Introduction: What are Followers on Spotify?
Spotify is a global online music streaming service headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden. It provides digital rights management-protected content from record labels and media companies to individuals for a monthly fee. It was founded on August 10, 2008 by Daniel Ek and Martin Lorentz. Since then, the service has gained popularity in many countries throughout the world, including South Africa.
More and more people are joining Spotify every day, however, not many of them know that you can follow artists on Spotify. When you have followed an artist, you will automatically be notified whenever the artist has uploaded a new song or album. This is perhaps one of the biggest reasons why so many people are now subscribing to this service.
Is it possible to see who is following whom? This is definitely something that is in high demand among many users. Perhaps you are one of them. This article will discuss how to view followers on Spotify.
Why Your Spotify Follower Count Matters
Spotify is the world’s largest music streaming service and boasts 60 million users worldwide. It is able to provide many of those users with access to the digital catalogs of music label SONGS. Spotify has published three lists detailing users’ follower counts: the most popular artist, most popular artists, and most top-100 artists. The following article will explain how to view your follower count on Spotify’s ‘Most Popular Artist Count’ list. It will also explain how to view your follower count on the ‘Most Popular Artists’ list and the ‘Most Top-100 Artists’ list.
After creating an account on Spotify, all users have a follower count of 0. Followers are users who have added your Spotify account to their own Spotify friend list. In order to show up within the top 100 artists on any of the three lists mentioned above, your account must have accumulated more than 1,000 followers.
The easiest way to view your follower count is through the ‘Most Popular Artist’ list that you can access through your profile tab. Your follower count should appear in the bottom-right corner of the screen. If you don’t see it, however, that is because your account has not yet amassed over 1,000 followers.

Spotify also provides users with access to artists’ playlists, so if you’re interested in following a particular artist, you can create your own. Just click the arrow next to any artist’s name and select ‘Create Playlist’. You’ll be taken to the pop-up window where you can type a name for your playlist and add some of your favorite songs.

Starting with the song or playlist you want to share, click ‘Share’, then choose who should see your recommendation. You can share with a specific user, you can share with all of your followers, or you can select a group of users to share with.
