Spotify has launched a new digital portal for listeners that shows which breakout artists they discovered before they hit the big time.
Called ‘Found Them First’, the platform shows the the first date a user listened to a breakout artist, and reveals a Spotify-generated, customized playlist of other similar breakout artists. The top 1-15% of listeners are considered “early listeners” and will be able to see this ranking.
“We love creating fresh ways for people to interact with music,” said Jackie Jantos, VP of creative and brand Strategy, Spotify. “This experience is an ode to the fans who truly love discovering new artists.
