Music consumption grows 15 percent in Brazil during quarantine
Brasilia, Apr 15 (Prensa Latina) Music consumption grew by 15 percent in Brazil during the SARS-CoV-2 virus isolation that today forces people to stay home and enjoy streaming services (listening to music or watching videos without downloading them).
Specialized media mention, for example, that in Spotify (a multi-platform application used to play music via streaming), from March 13 to Sunday, the 200 most listened songs per day in Brazil were played 953 million times on the platform.
During the same period last year, it was 831 million, an increase of 15 percent.
On YouTube (video sharing website), the 100 most viewed/listened to songs per week in Brazil between March 13 and April 9 were 1.44 billion, an increase of 30 million.
Such a boom is more concentrated in the group at the hit parade, mainly artists from the sertanejo (a very fashionable musical genre in this country where the sound of the viola predominates).
According to sources, in 2019 (March 15-April 11), Marília Mendonça, Brazil's most watched/listened artist on YouTube, had 205 million views.
This year, in the quarantine, the duo Henrique and Juliano leads the ranking with 264 million and Mendonça is second with 224 million.
