Apple Music highlights local music tastes with City Charts

Apple Music has launched City Charts to spotlight the music making waves in over 100 cities around the world.

While standard charts rank music based simply on number of plays, Apple Music’s City Charts combine plays and additional signs of local popularity to rank the top 25 songs gaining momentum with listeners locally.

In the announcement, Apple Music said that City Charts “brings both global and local artists to the forefront of a new destination for music discovery”. 

UK cities available include Birmingham, Glasgow, Liverpool, London and Manchester. The current No.1 in London is Justin Bieber’s Peaches (feat. Daniel Caesar), while Glasgow’s favourite track is Bed by Joel Corry, Raye and David Guetta. 

Updated daily, City Charts are featured in Apple Music’s Charts page and are accessible via the Browse or Search pages, or by asking Siri to play a local city chart. Users can also add their favourite City Charts to their library, download them, and share them. 

Today’s launch also includes the release of brand new features for Apple Music subscribers
