Joe Rogan and Spotify struck a deal in 2020, where Rogan agreed to exclusively host his podcasts on their platform for a massive $200 million. As the deal is set to end soon, it appears that the music-streaming giant had no choice but to renew the contract and grant Rogan additional exclusive rights. All in all, it seems that Rogan has successfully negotiated and outplayed the music streaming app.

The multi-million dollar podcast was gathering a massive 1.9 million views per episode. The contract has given Rogan the immunity to continue his reign with the entity for the coming years. Now, Rogan has revealed the future of his platform in a recent social media post.

It finally happened. Joe Rogan and Spotify have finally struck a deal. Spotify has renewed his contract for 4 years and the new contract is now worth 250 million dollars. There is a significant increase of 5o million dollars more than what it was worth four years ago. As mentioned above, Spotify and Rogan clinched a contract in 2020.

The terms of the old contract stipulated that Rogan would exclusively host his podcast episodes on Spotify. However, under the new contract, Rogan now has the flexibility to extend the presence of his podcast to other platforms such as Apple, Amazon, and YouTube.

Spotify acknowledged the new deal through a blog post, yet, maintained a silence over the financial numbers of the deal. As of now, it is uncertain whether the other companies are paying Rogan for his podcasts or not but one thing is for sure, and it’s that the podcaster will remain at the top charts for a long time.
