We cover over 70% of the global recorded music industry and use our data to forecast the next big selling artist. Next Big Sound powers the Social 50 and Next Big Sound charts for Billboard, artist analytics for Spotify, and has raised $7.5m in venture financing from Foundry Group, IA Ventures, SofttechVC, and a handful of angel investors.
