Rising artist Alaina Castillo was already making waves in the music industry, and her inclusion in the new Spotify RADAR program has only increased the momentum.
Castillo recently surpassed the 1 million monthly listener mark on the platform; her count was 1.049 million as of Tuesday, March 10.
The artist is attracting particularly noteworthy interest for new song “ocean waves” and previous standout “i don’t think i love you anymore.” The former is nearing 600K streams just a few days after release, while the latter just crossed the 3.5 million cumulative mark.
As confirmed Monday, the new RADAR program provides a group of promising international artists with playlist support and additional content features. As the RADAR selection for the United States, Castillo took center stage in Spotify’s formal announcement.
