SOME OF THE BIGGEST STREAMING PLATFORMS FOR MUSIC
In recent years, music streaming platforms have been the most influential music distribution networks. Goodbye to CDs and other physical musical media, it is now possible to listen to your music wherever you go. An advantage that artists can also use to make their musical project known to as many people as possible. So what are the biggest music streaming platforms today?
If we had to name just one platform, it would be this one: Spotify. World leader in music streaming, this Swedish giant has managed to conquer the world thanks to its vast and varied catalog, its playlists, and its ingenious recommendation system. Believe us, if you have to choose one platform to distribute your music, this is it.
Deezer is the French Touch that is conquering the world. Spotify’s French alter ego is similar in many ways to its Swedish little brother. With 43 million titles to its credit, the platform has the largest offer in terms of quantity. Ideal for artists betting on the French or European market, Deezer is more than a wise choice to make themselves known to the general public.
Youtube is one of the most influential networks for distributing your music. Since last May, the red giant has taken the portable streaming experience a step further by creating the Youtube Music application. If the platform is still very young, it represents a definite threat to other market leaders. However, this is good news for artists because Youtube Music represents one more platform to broadcast their musical projects.
The Apple empire owns one of the most viewed music platforms in the world: Apple Music. A direct competitor of Spotify, the platform recently became number one in the United States in terms of paid subscriptions. You will understand, whether you are a fan of Apple or not, that distributing your music on this platform can make a difference.
GOOGLE PLAY MUSIC
On the Android side, Google Play Music dominates with its streaming and download offers. With more than 35 million titles available, the American giant also allows you to add 50,000 titles from its music library. A compromise that suits many users, especially since the platform also gives access to the Youtube catalog.
Another platform you could consider is BOOMPLAY.
