Get excited, Asia! Charlie Puth will be touring our region really soon! Regardless, if you are going or not, we think you should set up as many reminders as you can on all your devices, as Charlie Puth will be taking over a Spotify Playlist – It’s A Hit! – for 3 days straight (12, 13 & 14 August, 2016).
It’s A Hit is one of the most followed playlists (over 250 thousand followers) in Asia, showcasing the hottest curated hits of today. If you are keen to find out what are some of Charlie’s favourite hits, this would be the best playlist to check out.
Just for these three days, enjoy the curation of the It’s A Hit! playlist done by Charlie specifically for his fans. It’s definitely going to be a Charlie Puth weekend, as we continue celebrating him as one of our featured artists from the Spotlight on 2016 list. Head over to Spotify and be part of the takeover. For more information, you can follow our social media platforms – Facebook, Instagram & Twitter – or just head directly over to Spotify.
Spotlight is Spotify’s annual list of the best new artists that we believe music fans will love in the year to come. This is the platform in which we believe emerging artists will have a huge break within the music scene. The Spotlight list was carefully compiled using a combination of both human curations by Spotify’s team of in-house music experts, with the analysis of millions of streams’ worth of music fans’ current listening data, including:
- The artists whose music is appearing in Spotify’s viral charts, which are a barometer of the music that is being shared the most among friends.
- The artists being listened to now by Spotify’s most musically-influential users, who have a track record of discovering breaking artists early.
- The artists whose music is bubbling up in Spotify’s Fresh Finds, a weekly-updated playlists that identifies under-the-radar artists that are generating buzz online.
