How music is monetized in VK

Listening of releases uploaded to the platform and user downloads equated to them are monetized in favour of copyright holders. The more premium access holders on the platform, the more royalty performers ultimately receive for their music. Listening of users without premium access who listen to music with ads is also monetized. 

Unfortunately, we cannot disclose the exact figures of your payments for streams — they depend on the contract with your label or distributor and are a trade secret. You can always find out the approximate order of payments by studying the report from the label or distributor.
