Spotify 2021 Wrapped Global Top Lists

Bad Bunny most-streamed artist on Spotify for second year running

The Puerto Rican star beats Taylor Swift and Drake, while Olivia Rodrigo continues meteoric rise as Spotify and Apple Music announce stats

Spotify and Apple Music, the two biggest players in music streaming, have announced the tracks and albums that have been the most popular globally in 2021 (in the period 1 January to 27 November).

For a second year in a row, the most-streamed artist on Spotify is the Puerto Rican vocalist Bad Bunny, whose songs were streamed a total of 9.1bn times, compared with 8.3bn in 2020 – a mark of how the streaming market continues to grow alongside the singer and rapper’s popularity. After releasing two studio albums and a compilation in 2020, Bad Bunny released a series of singles in 2021 including the US Top 10 hit Yonaguni. He is followed by Taylor Swift, Drake, Justin Bieber and BTS in the Top 5 most-streamed artists.

The 18-year-old Californian pop star Olivia Rodrigo had the most-streamed song and album globally on Spotify, following the phenomenal success of her debut album Sour. Little known at the start of the year beyond teen fans of her acting, a series of variously angry and melancholy hits about love and teenage angst made her one of the world’s biggest pop stars – she is the only artist to be nominated in all the “big four” categories at the 2022 Grammy awards.

Her breakup ballad Drivers License topped the Spotify list with 1.1bn streams, and was second to BTS’s Dynamite on Apple Music’s list of most-streamed songs. Rodrigo also appears at No 4 in Spotify’s global list with the pop-punk song Good 4 U, which was the top song in the UK on both Spotify and Apple Music.

Lil Nas X’s Montero (Call Me By Your Name), The Kid Laroi & Justin Bieber’s Stay, and Dua Lipa’s Levitating filled out the rest of the Top 5 on Spotify’s global list, while Ariana Grande’s Positions, Pop Smoke’s For the Night and the Weeknd’s Blinding Lights appeared on Apple’s.

Lipa’s 2020 album Future Nostalgia also remained popular this year, and was the second-most streamed album on Spotify, followed by full-lengths from Justin Bieber, Ed Sheeran and Doja Cat.

In the UK, where Bad Bunny’s popularity is considerably lower than elsewhere, Drake is the most-streamed artist on Spotify. Both globally and in the UK, The Joe Rogan Experience was the most popular podcast of the year.

DJ Moore Kismet Uses Spotify Artist Wrapped To Learn About Their Fans—and Themself

Wrapped isn’t just for fans—it’s for creators too. And today, Spotify for Artists launched its annual 2021 Artist Wrapped microsite, presenting artists with a custom experience and sharecard showcasing their success on Spotify over the past year. It’s a moment created specially for artists, who can also be delighted by a year’s worth of streaming data driven by their fans worldwide.

On the microsite, artists can view their total hours streamed; increases in followers, total listeners, streams, or playlist adds; total numbers of top listeners and shares; and information showing the journey of an artist’s top track. This year, artists can also enjoy an Audio Aura that gives them their own aura based on elements of their artwork and sonics; a Throwback Track that showcases their top catalog track that is still streaming strong; and a list of all their collaborators.

You’ve been on Spotify since about 2018. When did you start looking at your Artist Wrapped?

Right away. I first started because I saw everybody else posting theirs and I was like, “Damn, they have all of these insane streaming numbers! I wonder what mine is.” And then when I went to check, I only had like 3,000. Well that’s anticlimactic! It was kind of disappointing at first. But I’ve been checking every year ever since, especially once I started working on myself, working on my music, and working with Anthony, my manager.

I would honestly have to say that this year is the biggest year I’ve had and I’m really, really, really grateful for that because I was not expecting anything that I released this year to do well or to have as much of an impact on people. I hit my first two million streams this year. “Rumor” is on its way to hitting three million, which is f%#*ing crazy because it hit two million quicker than it hit one million.
What type of information have you been able to take away from previous years of Artist Wrapped and then utilize as you go into the next year of work?

Pre-saves, monthly listeners, streams, and followers. Those are the four most important things that I take into consideration every year when I look at my Wrapped. But also, growth is growth. It’s such a crazy feeling to see how far you’ve come since the last time you got one of these things rendered for you.

I also love seeing demographics—like the pie split up—of what specific demographics or gender identities are listening to my music. I’m noticing that the genderqueer categories are starting to grow exponentially, which makes me incredibly happy because I write my music for other queer people. I’ve always tried to do my best to make my Black ancestors and my trans ancestors proud, and it gets hard sometimes when I’m feeling down on myself and my body and my music, and my mind and my ability to do things.

So I guess I really just try to make sure that people know that I’m doing this for me, and if you resonate with it, then more power to you. Because I wrote it from the perspective of millions of other queer people who feel the same way. So to see that transfer over into my music and how it performs on Spotify, it’s just incredible.

Why are you excited for 2021 Artist Wrapped?

I’m really excited to see how much everything has changed since 2020. I really am. And you know, every year I check Wrapped because it’s a way to see how much progress you’ve made as an artist on a public platform that can literally make or break your career.

I’d always been very cognizant of what I was trying to put out into the world up until quarantine. Quarantine was when I realized that I should stop giving a fu%k about other people’s expectations about who I am and what I write for myself and my own mental well-being. I’m just really excited to see how my sudden change of not caring about negligent people’s feelings has translated into the way that people listen to my music and how much people have listened to my music this year.

It’s really great to get messages from listeners, fans, supporters, and everyone else in between telling me, “Your music has changed my life,” because getting into music and writing music in the first place has changed my life.

What should the world look forward to from Moore Kismet in 2022?

2022 is the year of the f%#$ing Kismet. Next year, my debut album, Universe, is coming out, hopefully in summer. But of course, everything is still tentative. I’m hoping it can be out during Pride month. That is our goal. I have been working on this for the past four years, and I am so unbelievably excited to show people. I’ve been working with some of my best friends—some of the coolest writers in the world. This is the biggest thing coming out from Moore Kismet to date.

Spotify’s Wrapped 2021 arrives with artist video messages, Blend, and even a game

Spotify’s anticipated year-end retrospective, Spotify Wrapped, is rolling out today to consumers, artists and podcast creators.

The experience offers Spotify users a look back at their year on Spotify, highlighting listening trends across both music and podcasts. Artists and creators, meanwhile, can check in on all the ways their fans listened. This year, Wrapped has undergone a few changes. This includes the addition of new features like Wrapped Blend, which lets you compare your Wrapped with a friend’s, plus support for TikTok sharing, a new in-app Wrapped game, video messages from artists to fans, and more.

Spotify will also bring its live audio chatroom app, Spotify Greenroom, into the Wrapped experience this year with live shows from select artists.

Spotify Wrapped 2021

Typically, Spotify Wrapped offers a look back at your top songs, artists, podcasts, and other listening trends from over the past year.

But this time around, Spotify will present some of Wrapped’s data as cinematic snapshots — that is, you’ll be presented with “2021: The Movie,” which pairs your recognizable songs against key moments and scenes from a movie, such as the opening credits, a fight scene, an intense montage, a face-off with a rival dance crew, and others.
