Our data goes back to November 2016, when Chartmetric first launched. We automatically add new artists as we spot them on charts or playlists. 

Social media URLs are automatically fetched by our system. If a URL has not been fetched, you can update links manually by clicking "Update Social Links" above the social media icons on an artist page.

Tracks are automatically recognized in playlists that are monitored by Chartmetric, as a result they are automatically added into Chartmetric.

If you find that we are not showing data for a track or streaming service for an artist, click the three dots at the top right corner to open the menu; then select "Add Data". Simply paste the URL from the streaming platform (e.g. Spotify) and we will begin tracking.

If we aren't already tracking specific data, we cannot go back in time. Once you have added the URL's following the steps above we will begin tracking moving forward.
