This #TBT, we’re throwing it back with six insights from your music sharing and listening activity throughout the year, to reveal new sounds and artists who rose to the top. From Chance the Rapper’s Coloring Book to some of the buzziest tags in 2016, such as #TRAPSOUL and #phonk – these findings prove creativity is stronger than ever on SoundCloud, and will only continue to thrive in 2017.
The following insights were compiled based on indicators and actions you’ve taken on SoundCloud including your streams, likes, reposts and shares. Because of you, our connected community of listeners, curators and creators, SoundCloud is constantly driving culture and creativity forward and creating new trends. In many cases, what’s “breaking” or “new” everywhere else, is born on SoundCloud.
Wishing you your most creative year yet. We can’t wait to see what 2017 brings.
SoundCloud is the world’s largest audio and music streaming platform, now with more than 135 million tracks from the biggest names, to new and emerging artists you can’t find anywhere else. Connecting artists of every level with listeners, and listeners with their new favorite artist or track is what we do, and we continue to make it easier than ever to discover on SoundCloud.
This summer, we launched several new features to help you discover SoundCloud’s massive catalog of diverse content – from hip-hop, rock, pop, jazz, ambient, witch-hop and electronic, to new genres and sounds emerging on SoundCloud everyday.
Our new features were specially designed to enhance your personal listening experience, and each new feature serves up a unique mix of music for all of the different moments in your daily life. To sum it all up, we’ve created an easy visual to help you decide which feature to pair with any moment or mood in your day.
Whether you use SoundCloud’s free offering or our new subscription service SoundCloud Go, all of the new features are available to you. With SoundCloud Go, you get access to an expanded catalog of content and an ad-free listening experience you can take offline. Haven’t tried SoundCloud Go yet? Click here for more info.
Enjoy discovering on SoundCloud and stay tuned for more features rolling out this fall.
Today we’re excited to announce the launch of a completely redesigned Stats page for all SoundCloud users who share their music and audio. Jami’s here to tell you all about it:
Free users can view which of their tracks are played, liked, reposted, downloaded, and commented on the most.
Pro users can see their top fans on SoundCloud and the countries where their tracks are popular. Reach out to your top fans with SoundCloud messaging to connect and get feedback. You may find you have a fan base halfway around the world – plan your latest release or tour based on where your tracks are being played.
With a Pro Unlimited account, you get the above features and can also see the websites, apps, and social networks that people are listening from. Use this data to understand the network you’re a part of – you could find you’ve been written up on a blog or that many people are reposting your tracks on SoundCloud.
Based on your feedback, we’ve significantly streamlined the design. All of your stats are now viewable from one page.
Access your redesigned stats in the drop down menu to get started learning more about who’s playing your sounds.
Find more details about how to use your stats in the help center. Can’t see your redesigned stats? Please hold tight — we’re rolling the feature out in stages, so if you don’t see it yet, you will soon.
