Have you ever wondered why record companies spend tons of money for radio BDS “spins”? The answer is very simple, after your song has been performed 95,000 times on radio it then qualifies for the HIT SONG BONUS or an increase in the amount of money you can receive. Songs that have been performed 2.5 million times and receive at least 15,000 BDS recorded performances per quarter (3 months) are considered STANDARDS and are eligible to receive an additional bonus.
There are additional bonus rates paid for radio performances that are featured as Radio Theme songs.
TELEVISION – A song you wrote played on US Television can be a significant money maker, especially if it is played more than 45 seconds and is one of these.
VISUAL VOCAL – the vocalist is on camera doing your song
