Spotify, YouTube, SoundCloud, and Apple Music have launched programs to better serve the artists who release music on their platforms. Now, Amazon Music is doing the same by giving artists easy access to their metrics.
On Friday (Mar. 13), the music streaming platform launched “Amazon Music For Artists,” a mobile app that allows artists and their teams to understand their business, reports Variety.
Artists can instantly know how Amazon’s 55 million customers engage with their music. The newly-launched app shows streaming performance data into an artist’s audience. Additionally, artists can also tap into the companion website that shows best practices and other resources to help artists navigate success.
The new program is full of features that extend to Amazon products as well. Artists can review a report called the “Daily Voice Index.” It shows how their music is voice requested on Alexa and on curated playlists and stations by artist, album, song or lyric.
The data updates every few hours. As a result, artists will have nearly real-time information at their fingertips.
Amazon Music partnered with CD Baby; therefore, artists who are distributed through CD Baby gain expedited access to the new platform.
