Update, 3:05PM, Aug. 20: Pandora has shared a statement with Billboard on SoundCloud's exit from Next Big Sound, writing: "This isn't a surprise. We anticipated some changes to the list of partners might occur. And we're sorry to see them go. But, nevertheless, Next Big Sound remains the single best platform for music data and insights, and we're excited to apply their expertise to both our own business and our clients'."
SoundCloud has decided to stop sharing data with Next Big Sound, the streaming analytics company recently acquired by Pandora. NBS let the news slip in a tweet-reply to a confused client from Motor Entertainment, who noticed SoundCloud data was missing from his reports.
“We're sorry to report that Soundcloud decided to stop sharing data with @nextbigsound last month,” the company tweeted.
