Instagram launched its first dedicated community. Behind the username @Music, Instagram has created a community for music lovers which aims to highlight both well-known and up-and-coming music artists from around the world.
Instagram has always known how to play its artistic and creative side. But with this new community dedicated to the love of music, Instagram is going a step further by showing a different side of the artists and musicians, as explained in an official blog post:

Instagram also explained that the account will feature 6 posts per week, including 3 different series:
- – #LocallySourced featuring unsigned artists
- – #DoubleTrack featuring artist interest outside of music
- – #15SecondLessons featuring how-to videos
The first two artists to be featured on @Music are Questlove and Ikkyu Nakajima, both keen social media users and great music artists. The posts take followers through their journey so far and their love affair with music, always providing an insider look, in the way Instagram gained its reputation for.
After 1 day and only 3 posts, the account has already 19,000 followers. My guess is that it will reach a million follower pretty fast and prove that @Music is a clever move by Instagram.
Who do you suggest should be next to be featured on Instagram’s @Music?
