Shortly after Spotify expanded its services into Venezuela, Iran and four other countries, the Spotify for Artists platform has now been made available in 16 additional languages.
The Spotify For Artists app launched in 2017 and allows artists and their managers to add a canvas, update bios, artist picks and playlists and enables them to track the performance of new releases.
“Until now, Spotify for Artists has only spoken one language,” says Spotify in a blog post.
Spotify adds its “vision” is for a music industry where “all artists across the world have access to data and tools that help them build their fanbases and grow their careers.”
The update now enables Brazilian Portuguese, Canadian French, Czech, Dutch, European French, European Spanish, Finnish, German, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Malay, Polish, Spanish for Latin America, Swedish, and Turkish.
These 16 additional languages are now available on the Spotify for Artists web and mobile app.
Spotify also says it plans to make more languages available in the future.
The announcement comes as non-native English language artists have continued to pull in huge numbers on the streaming platform.
Spotify recently announced that Puerto Rican Reggaeton star Bad Bunny was the most-streamed artist in the world on Spotify for 2021.
Bad Bunny picked up the ‘most-streamed artist’ accolade for the second year in a row, receiving over 9.1 billion streams in 2021 as of December 1.Music Business Worldwide
