There's hardly any money in the music business for artists unless they write/produce their own songs. Obviously there's ticket sales, merchandise, commercials etc, but the actual artist comes out with very little in the end.

I remember an interview with someone out of S Club 7, who were huuuuge at the time, and had constant tours/clothing ranges/dolls/tv shows and they said they had only earned 7,000 during their entire time in the band.
Yep. If you write (or even co-write) a song and it's a hit. That's where the money is. Think Alanis Morissette only 1 album was massive but because she co-wrote the whole of Jagged Little Pill, the cheques keep coming.
