According to Jaeung Sim of Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), "On average, audio music consumption decreased by more than 12% after the World Health Organization (WHO) pandemic declaration on March 11, 2020. As a result, during the pandemic, Spotify lost $838 million of revenue in the first three quarters of 2020, our results show that human mobility plays a much larger role in the audio consumption of music than previously thought."

The study was conducted by Sim alongside Daegon Cho also of KAIST, and called ‘Virus Shook the Streaming Star: Estimating the COVID-19 Impact on Music Consumption’. It determined the nature of changes by looking at the streaming data for top songs for two years in 60 countries, as well as COVID-19 case and lockdown statistics and daily mobility data in those areas.

Telang of Heinz College at CMU said "Despite the common expectation that the pandemic would universally benefit online media platforms, we found that it adversely impacted music streaming services, our findings imply that the substantially changing media consumption environment can put streaming music in a fiercer competition against other media forms that offer more dynamic and vivid experiences to consumers."
