How do I view Shazam data in the Apple Music for Artists partner view?

By seeing how listeners discover your artists’ music in all parts of the world, you can plan social media activity, promotions, and even live shows to connect with their growing audience.

If you have a song that’s been Shazamed, Apple Music for Artists will incorporate that data throughout your artist’s profile.

In the Overview section, you can view key metrics such as Shazam Milestones and Top Shazams.

Trends show detailed demographics about your artist’s Shazam listeners. In contrast, Places shows which countries or regions Shazam your artist the most.

How do I view Shazam chart data?

A Shazam chart will appear in your artist’s profile when they have a top Shazam track in a country or region, or city. The chart data updates every 24 hours and displays the track position and movement on the chart in a given country or region, or city in the last seven days.

Select a specific song to see every country or region, or city chart where the track appears. To see the Top Charts for your Top Songs, click See All in the Charting on Shazam section of Overview or Your Music.

When does a Shazam count toward my artists’ songs?

Whenever someone Shazams your artist’s song, you will see it counted as a Shazam in your Apple Music for Artists profile.

Because Shazam listens to a piece of audio from a song to recognize it, there may be times when that piece of audio happens to be identical to one from a different version of the same song. For example, an original version of a song and a remix version of that same song, often include audio pieces that are the same. In these cases, the Shazam will count toward the version of your song that is determined to be the best match, which is why you may see variations in the number of Shazams across different versions of the same tracks.

We process the Shazam data shown in Apple Music for Artists and the Shazam app on different systems and schedules. For this reason, you may see a difference in the Shazams shown on the Apple Music for Artists dashboard when compared to the Shazam app.
