Music industry companies and artists have found an alternative in streaming platforms for songs to reach more people and more countries, a good example of this has been Spotify, which has taken advantage and is already positioned as one of the favorite channels to be used by the Argentine public.
However, faced with a wide musical catalog that characterizes the new millennium, it is easy to miss the latest news or the most listened to songs of the moment, which is why Spotify offers your list of topics that are currently conquering your users.
We leave you the list below:
1. Quevedo: Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 52
two. The bachata
This is the song by Manuel Turizo that is in second place. After several weeks at the top of the charts, his popularity is now declining, with 606,294 views.
3. your turrito
“DESPECHÁ”, performed by ROSALÍA, occupies fourth place on the list, after achieving 442,028 reproductions.
5. how did you sleep?
The latest from Rels B, “how did you sleep?”, enters directly to the fifth position of the list of favorites. It has already been played 340,534 times. What will the future hold?
8. I behave pretty
A number as favorable as 319,313 reproductions is not enough to continue advancing in the ranking. Thus, the one that was a hit by Bad Bunny is losing places in the list of the most listened to songs. Today it is placed in eighth place.
Reaping successes is synonymous with Duki. Therefore, it is not surprising that his new production, called “GIVENCHY”, debuted in ninth place at that time. Who else could boast 263,712 first entry views?
10. STREET FINE | Mission 10
In the music industry, Argentina is one of the most difficult countries to conquer, but those who manage to do so are guaranteed the doors of success just as these artists have achieved. Remember that this top 10 is updated every 24 hours.
*Some hits don’t have a description because the platform doesn’t provide it.
The Spotify Boom
Founded in 2006the company of Swedish origin formally began its activities in Europe on October 7, 2008 and little by little it has been having a presence all over the world, being currently in 187 countries and offering music from more than seven million artists.
Today the streaming platform has agreements with Universal Music, Sony Music, EMI Music, Hollywood Records, Interscope Records, Warner Musicamong other.
In terms of podcast, Spotify announced in November 2020 the purchase and acquisition of the advertising and podcast platform mega phone for 235 million dollars, which was used for the monetization of audios.
According to the figures published by Spotify, in 2019 it had 217 million subscribers, which in 2020 increased to 345 million and that in 2021, despite the pandemic, they reached 365 million subscribersof which about 50% are paying customers, while they now number 433 million users.
As a model, Spotify has raised pay artists from your catalog a fixed price per song or album sold and gives royalties based on the amount of artist plays in proportion to the total songs streamed, unlike its competitors, who pay for physical sales or downloads.
In addition, the 70% of your total income they go to copyright holders, mostly record labels, who then pay artists based on their individual contracts.
It should be noted that currently anyone can enjoy the Spotify free serviceas long as you’re willing to put up with ads and with restrictions like not being able to skip some songs.
