Supr is dedicated to the global Friday release day, thanks to Spotify this has become even more celebrated with the introduction of their New Music Friday playlists. These playlists are collated globally by Spotify’s editors and feature new releases from some of the biggest artists today as well as releases from new and exciting artists the world over. Spotify’s New Music Friday playlists are curated by teams in Australia, France, Spain and Brazil through to America, Sweden, Germany, Iceland, United Kingdom and more. Aside from country-specific curated New Music Friday playlists there is also New Music Friday Latin, Christian and a General playlist which serves countries currently without a dedicated New Music Friday playlist.
When an artist releases an album there’s potential for more than one song from that artist to appear across New Music Friday playlists. Scroll through the search results to find out which songs are featured on which playlists.
When your artist releases a new single or album then use the Supr search function to see if it appears on any of Spotify's New Music Friday playists, then check out the chart to see where they rank in compared to all the other artists featured across the playlists.
The chart ranks tracks in the following order:
Kendrick Lamar, Sam Smith and Queens of The Stone Age each have a song featuring on a total of 27 New Music Friday playlists. Kendrick and Sam both feature on the exact same 27 playlists and therefore they reach the same 6,897,444 playlist subscribers. However, even though Queens of The Stone Age feature on same total of 27 playlists, one of the playlists is different to that of the 27 that both Kendrick and Sam feature on, this different playlist has a considerably smaller playlist follower count and therefore QOTSA only reach 6,010,209 subscribers, meaning they’re ranked at #3 in the chart.
A general rule is that the higher up the playlist a track is the more people are likely to hear it. If a track is in the top 5 of a 50 track playlist as opposed to the bottom 5, it’s more likely it will get more streams.
With Kendrick and Sam both being on exactly the same 27 playlists and therefore both reaching the same amount of playlist subscribers, we now need to calculate where their track sits on those playlists in terms of track order. We take the track position of every New Music Friday playlist where both Kendrick and Sam individually feature and we add them together. Kendrick’s combined track positioning is 187 and Sam’s is 200, therefore Kendrick is ranked higher than Sam in the above example.
Japan's New Music Friday is actually a Wednesday, this playlist updates with new releases following their Friday release.
The UK recently started changing the track order of their New Music Friday playlist on the following Monday meaning that the chart has potential to change as artists move higher up in the running order and others move down. To our knowledge, no track is removed from a New Music Friday playlist until the following Friday.
