Curious about the best tools for tracking Spotify data? We look at some of the best options to track your streaming data across platforms.
Few would argue Spotify’s dominating presence as an indicator of artist success across streaming and social platforms — critical components of upward momentum in the music industry today. The company’s own offering, Spotify For Artists, has become a powerful tool for understanding your Spotify data as an artist. But once you’ve mastered Spotify’s analytics tool, there’s a variety of available services to take that data further, expanding your scope to include things like market-level data.
The leading platform in music stats and trends and how to quantify that data, Chartmetric offers a robust suite of tools. The platform’s growing list of metrics and insights backed by data science enables you to harness your Spotify artist data and the Spotify data of other artists. Chartmetric makes it easy to break down specific statistics — like playlist inclusion and global listener trends — and compare them with those of other artists across Spotify’s music economy.
The first music analytics app on the market, sometimes there’s no reason to reinvent the wheel. Songstats offers what it says on the tin, offering with ease the ability to identify the impact of playlists on your releases across Spotify’s landscape, comprehensive statistics, and deeper insights into that data. Songstats make tracking your success easy, notifying you when your content moves and letting you know in real-time when you enter the Spotify Charts.
