Random Plays Overnight - Cant Find Where They Came From

Went to bed with a new song I have uploaded last Tuesday at 400 plays and have woken up 8 hours later to find over 6000 plays on the track. Of course absolutely ecstatic about the stats but having trouble believing it is real and not some kind of bot. I have not purchased any kind of plays or fake followers so it is all quite strange to me.

It tells me only in the stats that plays are coming from iOS (6000 plays with 5800 coming from iOS).

Does anyone have idea what is going on?

Thankyou 🙂

Hi EDM,

Can you share with the title of the track? I can take a look for you.

Same thing happened to our account. We went from 70 or 80 average plays to a few hundred over the course of a few days. I know people didn't just find us because there was no traffic bump to our multi-media page where the clips are embedded.

Hi there,

Thanks for posting and sorry about the delay before responding. I've looked into the details for your account, however there was no suspicious activity on the account, so you should be all set.

Please note your tracks are public on SoundCloud, so they might appear in the list of related tracks of other users and thus get picked up by other users.

All the best
Mathis
