Understanding the Track Score

Our Track Score is our proprietary algorithm designed to evaluate the performance of a track across seven major platforms: Spotify, Youtube, TikTok, Airplay, SoundCloud, Pandora, and Shazam. It considers various metrics from each platform, including streams, views, likes, and radio plays, to provide a comprehensive assessment of the track's popularity and engagement.

How the Track Score Works

The algorithm we developed analyzes data from each platform and gives additional weight to recent tracks. It normalizes data across platforms to ensure fairness and accuracy, considering differences in user engagement metrics per platform. The contribution of each platform is weighted based on its significance in the music industry and audience reach.

Using the Track Score

The Track Score helps artists, labels, and industry professionals in the following areas:

  1. Evaluate Performance: Gain insights into how well a track resonates with audiences across platforms.

  2. Compare Tracks: Identify trends and audience preferences by comparing Track Scores of different tracks.

  3. Identify Opportunities: Capitalize on high Track Scores to increase visibility and success.

  4. Monitor Progress: Track the trajectory of a track's performance over time and adapt strategies accordingly.


Our Track Score is a valuable tool for understanding the performance and popularity of a single track. By leveraging this algorithm, artists and industry professionals can make informed decisions and optimize their strategies for success in the dynamic music industry.
