Music analytics company, Chartmetric has launched an interactive web-based version of its biannual 6MO report, examining fan consumption & breakthrough music metrics for January 1 through June 30, 2021. This edition is framed by the examination of gender equality in the music industry through the lens of artist pronoun usage.
From the report:
“Using our newly developed database (a work in progress) of approximately 450K artists whose pronouns are listed in their streaming platform biographies — the first of its kind in the world, as far as we’re aware — we examine the distribution of pronouns overall, by genre, by playlists, and by charts, with the aim of bringing attention to the lack of gender equity and representation in music. In our view, fixing the problem starts with knowing how severe it is and where the music industry needs to focus its energy and resources most.”
