SoundCloud’s new infographic details the platform’s biggest players.
Love it or hate it, SoundCloud provides content creators the world over a platform on which they can reach an ever-growing audience. The music streaming service has compiled an infographic that breaks down which artists saw the most success over the past year.
Chicago, Illinois rapper Juice WRLD received the “Top Artist” honor for amassing more likes, reposts and streams than any other uploader. His song “Lucid Dreams” was also declared “Top Track” for racking up more plays than any other upload on the platform. Two Friends and Illenium also won “Top DJ Set” and “Top Remix,” respectively – the former for “Big Bootie Mix Vol. 13,” and the latter for his remix of The Chainsmokers‘ “Don’t Let Me Down.”
The SoundCloud Playback 2018 infographic also delves into the most used tags, biggest traffic spikes, and other distinctions. Look through it in its entirety below.

Billy McFarland, the founder of Fyre Festival—one of 2017’s biggest music festival disasters—has just been sentenced to six years in prison. The charges were for multiple counts of fraud, of which Fyre Festival was only one.
Back in March, McFarland pled guilty to two counts of wire fraud and admitted that he used fake documents to lure in investors. His original sentence was likely to be four to eight years for the wiring fraud charges, but that was before he was arrested again in June for another scheme.
While out on bond, he started a ticket-selling scam called “NYC VIP Access”. He offered people access to high-profile events like the Met Gala and managed to steal at least $150,000 from people. His attorneys claimed that money was going to be used to pay back his Fyre Festival investors, which doesn’t make things any better.
Though he was apologetic both in March and today, he still begged for leniency. He said that he had already faced violence in prison and that “I lived every day with the weight of knowing that I literally destroyed the lives of my friends and family.”
His legal counsel also asked for a lighter sentence, citing that McFarland had recently been diagnosed with untreated Bipolar Disorder, which kept him from knowing right and wrong. But U.S. District Court Judge Naomi Buchwald was having none of it. “Bipolar does not excuse behavior,” she said.
“It is my conclusion based on all the submissions that the defendant is a serial fraudster and that to date his fraud, like a circle has no ending.”
Even with this statement, her sentence was not as harsh as it could have been. The wire fraud charges alone each carried sentences of up to 20 years in prison. Yet he was sentenced to six years in prison, three years of supervised release and has to pay back the $26,182,386 that he owes – though no one is really quite sure how he will manage to do that.

Some say there are only a few things in the world that can unite people together. Two of those things are music and sports. For the last week and a half, the FIFA World Cup has been taking place in Russia. People from all over the world have been cheering on their countries or favorite players while watching arguably the greatest sporting event in the world.
Over the weekend, one England star was able to merge both sport and music together. Harry Kane, the star English player, recorded a hat trick versus Tunisia in their 6-1 rout of the African nation. After the game during the press conference, a Brazilian news network asked Kane which song he would choose to play on the network. His response? ‘One Kiss’ by Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa.
Harry Kane’s answer seemed to make the rounds back to Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa as they both expressed their excitement on Twitter. ‘One Kiss’ is currently dominating the charts, so it comes as no surprise that Harry Kane chose it. Maybe we’ll see more soccer stars choosing EDM tracks to play after a big game.
Yes I’m Scottish but I don’t care the legend Harry Kane picked our song hahahahaha pic.twitter.com/r0JclobgzN
