Hello beautiful Spotify Community people!
I'm a producer and music lover and listen a lot to the Viral 50 playlists to discover awesome new artists and always stay on top of what's new.
However, I'm very curious on how these playlists work? Is it based on social shares? Or how many times the song is streamed in each country?
Or are the tracks in the lists simply selected by Spotify staff?
All information is appreciated!
Hope you have a great day!
Solved! Go to Solution.
I assume it works in the same way that Billboard does their "trending artist" page; basically, they take all the analytics from social medias, tally them up, and see who's being talked about the most based on blogs, people tweeting about them, etc. Most of the time, these artists are already established, they just haven't made it into the mainstream.
Hope that helped. Cheers!
