Apple Music has unveiled its City Charts feature, allowing users to track the popularity of songs in more than 100 locations.

The technology giant said the charts are based on the number of plays and “additional signs of local popularity”.


The top 25 tracks in each city will be ranked.

Dublin is the only Irish city to feature, alongside Birmingham, Glasgow, Liverpool, London and Manchester in the UK.

Other major cities available include Los Angeles, New York and Sydney.


The charts will be updated daily and can be accessed via the streaming platform’s charts page, or users can ask Siri to play a local city chart.

On Tuesday, MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name) by Lil Nas X was top of the charts in Dublin. Justin Bieber’s Peaches was the most popular song in Manchester and London, while Liverpool’s was Bed by Joel Corry, Raye and David Guetta.
