SoundCloud’s Top 10 Played Artists This Year

So far 2015 has been an eventful year for the music streaming landscape with two major new services (Tidal and Apple Music), plenty of controversy and record-breaking numbers of streams. With all the news around major industry services it’s easy to forget the most popular service for independent artists; SoundCloud.

SoundCloud hasn’t stayed completely clear of the headlines but seems to still be on track having almost doubled the amount of track plays since last year. Being open to everyone makes SoundCloud one of the greatest online resources for music discovery and for independents artists/labels breaking through.

01 – Drake

 

02 – Major Lazer
