(CelebrityAccess) – Apple Music has launched a new weekly global chart called the Shazam Discovery Top 50.
According to Apple, the new Discovery chart uses Shazam’s proprietary algorithms – which assess how rapidly, steadily and/or geographically a song moves through its charts – to provide a predictive view on rising artists and the biggest trending tracks on the music recognition platform each week.
The chart currently tracks songs in over 10 countries including the US and UK, however, Apple says it plans to add artists from other countries soon.
“Shazam has always strived to offer artists the discoverability and visibility they’re working so hard to win,” said Jen Walsh, Senior Director Shazam and Beats 1, Apple Music. “This chart takes this approach one step further. It speaks directly to these rising talents, it puts them on the forefront of Apple Music every week, and it tells them that music fans are actively trying to discover their music around the world.”
The chart will be updated every Tuesday.
