MTV Music Meter is a daily list of artists trending right now. Discover these artists and others like them through audio samples, photos, recent tweets, news articles, and bios. Or chart your own discovery path by searching through over 1 million artists
The Music Meter launched in December as an online app for music discovery — but only for bands on the indie up and up, as opposed to the all-encompassing Lady Gaga.
MTV worked with music intelligence company The Echo Nest — which recently partnered with Island Def Jam — to develop an algorithm that combs through blogs, social media, video and more traditional metrics (like radio plays and sales) to determine which bands are getting the most attention each day.
Now, that same tool is available as a free app on Apple devices (in addition to Android smartphones, and select Samsung connected TVs), where it seems much more natural than the in-browser iteration. Simply click on any artist on the chart for tracks, photos, tweets referencing that band, news and a bio.
