As the year comes down to its final days, streaming services and media outlets will begin releasing their annual end-of-the-year lists. For example, Spotify unveiled the top artists, albums, songs, podcasts, and playlists on the platform.

He was followed by Drake, J Balvin, Juice WRLD, and The Weeknd. Bad Bunny also had the most-streamed global album (YHLQMDLG).

The Weeknd’s After Hours was the second-most streamed album. His smash record “Blinding Lights” led the list of most-streamed songs globally. Roddy Ricch’s “The Box” came in third which was followed by SAINt JHN and Imanbek’s “Roses – Imanbek Remix” at #4.

Billie Eilish was Spotify’s most-streamed global female artist for the year. The rest of the top five included Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, Dua Lipa, and Halsey. Dua Lipa’s Future Nostalgia was the fifth most-streamed album around the world.

When it comes to streaming totals in the United States, Hip Hop acts controlled the top three spots on the list of most-streamed artists. Juice WRLD, Drake, Lil Uzi Vert, Post Malone, and Taylor Swift topped that tally. Megan Thee Stallion was the fifth most-streamed female artist in America.
