Figures show that U.K. artists are earning double now-a-days. According to the PRS for music, royalties collected from British songwriters and composers. This is largely due to Adele's success. The boom was also aided by popular artists like Rihanna and Nicki Minaj hiring British songwriters like Calvin Harris and Fraser T Smith. Live concerts incomes skyrocketed as well, due to sold out concerts from Muse, The Rolling Stones and Stone Roses.
