frequently asked questions

Why did the chicken cross the road?


To get to the N.A.S!




How do playlist members provide streaming proof?


We use this website to share a screenshot on our Discord channel when we stream the playlists: https://www.statsforspotify.com/track/recent




How do I reserve a top spot on the playlist for a newly released song?


Please fill in this form to reserve a top spot.




How often do I need to stream the playlists?


The Main playlist should be streamed every day that you are on it.
You should also stream the genre-specific playlist that you hope to join every day.




Can I be removed from a playlist?


After three days of inactivity you will be replaced on the playlist by another new artist. If you find yourself unable to stream for personal reasons please contact your chat room mods and they’ll decide on a case-by-case whether or not to reserve your place on the playlist. Artists can also banned from the playlist for any form of cheating. This can include but is not limited to: stealing screenshots from other artists, sending old screenshot proofs, sending screenshots of songs that aren’t on the playlist and sending extremely short screenshot proofs.




How long can I stay on a playlist?


Typically, you’ll cycle off of the main playlist after 3 weeks unless you are a mod. However, you can stay on the Genre playlists for as long as you are active. You also can reserve the right to be at the top of the main playlist again the day your new music drops.




Is it a good idea to join New Artist Spotlight?


Yes. Yes it is.




How can I easily save all the playlists’ songs to my Spotify library?


We have an in-house solution that enables you to follow all artists in just a few clicks! We submit follow proof every Wednesday so once you’re in the N.A.S community we’ll show you how!




When do I become eligible to be placed on a genre playlist?


After graduating from the playlist, you will be eligible to be placed on a genre playlist that fits your graduated song. You can remain on that playlist for as long as you like, granted that streaming requirements are followed.




What does it mean to “graduate” from the playlist?


To graduate from the playlist means that you have completed your served time on the playlists! However, it does not stop here. You have the option to be genre exclusive and only stream that playlist. You can also submit a new song and undergo the entire process again!




Who should I contact if I have a question regarding the playlist and streaming?


Please message us @nas_spotlight on Instagram and we will get back to you as soon as possible! Or if you’re already a member use the beginner questions channel on our Discord!
