Note: Artist data provided by Spotify.

For reference, Spotify classifies “Listeners” as the number of unique persons listening to music, which can indicate a measure of the artist's popularity. “Streams” is the number of times the song is played for at least 30 seconds. “Followers” are listeners who follow the artist on Spotify and receive updates/release news on the artist.

Album Release. For an artist, a new album can help energize their previously released work, particularly when it is a collaboration with an already popular artist. In this case, “Letting In” is a single that was released prior to the album Beauville EP being completed. Artists do this in order to drive excitement for the upcoming album. Set to drop in 2018, Beauville EP will include “Letting In” and the album will also be produced by NoMBe. Since NoMBe is a collaborator on the track, “Letting In” is NoMBe's third most popular song on Spotify. With nearly 1.2 million monthly listeners and over 50 million total streams, NoMBe’s following offers Beauville's "Letting In" the attention it deserves and is a strong indicator for the future of this up and coming artist.
