Spotify Removes Thousands of AI-made Songs Uploaded by Boomy Platform

The Boomy songs were taken down due to suspicions of "artificial streaming," which is online bots impersonating real people to increase the number of listeners for particular songs.

According to sources, Spotify, the biggest player in the audio streaming industry, recently removed tens of thousands of songs, or roughly 7% of the recordings that the platform Boomy had uploaded.

According to an individual familiar with the incident, the major record label Universal Music had alerted all of the major streaming services of unusual streaming activity on Boomy recordings.

The Boomy songs were taken down due to suspicions of “artificial streaming,” which is online bots impersonating real people to increase the number of listeners for particular songs. Because technology enables the instant generation of several music files that can then be posted online and streamed, AI has made this kind of activity simpler.

Boomy, a platform that was introduced two years ago, allows users to select different genres or descriptors, such “rap beats” or “rainy nights,” to produce music that is automatically generated. The song can then be made available via streaming platforms, where users will get royalties. According to Boomy, a company based in California, its customers have written over 14 million songs.

According to the firm, “artificial streaming is a long-standing, industry-wide problem that Spotify is working to stamp out across our service.” 

Last month, according to a report in The Financial Times, Universal Music wrote to streaming services requesting that they take action to limit the use of generative AI on their platforms. The Weeknd and Drake’s voices were imitated in a song that went viral on streaming services the same week.
