As an artist, releasing new music is probably what you live for. However, while it is exciting, it can also be incredibly stressful. Long gone are the days where you would have to wait days or weeks before receiving a call from your manager telling you how well it had done. With the Spotify for Artists app you can see exactly how many times your track has been listened to.
It updates in real time so every time someone streams it, you can see. This is only in the first week which is, arguably, the most important week but after that you can still see regularly how many people are listening and streaming your music.
