Distrokid offers musicians and other rights-holders the opportunity to distribute and sell or stream their music through online music streaming services such as Apple Music, Spotify, Pandora, Tidal, Deezer, Iheartradio, Napster and a host of many more streaming service. On Feb. 2, 2023 Distrokid released royalties for Napster, one of the highest paying services according to the most research on streaming service via Google search.

Twitter reacts to this news on Twitter account @DistrokidR who reports when royalties are paid via Distokid.
