Quelle musique écoute-t-on dans les plus grandes villes du monde ? Réponse à travers une carte interactive conçue par Spotify.


Spotify a analysé les statistiques de plus de 20 milliards de morceaux pour réaliser sa Musical Map. On y apprend notamment que le hip-hop est le genre le plus écouté au monde, que les habitants de New York The Chainsmokers tandis qu’à Berlin, on préfère Jakob Dylan.

In our connected world, people everywhere tend to enjoy the same top hits, as we can tell by looking atthe top song in each country.

But when most travelers visit another place, they don’t seek out the same food they eat at home, even if they can find it. We travel to experience what makes a place different, and special, by sampling local specialties.

Let’s try the same approach with music, on a big map of the world. You can click any of nearly a thousand cities to hear a playlist of the music that is most distinctively enjoyed there.

What do we mean by “distinctive?” This is music that people in each city listen to quite a bit, which people in other cities also do not listen to very much. So it is, exactly, the music that makes them different from people everywhere else.

Whenever you want, your headphones can take you to hundreds of cities on this map — an interactive audiographic guide to how the world listens to music. Because this music represents music that over-indexes in these cities, it’s a great way to pluck local favorites from around the world and add the ones you like to Your Music in Spotify.

Today, this will tell you that New York, New York uniquely can’t get enough of The Chainsmokers, while Berlin thrills disproportionately to one particular song by Jakob Dylan. All of these thousand or so playlists update bi-monthly, so you can return to the map whenever you want to hear the latest distinctive music to each city.
