Songkick and MTV team up: discover a new groove with MTV Music Meter 2.0
We’re happy to announce our latest partnership with MTV who today launched the Music Meter 2.0. The best feature in the new version, in our almighty opinion, is the integration of Songkick concert information. Now available on Android, iOS and the web, MTV Music Meter was downloaded over a million times while it was still in beta. It’s a cool curator app that helps you discover which artists are trending online and find out first when these artists are playing near you.
MTV Music Meter follows artists’ social buzz from blog posts, Vevo and YouTube streams, and Tweets. Put through the magic MTV algorithm, the artists are ranked accordingly. Each artist is featured in an expanding box that drops down to include audio samples, video, photos, news and biographies. And of course Songkick concert information for artists’ tour dates. You can click on the link to next to each tour date to find and compare the best ticket offers for each show.
Another feature we’re enjoying over here at Songkick is the new genre selector that allows fans to view rankings by music category including Up & Coming, Indie, Hip Hop and Electronic Dance Music. Similar artists recommendations appear too.
Refreshed daily, it’s a welcome update to static music charts. You can see not just what everyone else is listening to, but what people are tuning in to in real-time. Valentine’s Day has come and gone, but with the help of the MTV Music Meter you might find an artist you don’t yet know you love.
