Similar to Spotify for Artists and Apple Music for Artists, Amazon has their own new analytics platform for musicians called Amazon Music for Artists. Here’s everything you need to know.
Everything You Need To Know About Amazon Music for Artists
With Amazon Music for Artists, you get access to important information like where your fans are based with location insights, real-time streaming data, which fans are the most engaged and the ability to keep track of the Amazon Music playlists and stations where your music is featured. — Not only that, the data available goes back to 2018 and refreshes on the app every couple of hours.
Here’s the rundown…
The main difference between platforms like Spotify for Artists and this new feature is the addition of voice technology data. Because voice has become one of the main driving forces for music discovery, this feature is a great way to dive even deeper with your promotional efforts.
- With this feature, Amazon’s app gives insights on how an artist is trending on Alexa.
- It also shows the artist’s total number of voice requests and details about the various ways people request songs, such as by artist, album, song, or lyrics.
During a panel at last year’s Nashville’s Music Biz conference, Amazon Music’s director mentioned that “Alexa, play…” is the second most popular command for the device behind “Alexa, set a timer.” Fans can also set a song to play as their morning alarm or ask Alexa to follow an artist on Amazon Music to get notified about new music as soon as it’s released.
