  • Guest Editors' Introduction: Platforms, Labor, and Community in Online
    • Abstract: As part of its 2019 global advertising campaign for "Streaming's Biggest Decade," music streaming platform Spotify put up billboards and installations cleverly visualizing some of its proprietary data. One ad in the campaign used variously sized images of the viral pop singer Rebecca Black to represent the average percentage of streams of her (much-maligned) song "Friday" that occurred on each day of the week. Unsurprisingly, the largest percentage of streams of the song was cued up on the titular day; the "Friday" Black towers over the others on the billboard, leaving only her legs visible.This advertisement is almost too convenient a metonymic object for this special issue of American Music, which brings together ...

  • The Long History of the 2017 Spotify "Fake Music" Scandal
    • Abstract: In July 2017 The Verge reported that popular streaming music service Spotify was employing a handful of musicians to produce over fifty tracks to fill out the company's "Peaceful Piano," "Calm Vibes," and "Music for Concentration" in-house playlists.1 Other news outlets soon followed suit with articles such as "Are Spotify's 'Fake Artists' Any Good'" and "Spotify Is Accused of Creating Fake Artists—but What Is a Fake Artist'"2 Since 2013 Spotify has featured playlists that the company curates for users throughout the platform as part of the company's branding. They are often the first thing that a user sees when opening the app and also appear in searches and in recommendations based on search results. They range ... Read More

  • Fake Streams, Listening Bots, and Click Farms: Counterfeiting Attention in
           the Streaming Music Economy
    • Abstract: SEOClerks is a microlabor platform. Like other, better-known sites, such as Amazon's Mechanical Turk, Crowdflower, and Fiverr, the platform acts as a virtual labor market, bringing together buyers and sellers of services. Those seeking to have tasks done can publish job descriptions, detailing, among other things, the prices they are willing to pay, while those looking for work can advertise the services they offer and the fees they charge, as well as make bids on jobs posted to the platforms. Where microlabor platforms like SEOClerks differ from other, more traditional labor markets is in the scale, distribution, and digital mediation of the services being traded: generally speaking, microwork consists of small ...

  • Chance the Rapper, Spotify, and Musical Categorization in the 2010s
    • Abstract: Watch brick and mortar fall like dripping water, uh!In early 2017 Chance the Rapper was on top of the world. He won three Grammy Awards, including Best New Artist, Best Rap Album, and Best Rap Performance, all for his freely distributed, independently released, stylistically eclectic mixtape, Coloring Book. Driven entirely by social media, touring, and streaming services, his wins seemed to embody the utopian potential of the music industry's ever-increasing reliance on streaming to mediate popular music consumption. The Grammy website lauded Chance as the first "streaming-exclusive" artist to win an award, and his successes appeared to benefit from the liberational, decentralizing potential of novel digital ...

  • Circulatory Maintenance: CThe Entailments of Participation in Digital
           Music Platforms
    • Abstract: To the administrators, developers, moderators, team members, interviewers, uploaders, downloaders, seeders, musicians, designers, archivists, and historians who contributed countless thousands of hours of voluntary effort: our library could not have existed had you not been willing to build it piece by piece.This article examines an undertheorized facet of digital participation, a mode of labor that is distinctly not creative, one that fits equally between the "playground" and the "factory": labor that is preservational in nature.1 Based on a multisited digital ethnography of digital music circulation conducted between 2013 and 2016, I articulate how listeners are enjoined to partake in the ongoing maintenance of ...

  • Receiving, Remixing, Recuperating "Rebecca Black—Friday"
    • Abstract: On March 11, 2011, popular internet humor blog the Daily What published a post containing a single YouTube video. The video's static thumbnail evoked placid suburban domesticity: a medium close-up of a white adolescent girl smiling widely, framed against a background of green foliage. This post, with its innocuous image—seemingly suitable for advertising home insurance or back-to-school supplies—was inexplicably and provocatively captioned "Where Is Your God Now of the Day: I am no longer looking forward to the weekend."1Prior to the Daily What posting, the video had received relatively little online viewership. But just a few weeks later, on March 30, it had edged out the music video to Justin Bieber's "Baby" to ... Read More

  • Musicking Fan Culture and Circulating the Materiality of Taylor Swift
           Musical Greeting Cards on YouTube
    • Abstract: In the opening scenes of the 2010 film Easy A, Emma Stone's Olive arrives home from school to find an envelope with a card that just arrived in the mail from her grandmother. The cover of the card reads "To My Granddaughter. You're My …" and on the inside, "Pocket Full of Sunshine!" completes the greeting. A five-dollar bill falls loose, and overly cheerful "Pocket Full of Sunshine" plays without warning. Closing the card quickly in disgust prompted by the song selection, Olive exclaims, "Worst song ever." Olive gives the card a second chance, and her feelings toward the song shift as she spends an intimate weekend at home playing (and replaying) musical greeting card karaoke. Upon repeat replay, Olive performs ... Read More
