Abstract:

In audio based music recommendation, a well known effect is the dominance of songs from the same artist as the query song in recommendation lists. We verify that this effect also exists in a very large data set at the scale of the world wide web (> 250000). Since our data set contains multiple albums from individual artists, we can also show that the album effect is relatively bigger than the artist effect.
