SoundCloud reflects on the year in music in its 2017 ‘Playback’
Musical retrospectives are all the rage as 2017 winds down, with SoundCloud’s “2017 Playback” graphic being the latest to enter the yearly recap ring. The visual review identifies Lil Uzi Vert’s Luv Is Rage 2 as the most frequently streamed album on the platform, and “XO Tour Llif3” as the Top Rap/Hip Hop Track of the year.
Two Friends claims a triumph in the Top DJ Set category for Volume 11 of their high energy Big Bootie Mix series. Electronic music is represented across SoundCloud’s Playback. R3HAB is accordingly recognized as Top Remixer, while Marshmello gets a special spotlight as one of the “Artists Who Were On SoundCloud First And Owned The Internet in 2017,” a nod to Marshmello’s musical origins.
