Regarding YouTube video monetization

Money from youtube video monetization is not that great. If, based on the article below, we take an average of 3.5 USD per thousand views that gives us 3,500 USD per million views.

Major music stars do not have more than an average of 50 million views per major hit. So someone like that would have earned about 200K USD over years of the hit being on youtube. That is not much considering the popularity of the media.

So, what are the chances of making significant money out of youtube as an individual video producer/uploader? Slim, very slim I would say.
