using more heavily-armored parts of the body to block or cover for riskier moves, etc. 

 To me, as long as your dragons are capable of memorizing actions, have the creativity and smarts to chain existing actions effectively and (potentially) develop new techniques, and have the situational awareness needed to apply the appropriate techniques (ex, don’t punch when you need to duck), they’re set. As for the training, it depends. Are the dragons training themselves with a martial art developed by themselves? Or are they being taught human martial arts, adapted for their different bodies? If it’s the former, I’d say that they already undergo their own training, and the military would evaluate these skills to see if it’s suited for military use, and then allow the dragons to join. If it’s the latter, then the training they would undergo would be the same as all new recruits. With, perhaps, a highly specialized, creative instructor to account for their different bodies and make the best use of their draconic features. 

If the military doesn’t train their own recruits, the dragons would have to find a human instructor willing to teach them, and /then/ do the demonstration to the military that they’re capable of contributing and worthy of recruitment.For a bit of existing inspiration on this, the show Avatar: The Last Airbender has huge eastern-style dragons whose innate motions inspired a branch of firebending martial art. Humans adapted the dragon’s motions into something more suitable for their own bodies and capabilities.

I hope you'll have a minute to answer this. How do distribution or licensing deals work. If Harry owns the masters (thru Erskine) and he owns publishing rights to his songs (HS Publishing or something like that), how does Columbia get paid? Is it like a percentage of sales and streams? Merchandise and tour (but he also has a touring co.) I realize that the 3 album deal is not equal to 3 years, but /if/ $80m is true, then how do they make back that much $ if Harry retains so much control? Tx!

The $80 million isn’t true. Full stop. Not true.

As to the rest of it, if Harry owns the masters, Columbia makes money by taking a percentage of all sales, streaming, touring, and merchandising. But in this kind of deal, they take a simple percentage, not earnings less “creative accounting” divided by “shady shit” minus “a number pulled out of their asses” like a regular record deal.

It’s probably 40-50% of his revenue, but still much simpler math and much more lucrative in the long run for an artist that is established and all but guaranteed to do really well. And they’ll do that because they aren’t investing a lot of money in a new artist that’s hit or miss. Someone starting out usually doesn’t get that kind of deal.
