This dataset contains a dump of the #nowplaying dataset which contains so-called listening events of users who publish the music they are currently listening to on Twitter. In particular, this dataset includes tracks which have been tweeted using the hashtags #nowplaying, #listento or #listeningto. In this dataset, we provide the track and artist of a listening event and metadata on the tweet (date sent, user, source). Furthermore, we provide a mapping of tracks to its respective Musicbrainz identifiers. The dataset features a total of 126 mio listening events.

This archive contains the nowplaying.csv file, the main file which contains the following fields:

  • user id (each user is identified by a unique hash value)
  • source of the tweet (how it was sent; as provided by the Twitter API)
  • timestamp of the time the tweet underlying the listening event was sent
  • track title
  • artist name
  • musicbrainz identifier of the recording (cf. https://musicbrainz.org/)
