Found Them First

Really cool service from Spotify that tells you who were listening to on Spotify before they made it big. For the record, these are the artists who owe their success to me:

  • Magic!
  • Of Mice and Men
  • Banks
  • Ariana Grande
  • The Mowgli's (who I listen to in spite of their terrible apostrophe usage)
  • Meghan Trainor

I'd love to see even more data analysis like this out of Spotify. Their end of year reports are great as well, but I shouldn't have to wait that long to get insight like that. This sort of data analysis could and should be a huge differentiating feature between Spotify and other music streaming services.
