In an attempt to remind us that We7 exists, We7 has created an interactive map of the UK’s most-streamed music. Aping the iconic London tube map, it shows the artists most-streamed in the six most-generic genres.
While it doesn’t actually show what the different London boroughs are streaming mostly (if they hovered over my neck of the woods it’d likely be a fusion of Brixton dub and whatever Dulwich’s yummy mummies listen to – Coldplay?), it does illustrate that We7’s users have a pretty generic taste in music. I guess that’s called “mainstream.” Or maybe We7’s 9.5m songs consist entirely of Jessie J; Cheryl Cole and Mumford & Sons.
Either way, it would’ve been nice if the “tube lines” were weighted with actual streaming data (especially geographically), but I must say…Cee Lo Green? That was just one song being streamed over and over and over again, right? [We7]
