DiMA Playlist - Hip Hop History & Latin Grammys 🎧

Connecting you with the stories and insights shaping the music industry today.

A Message from our CEO

It’s November and the weather is getting colder and the days are getting shorter. My own playlists are alternating between music to brighten my day and those songs I always seem to return to when I break the sweaters out for the winter.

This month, we’re celebrating Hip Hop History Month, officially designated by Congress for the first time ever. Personally, I’ll be listening to A Tribe Called Quest’s The Low End Theory, which recently celebrated its 30th anniversary.

And on the heels of yesterday’s Latin Grammy Awards, we’re continuing to see the boom of Latin Music and artists across all streaming platforms. For example, last month Spotify saw more than 187 million people around the world listen to at least one Latin track, with over 20 billion Latin songs streamed overall. This is the kind of news that gets us excited for what 2022 has in store!
