Charts and how it works
Charts is a new, easy way to stay plugged in to what’s trending in the world of sound. With unique lists for both the top 50 tracks this week and new tracks that are getting lots of buzz on SoundCloud, as well as the ability to filter by genre, the feature is your destination for the latest and greatest out there. Charts replaces Explore on the web, so you can get there from the link at the top of your Stream, or by going here.
The “Top 50” section updates every day, and shows the 50 most-played tracks for the past week. The “New & hot” section updates multiple times each day, and shows tracks that are trending on SoundCloud right now, focusing on tracks that were uploaded more recently.
If you are a creator and you're keen to get your track trending, we recommend genuine interactions with your followers, and promotion of the track soon after you've uploaded it to increase your chances. It also helps to have the track tagged correctly with the genre you want it to appear in. The first tag should be the main genre, ideally taken from the list of genres shown in the charts.
Please note, the charts algorithm takes a day to recognize private tracks that are later made public. For greater visibility, we recommend uploading these tracks publicly to increase listens and your chances of getting onto the charts.
