Apple Music for Artists
The platform displays data like number of song plays, how many listeners in various countries they have, and how many times a song has been purchased. Apple is also integrating Shazam:
The idea is to capture listener behavior that’s very different from seeking out an artist or a specific song — it’s more about a moment of spontaneous connection, when you hear a song and think, “Whoa, what’s this?” (This also provides a window to behavior beyond Apple Music listeners.)
All data goes back to Apple Music’s launch in 2015, so artists won’t miss out on anything. You can sign up for free here.
