Spotify’s new About tab reveals artists’ monthly listeners


Spotify is rolling out a new feature for artists’ profiles on the streaming service: a tab called ‘About’ that replaces the current ‘Biography’ section. It promises to make very interesting reading for the industry, not just fans.

Biographies will still be part of the About tab, complete with “full screen image browsing”. But it will also show how many monthly listeners each artist has on Spotify, accompanied by their ranking on the service.

In the example published on Spotify’s blog, Hunter Hayes is revealed to have 2,298,330 monthly listeners, making him the 337th most popular artist on Spotify. These stats sit alongside the existing “followers” figure, which refers to the number of Spotify users who’ve clicked the button to follow an artist’s profile to get updates on new music.

    Did you noticed that the latest versions of Spotify scrapped the ranking with the TOP 5 places in each artist?
    I am so bummed about it because I used to check that to EVERY SINGLE artist I listened to… it was the “feature” I used actually. :/

    Do you have any news about it?
