Every Song On Soundcloud’s Top 50 Is By A Rapper

Soundcloud belongs to the rappers now.

The streaming platform, which was once dominated by EDM, has now given way almost completely to rappers as EDM artists flee en masse to services like Spotify and Apple Music. As of this week, 50 of the top 50 tracks on Soundcloud are by rappers. And not small ones, either – established names like Post Malone, XXXtentacion, Lil Pump, Migos, Lil Uzi Vert, Logic, and Cardi B are dominating the list. (But no Kendrick.)

What does this mean for EDM? Not much. The question should be: what does this say about Soundcloud and streaming? Is rap now keeping the service alive? Are we looking at a legitimate changing of the guard situation here? Perhaps the streaming climate has just changed that much.

Compare this to Spotify where out of the ten most streamed songs on the platform, four are EDM.
