In a statement, SoundCloud added:

“Each week, SoundCloud Weekly playlists will feature music from millions of unique creators–multiple times more than are featured in playlists on other streaming services–giving creators a powerful new avenue to grow their play counts, followers and careers on SoundCloud first.”

Speaking on the streaming services newest feature, SoundCloud’s Chief Executive Officer, Kerry Trainor stated:
