How Does Amazon Music for Artists Work?
Stream Counts & Top Songs
Just like other streaming analytics platforms, Amazon Music for Artists allows you to use custom time frames to find out your total streams and total listeners, as well as stream counts for each of your individual tracks.
Playlists & Stations
Anytime your music is added to any of Amazon’s playlists or Stations they’ll appear on your artist dashboard.
You can also track your Amazon Voice Requests through the platforms. Whenever someone requests your artist name, or any of your albums, tracks or lyrics, through some of Amazon’s voice recognition gear like Alexa, it’s logged here.
Daily Voice Index also categorizes your music’s performance from ‘Cool’ to ‘Fire’, based on how many Alexa voice searches you’ve had compared to the average of other artists with the same sized audiences.
Fans & Superfans
Ever wondered how many people REALLY love your music? Amazon for Artists analyses your streaming data to categorize your listeners into ‘fans’ and ‘superfans’.
This kind of data offers a great insight into how many listeners are heavily engaged with your music. But how does Amazon define Fans and Superfans?
Fans are people who have returned back to your music after first-listening, added your tracks to their personal music library or playlists, followed your profile or purchased your digital or physical products.
These are the fans that drive over 50% of your streams and more than 1/3rd will continue to stream your music in the next 30 days.
Superfans are a relatively small but very important section of your most loyal fans. These guys make up close to 1/3rd of your total streams and most of them will carry on to listening to your tracks over the next month.
Another interesting feature of Amazon Music for Artists is the ability to integrate your Twitch channel. Here’s how:

Once you’ve connected your Amazon and Twitch accounts, fans can watch your Twitch streams directly through the Amazon Music app!
