[Desktop][Playlists] Bring back listener count in 'Discovered On' section

Spotify has recently chosen to hide the Numbers of playlist listeners in the "Discovered On" section.

This is absolute nonsense:
First problem: it was a cool way for emerging artists to find new playlists to be placed in (I have personally reached 17.000 monthly listeners using this method), and we all know that emerging artists that rely on Spotify streams, will bring new public to Spotify, pushing new people to use it.

Second problem: playlist curators that actually have active followers, won't be able to show it anymore, this way, playlist curators with nonactive followers will be privileged. This will bring artists not to rely on Playlist curators anymore, making it even harder for new emerging artists to grow in the platform.

 

This can only create an even bigger gap between small and big artists. Instead of helping people who really spend tons of hours on Spotify to grow, the platform seems to reduce what can be considered a useful tool for this purpose.

Let's keep it.

I am also disappointed that Spotify has removed this feature. This is harmful to artists.

I agree. It just creates an even bigger gap between small artists and big ones

As a curator I’m absolutely agree with this idea, I’m hoping to be implemented ASAP.

It's pointless, Spotify is not going to implement this.  Just like their other selfish decisions, this one is them not wanting to reveal that some of their playlists have less listeners than user curated ones

I totally agree. It was a very useful and simply interesting tool. I always wished they would add more than just the first 5 playlist on the tab and... they're going the other way around. I'm really sad, I used to spend so much time on spotify and this will definitely make my experience less interesting.
