In the below article, we will focus on the Instagram analytics of an artist. YouTube and TikTok analytics work the same way. The only requirement for us to track a profile is to be above 1,000 followers.

The Instagram details page presents valuable insights into an artist's social engagement. The page is divided into two categories: Demographics and Engagement.

Instagram analytics is a premium feature, available in all paid plans. If you are not yet a customer and want to try it out, you can explore it for free on Tones and I's profile.

Start tracking Instagram Data

If you do not see Instagram analytics data in the Audience section (and if the profile is big enough for us to track demographics and engagement):

  • Go to the Instagram Analytics tab

  • Submit the artist's Instagram URL

  • After the validation from the Soundcharts team, we will display the data


In the Demographics section, you can see at a glance the gender share, age, and spoken language of artist followers.

Top Cities and Countries

With our heat map, you can see what countries and cities have the biggest audience on Instagram and how the fan base evolved in those territories from one month to another.

Specifically for the United States, you can filter audience volumes by state.

Note: The evolutions will be available only 30 days after the Instagram Analytics is tracked for the first time.


Is the content shared on Instagram engaging?

On the Engagement metrics block, you can see the key Instagram engagement metrics that indicate how the artist communicates with Instagram followers.

Engagement rate

Average post engagements (comments & likes) divided by the total number of followers in the last two months.

Average likes per post

The ratio of the likes divided by total posts.

Average views per post

The ratio of the views divided by total posts.

Average comments per post

The ratio of the comments divided by total posts.

Notable followers share

Share of notable followers in the artist's audience.

What type of content performs best to engage the artist's fan base?

Figure out what type of content works well with the best performing posts of each artist; check the Top 10 posts of all time by engagement (likes & comments).

What is the artist's network?

Knowing the artist's entourage might be essential for a new campaign, featuring, or to know what other personalities are interested in. Use the Notable followers' feature and stay tuned on the top followers (influencers, celebrities, artists) ranked by the number of subscribers.

Understanding better the artists' interests

The two last features of this page let you know the artist's most used hashtags and account tags. Use this feature to identify the movements and projects the artist support or the messages he mostly wants to communicate, or still what are the brands or people one often has interactions with.
