Don't put your music at risk with artificial streaming


May 7th, 2024

It might sound like a great idea to boost your new track on Spotify with a few extra paid streams by involving a third-party company. What's the harm right? Well...

Third parties that promise playlist placements or a specific number of streams in exchange for compensation are likely using illegitimate practices without your knowledge.
These services can threaten your hard work, resulting in the potential withholding of streams or royalties, or even the complete removal of your catalog from Spotify.

Spotify works diligently to ensure streams are legitimate, meaning they reflect genuine user listening intent. If a service finds that you (or a third party hired by you or on your behalf)
have boosted play counts through any automated, deceptive, fraudulent or other invalid means (digital bots, “click farms”, payment for placement on playlists, etc.),
the service may permanently remove your entire catalog and even fine the distributor.

Which is something you absolutely don’t want!
We’d also like to point out that non-violating artists are not impacted by artificial streaming penalties.
