Random listens appearing overnight

I uploaded a song a little over two months ago now and have since only had a low number of listens and other stats, but just overnight the listen count has gone up by over 4,000 and its freaked me out a bit with no other information to go on, just the listen count.

is there a way to actually find out what has happened to the song or track where it has gone for this to happen, or find out if it's fake or a glitch, or just to get any additional information on where the song is being played and how for so many counts to come so quickly? and also if my content is copyright safe in that regard?

You should link us ur song :3
thank you so much for replying so fast! I thought that would be the case most likely, just surprised me and had me worried about how safe it was, and thank you for putting that thought to rest. :)

Hi Grimmie,

I've just double checked this on our end and it looks like the plays are coming directly from SoundCloud.com, so no suspicious activity going on.

Our developers are constantly working to improve the recommendations further, and it looks like your track appears on lists of recommended track of users who have pretty strong fanbases, so this played out to your advantage :-)

Hope this helps to shed further light on why your track might have gotten so popular as of late :-)

Cheers
Mathis

Thats fine, glad I can help. I really like the song.
Hey Mathis, thank you so much for taking the time to check what was going on, I really appreciate it and I'm glad nothing suspicious was happening.
Also thank you daboot-tee for helping figure things out, not stressing about it anymore! Thanks again 🙂
