Jango Airplay Top 10

Here's this weeks Top 10 Artists according to their PopScore for the week of November 29 - December 5. And here's a quick reminder of how PopScore works. You need at least 100 Plays on at least one song for the one week. That means that someone who is brand new to Jango can make it into the top 10 as it's not a measure of accumulated fans over time but interactions, both positive and negative for the one week in which you receive a PopScore.

Congrats to all 1000 bands that received some bonus airplay credits this week as well.

#1: Falconbrook

Hugo Kant said...

my stats for last week (week 48) :

total plays : 326
paid plays : 244
organic plays : 82
song likes : 28
new fans : 15
profile views : 20

i whish we knew at least how many bands in total there is on jango airplay.
Also would be great to have the stats for the "negative" feedback, i guess it would be "song dislikes".

47 new fans for 8896 paid plays is really not that much.

Total number of fans is not what we are looking at here.

Whether it's 47 or 400 fans, your ratio of fans-to-(paid)plays doesn't come close to a top score. In fact, you're not even halfway there. WTF?!?!?! The popscore only measures how well people who hear your music like it and is constrained by factors like reality and math. You should go back to your old system where no one hears your music and you shine like the golden god you are.

Jango, you'd better step up and give people what they want. Remember, your bread-and-butter is vanity projects: why not let artists select their own popscore?

This is an open letter to Currensy and Wiz Khailfa for disrespecting the name of Huey P. Newton with their ridiculous record "Huey Newton." People, we can't allow our hero’s to be dragged through the media mud so I couple of housecats can get some undue glory. What they doing for the streets? They aint got no Panther blood in em, so they aint got no business using (abusing) a real revolutionaries name in vain. I sent Wiz and Currensy the following letter:
Peace. This KING ERIC III (EKG HOUSE). My brother I humbly appeal to your sense of realness. Give the BBP some bread for tarnishing Huey P. Newtons name they way ya did making a record that was totally against everything he stood for. Do right. KING
P.S. Stand up for what's right. They could of called their record "Sherman Hemsley." It would've been appropriate.

I've been using Jango for 2 weeks now to help promote my debut album and have received a popscore of 87 for both weeks, resulting in 100 free plays each week.. nice! Oh and since using Jango my record sales direct from my website have spiked.

Jango is the bomb. I don't know what you're all whining about. If you can't use this to help your career, you're missing the point.

I'm new to Jango. Have'nt been on here 2 weeks yet. It seems to work pretty well and no system is perfect. But I just had a comment left by my 100th fan saying he found my stuff playing on a HEAVY ROCK station, which is a million light years from my musical style. Thanked the fan very much for pointing this out and e-mailed asking Jango to look into it and get back to me with an explanation. Fortunately the fan liked my music, this time. But was wondering just how effective the targeting is if this happens. Otherwise looks like a great system.

i'm new too. its a koo system the free 100 plays we got from cdbaby worked and we'll see how the plays we just purchased will go

Andy said...

I'd love to see open stats' shared with the top 10. At least that way we'd see what the targets are for us all and have somewhere to aim, next step etc. Agree budgets are a huge factor, but not just for airplay, for quality studio time and everything needed to get a great song sounding as it should before it's even aired. Still love Jango but there isn't much of a clue to see how big this mountain we are all climbing is.....

Falconbrook is nice...

I am new to this, have had my holiday xmas tune playing for a week now. got some good feed back, i have only a few days left to plug it before xmas. I have had fun doing this and realise that one christmas song, Santa's Song, will need other avenues of promotion, its a once a year thing. A childrens book with cd inserted is another way. anyway i am thankful for the opportunity.
