    Melinda Newman, writing for Billboard:

    Today Apple launches Apple Music for Artists, a dashboard designed to provide acts with hundreds of data points giving deep analytical insight into their fans’ listening and buying habits. […]

    The easily navigable dashboard’s home page provides artists with their current number of plays, spins, song purchases and album purchases. The user can specify the time period ranging from the past 24 hours to the 2015 launch of Apple Music.

    An Insights panel showcases key milestones via bullet points that highlight such information as all-time number of plays and purchases for specific songs or cumulatively.

    That's awesome.

    EDIT: Does anyone know if Spotify or TIDAL have these types of features? I would assume Spotify has something similar already, given how large they are…

    I’ve got products on a marketplace that allows you to list for free, and this type of info has always been offered. I’m kind of surprised this info is only now rolling out to artists.
