Spotify Adds Total Plays For Artists' Top Songs

Posted by: Jack Appleby (05/16/13)
Spotify is rolling out Total Plays to the Popular Tracks section of each Artist Profile. All Spotify users will have the feature in the coming weeks, though many are seeing the numbers already. Can you see Total Plays? Any numbers surprise you?

Can you view this on the iPhone or iPad app or is this only on the desktop/laptop computer version?

Aren't they just the casual music listener's rock band?

Wasn't he pointing out that the #1 song wasn't actually the most played, #7 was? (I'm probably wrong).

This is interesting.

Last.fm's numbers are more a reflection of "technical users" -- anyone who can figure out how to get it running, a sometimes-complex task.

Spotify's numbers are more "casual users". I bet Nickelback gets a lot more plays, for example, here.

Last.fm gets this part right. Weekly listeners is a far more interesting than overall top plays.

Although I agree with the confusion, it could be Popular based on number of plays within the last X amount of time while the numbers represent total plays. I have no idea if that's correct but could potentially be an explanation.

This has been a thing in Rdio for a while. Always interesting to see how many plays Brand New's Your Favorite Weapon has.

Well I bet i will be one of the last to get this update. Spotify and their updates don't mesh with me for some reason. I just got the recent artist interface a couple weeks ago...
