Chartmetric launches new charts tracking music on Twitch | Music Ally

Twitch has been doing more with music and musicians, and analytics firm Chartmetric has been tracking that. The result is four new charts for music on Amazon’s live-video platform, presenting the top users by viewer hours both weekly and monthly, as well as the top users by followers both weekly and all-time.

Chartmetric says it’s tracking more than 5,000 artists, labels and ‘music-centric users’ on Twitch for the new rankings, pulling data “every few hours” to ensure the charts are up to date.

Among the findings so far: the most-followed music-related streamer on Twitch is Ibai Llanos (username: Ibai) who has nearly 2.4 million followers, ahead of US streamer LilyPichu, whose broadcasts mix gaming, drawing and piano-playing (hence her inclusion in the chart).

Chartmetric also says that Monstercat is the most-followed label with more than 791,000 followers, while deadmau5 is the most-followed traditional artist, with 469,000. In separate  news, dance brand Beatport is ramping up its Twitch activities with weekly shows spotlighting emerging artists.
