Episode Info

Episode Info: Highlights  Spotify, Apple Music, and Deezer’s biggest playlists are growing — both in terms of follower count and also track count — but what does that mean for artists looking to land a big add? Mission   Good morning, it’s Rutger here at Chartmetric with your 3-minute Data Dump where we upload charts, artists and playlists into your brain so you can stay up on the latest in the music data world. We’re on the socials at “chartmetric”, that’s Chartmetric, no “S ”- follow us on LinkedIn, Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook, and talk to us! We’d love to hear from you. Feature: Labels PageHey Rutger, it’s Jason — sorry to interrupt, but can I just do a quick product update?  Of course, what’s up? Thanks, man. Hi Chartmetric fans, you may or may not have gotten a chance to check out the new Labels Page feature that we discussed in the last podcast episode this week. We’ve temporarily pulled the feature back from its soft release because we just don’t think it’s up to the music analytics standard we strive for. If you’ve been with us for some time, you’ve seen how dedicated we are to innovating and as we say in the tech world, sometimes “breaking things”. Well, we’ve gotten a lot of your feedback and realize that we jumped the gun a bit early and we need to better clean, organize and visualize the label metadata that we have, which is what we do best. So we recognize the issue, and we are working swiftly to bring the Labels Page back with verve and more importantly, accuracy! Back to our regularly scheduled program, take it away, Rutger! Thanks, Jason! DateThis is your Data Dump for Friday, August 2nd, 2019. How 2019’s Playlist Growth Might Affect Emerging ArtistsThese days, getting onto streaming’s top playlists is sort of the name of the game. It really determines the visibility of emerging artists and cements the longevity of established ones. So, it got us wondering…. What’s been going on on the top playlists in 2019? Hitting the Playlists tab on the Chartmetric homepage brings up tons of playlist information for Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer, and Amazon. From there, we can compare everything going on when it comes to the playlists claiming the top spots across a number of different measurements. On Spotify, Today’s Top Hits maintains the highest follow number, starting the year off with 22.3M and hitting 23.6M by the end of June. That’s 5.8 percent increase for that six month period. On Deezer, Les Titres Du Moment claims the top follower spot, and over the same period, experienced only about 1 percent growth from 9.8M followers to 9.9M followers. Digging in a bit deeper, we can also compare playlist length, aka number of tracks. For that six month period, for example, Spotify’s Hot Country playlist grew 31.4 percent in length, while Apple Music’s The A-List: Pop playlist grew the same amount. But those aren’t the highest numbers.  Spotify’s EDM-focused Mint playlist...
