Music Tectonics

Jul 16, 2020

Releasing and marketing music today generates tons of data. How do you make sense of all those Spotify streams, YouTube views, TikTok videos, Shazam searches, even Wikipedia pageviews? Chartmetric CEO Sung Cho explains how his company processes and visualizes publicly available data on 2.5 million artists to put all those numbers in context. Find out how Chartmetric helps artists, managers, indie labels, even A&R track the success of new music, surface trends before they’re even a thing, and focus their energy on what works. What does it take for a track to go viral on TikTok, and why is it such a powerful music discovery platform? What’s the deal with paid playlist promotion? How does Chartmetric track songs through “playlist journeys?” Find out why Chartmetric is a passion project for Sung after honing his data analytics expertise in mobile games and SaaS. Questions?
