Despite having our own unique music industry with artists from across the island being huge overseas, Jamaica was deprived of this streaming platform for several years. it wasn't until February of 2021 that we finally got access to Spotify alongside other Caribbean/African nations.
Now that we have Spotify (which is great for the visibility of Jamaicans and our artists world-wide), we now feel that we need some charts to truly showcase the popularity of artists and songs within our nation. This includes a Hot Hits chart, Viral 50, Top Songs Weekly and a Daily Top 50. Jamaican artists deserve to see how popular they are within their own nation and Jamaican fans deserve to see how their favorite international musicians fare in their own island.
We hope that our idea finds the Spotify team well.
Hey! Looks like that your idea is growing up fast and it's amazing! We are going to change its status to 'Good Suggestion' now and I hope it continues to be supported by more and more users. Thanks again for your idea. We really appreciate it 🙂
