Grime Is Now Officially Recognised As A Genre On Spotify


January 05, 2018

It's official. Grime is now recognised as a fully fledged genre on Spotify, making your search through grime's history easier than ever. In the past, we've had to rely on the 'similar artists' tool with varying success. Now, in theory, it should all be grouped together—so we'd better not see J Hus or 67 in there.

The update is just the latest example of Spotify expanding its reach and engagement with fans and artists. It comes after the overwhelming success of the Who We Be live show at Ally Pally in November, which featured Stefflon Don, Cardi B, Giggs, Mist, Dizzee Rascal and more.
