If you are a music lover, then you know that Spotify is the perfect platform to share your favorite songs and albums with others. There are a number of different reasons why you may choose to use the service, such as streaming your music online, creating playlists, or even just listening to your favorite songs.
Your most streamed songs
If you use Spotify, then you probably already know that it reveals your most streamed songs at year end. The service will tell you which artists and songs you listen to the most, and you can see it in a table on the site. You can also access the full data by downloading the mobile app.
For the most part, this data is only available between January and October, but there is a special day each year that allows you to check out the full list of most streamed tracks from the previous year. This is known as Spotify Wrapped, and it’s a fun way to check out your favorite artists and genres.
It’s actually not a holiday, but a feature that the music streaming app has been making a point of introducing for years. In addition to the slideshow of your most played artists, you’ll also see the top albums and genres. You’ll even be able to share the results with your friends via Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
In addition to the traditional top 100 list, Spotify has introduced a new feature, called Your Listening Personality. This lets you know whether you’re the top 1% of fans of a particular artist.
In addition to your most streamed songs, you’ll get the top music genres, podcasts, and total minutes you’ve listened to. You’ll be able to use these statistics to create your own personal top lists.
If you use Spotify, you’ve probably noticed that it also provides stats on the most played artists, songs, and albums. You can find out more about these numbers on the company’s website, or on your mobile or PC app.
Most streamed artists
If you’re a music fan, you know that every December Spotify releases a list of the most streamed artists of the year. This list is based on objective data, so a high number of streams does not necessarily indicate a rich, successful artist.
For the first time ever, an artist has topped the most streamed artist list three years in a row. Bad Bunny has earned more than 18.5 billion streams in the last 11 months and has now clinched the title for the third consecutive year.
Another big winner is Harry Styles. His “Harry’s House” leads the UK albums list. His “As It Was” also held the most streamed song of the year and was followed by Dave’s “Starlight” and Sam Fender’s “Seventeen Going Under.”
For the second year in a row, K-pop group BTS rounded out the top five. The group has more than 100 million monthly listeners on Spotify, making them the most listened to artists on the platform.
Kanye West, Drake, and The Weeknd are among the other top artists on the streaming site. In the US, The Weeknd is the most streamed artist, while in Canada, Drake comes in at the top.
The top female artists are Ariana Grande and Taylor Swift. The third and fourth place artists are Ed Sheeran and Bad Habits.
The top ten artists include both K-Pop and legacy artists. For example, Kate Bush was in the Top 10 UK Songs, but isn’t on the list of most streamed artists.
There are a few other notable artists who almost made the Top Ten. These artists were either ranked by a different metric or didn’t make the list at all.
Most streamed albums
This year on Spotify, two albums broke the billion stream mark. This is the first time the platform has tracked such a feat. In fact, it’s the highest rated album ever on the service.
It’s also the highest-rated album in the world. It’s a collaborative effort between 21 Savage and Rich Flex. They released an LP called Her Loss. The album is the first hip-hop record to break the billion stream mark.
There are four artists on the list that are the biggest on the service. In addition to BTS, Taylor Swift, The Weeknd and Bad Bunny are among the top-streamed artists on the platform.
“Stay” by Justin Bieber was the third most listened to song on the platform. The Weeknd’s “Dawn FM” was the fourth most streamed album of the year.
In addition to their streaming success, Taylor Swift and The Weeknd were also named the top-streamed female and male artists of the year. Their albums are also the most listened to on the service.
Interestingly, “Stay” was not the most listened to song on the platform, but it did lead the charts for best song of the year. Similarly, Harry Styles’ “As It Was” was the most listened to song in the world for the year.
Another noteworthy feat was Taylor Swift’s 10th album breaking the record for most streams in a single day. She describes the album as a journey through terror and sweet dreams. It sold more than 1.5 million copies in the U.S. This made her the most listened to female artist on the platform.
Although Drake’s two records didn’t rank as high as the others, he still held the top spot for most listened to artist. His dance-oriented seventh album Honestly, Nevermind is also in the top five.
Most streamed podcasts
There are a number of popular podcasts on Spotify. They range from comedy to frank sex talk, to celebrity interviews. Some are smart and others are just plain fun.
The Joe Rogan Experience is the most streamed podcast on Spotify in the world. The show has 11 million listeners per episode. The show has also been named as the most downloaded in the US in 2020.
“Call Her Daddy” is another podcast that has been gaining popularity on the platform. The show tackles sex advice and millennial culture. This podcast is available in a variety of languages, including Spanish and Hindi. It’s also exclusive to Spotify.
The Wrapped feature of the Spotify app provides a comprehensive list of top podcasts, artists, albums, and songs. It’s a useful tool to get insight into what’s hot on the platform.
Wrapped is a comprehensive analysis of listening trends across the globe. It features a slideshow of the top podcasts, songs, and artists. Users can share the presentation on social media.
The most popular podcast on Spotify in 2022 was Anything Goes. This is a fictional audio series that’s available in English and Spanish. It was also ranked as the first entry on the yearly chart. It’s also available in the original version of Chilean language.
Other notable podcasts include The Daily, TED Talks Daily, and Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard. These are all unique, and each offers something to listeners.
The Wrapped feature of Spotify will continue to offer experiences that showcase the top podcasts, artists, and songs. It will also provide artists with detailed insights into their fan’s Listening Personalities. In the coming years, the Wrapped feature will become a way for artists to build deeper relationships with fans.
TikTok’s impact on the music industry
If you’ve been following the music industry over the past year, you might have wondered what TikTok’s impact will be on the industry in the coming years. The video app, which launched in March 2020, has already influenced the music industry. In addition to offering an outlet for fans to find new music, TikTok is a promotional tool for artists.
The platform has given emerging artists new ways to promote their music. In fact, over 70 artists have made it big on TikTok. In addition to creating a platform for musicians, TikTok’s growth has disrupted the music industry.
In the past, artists had to rely on the record label network to market their songs. But thanks to the rise of TikTok, artists are now in control of their singles.
Artists such as Lil Nas X have used the platform to sell themselves. His hit song, “Old Town Road,” has accumulated more than five hundred million Spotify streams. The song has also reached number one on the Billboard Top 100 chart.
Some have suggested that TikTok has devalued the music industry. But analysts say the platform is still young. They point out that the company is building infrastructure to compete with majors.
One analyst says that in the past, the music industry was driven by a search for undiscovered talent. But the new technology is changing the way we listen to music. Unlike radio, where artists can rely on a playlist to find what they want, TikTok users can browse through a wide variety of music.
A number of top labels are now working to catch up with TikTok. Some of them are holding events such as Marshmellow’s “Halloween vs. Holiday” party.
