Officially formed in 2012 after winning first place on ‘Jamming’, a local TV competition, PAYSLIP has performed at widely-acclaimed local events including Konsert Ekspresi Harian Metro (HM) at Dataran Merdeka, and 1Malaysia For Youth (1M4U).
The band also recorded a song from Allahyarham Datuk Sudirman Haji Arshad, titled Joget Kenangan Manis, for the Hit No.1 tribute album.
Alongside the launch of the week-long exclusive pre-stream of PAYSLIP’s single which continues Spotify’s support for local acts in the region, Spotify also reveals its position as the fastest growing and only truly free music streaming service in Malaysia with unique insights on its music fans.
We are absolutely delighted to have PAYSLIP’s single available exclusively on Spotify.
We’re committed to supporting Asian artists by giving them a platform to showcase their talents to our global audience of passionate music fans.
We’re amazed at how passionate Malaysian music fans are about their music. Two million playlists created and 12 million songs played per week speak for itself.
That’s almost 70 years of music played back to back every week!
says Sunita Kaur, Managing Director of Spotify Asia.
Malaysians are heavy desktop users, with 33% using this platform to access Spotify as compared with the rest of Asia (24%). Desktops are also the preferred streaming choice at 54%, while 39% of users use their mobile phones and 6% stream Spotify via the web player.
Spotify also recently achieved a global milestone of acquiring 10 million paying subscribers globally, up from 6 million in 2013, fueled by the roll-out of its world-first free mobile service in December 2013. Spotify offers music fans free, instant access to over 20 million songs across mobile, desktop and tablet.
