Percent of song listened to

Here's the first one, showing what percent of listeners listen to what percent of a given song. It shows Nearly a quarter of all songs on Spotify get skipped within five seconds of starting. More than a third are skipped within 30 seconds. Nearly half of all songs are skipped at some point. 

"The plot shows the rather steep drop off in listeners in the early part of a song when most listeners are deciding whether or not to skip the song," Lamere writes.
