Canadians are streaming music more than ever
As pointed out in this week’s Canadian music sales and streaming report, there were more than two billion on-demand audio streams in the country last week. This is a new high for Canadians. This is a total tally of streams summoned up on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, Tidal, and all the rest of them. YouTube video streams were not included (and that was another 150 million streams).
Here’s how things shake out by genre according to MRC Data:
- Pop – 32%
- R&B/Hip-Hop – 13%
- Rock – 12%
- Alternative Rock – 6%
- Country – 6%
