Show Notes


  • Highlights  
    • Know thy neighbor, you may have been told, and to that us music data nerds would say, know thy artist neighbor...we’ll do so with rapper Pusha T through Chartmetric’s Neighboring Artists feature.
  • Mission   
    • Good morning, it’s Jason here at Chartmetric with your 3-minute Data Dump where we upload charts, artists and playlists into your brain so you can stay up on the latest in the music data world.
    • We’re on the socials at “chartmetric”, that’s Chartmetric, no “S ”- follow us on LinkedIn, Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook, and talk to us! We’d love to hear from you.
  • Date
    • This is your Data Dump for Wednesday, Aug. 28, 2019.
  • New Kids on the Block: Identifying Pusha T's Artist Neighbors
    • Virginia Beach veteran rapper Pusha T, dropped a new song, “Sociopath,” on Monday.
      • The Kanye West-produced track featuring Kash Doll was leaked early, but Complex Magazine’s "Best Rapper Alive" of 2018 is still keeping it moving.
    • As of yesterday, Pusha T’s Chartmetric rank was at 729th out of the 1.7M artists we track globally.
      • He has 8.2M SoundCloud followers, 140M total YouTube channel views and a Spotify Monthly Listener count at 3.8M.
    • Now, if we break out Pusha T’s Artist Neighbors by his Chartmetric rank alone...
      • To the north, we’ve got 
        • Singer-songwriter god Sara Bareilles ranked 728th, and Irish indie band Two Door Cinema Club in 725th place.
      • To the south of Push, there’s 
        • American pop rockers Cage the Elephant ranked 731st and Australian rockers The Vines in 732nd place.
    • Would Push ever do a cross-genre track with these acts who are at similar popularity levels in the digital world? 
      • It wouldn’t be his first: his guest verse on Justin Timberlake’s 2002 solo album debut “Like I Love You” or 2017 guest on Linkin Park’s “Good Goodbye” with grime rapper Stormzy have both accumulated tens of millions of spins on Spotify alone.
    • But if we filter by genre cluster-which through Chartmetric’s data science magic we find to be rap, trap music, pop, pop rap, southern hip hop-Pusha T’s Artist Neighbors now turn into:
      • Brooklyn’s Desiigner at 623rd place and Atlanta’s Playboi Carti at 591st place above Push.
      • And below, is Toronto’s PARTYNEXTDOOR at 859 and Diddy himself at 889.
      • So if Push were looking for a more similar sound in vein to plan a tour with or collab with, he could easily generate some creative ideas this way.
    • Our data science skills are growing strong with the Force back at Chartmetric HQ, so be sure to keep an eye out for more super-cool and hopefully super-useful features to come.
