Here's how many listeners your favorite artists had on Spotify in 2020

Snow on the ground and colder weather may signify the end of the year for many, but for music fans, nothing highlights the closing of each year better than the Spotify Wrapped feature. And while we all love seeing how much we listened to our favorite artists, those artists might just love it even more.

Spotify‘s most streamed musician this year was Bad Bunny, with 8.3 billion streams globally. Drake and J Balvin came in second and third, respectively, with Juice WRLD in fourth and the Weeknd in fifth. Billie Eilish is Spotify’s top-streamed female artist globally once again. But what about some of our other faves over at Alternative Press?

This morning, Spotify for Artists unveiled its 2020 Artist Wrapped feature. While listeners are now able to enjoy Spotify’s  2020 Wrapped personalized experience, including new in-app quizzes and even a fresh “Missed Hits” playlist, artists can now check out how their fans have been enjoying their year of music. And so far today, alt artists have proudly shared their streams throughout 2020. Do any of these surprise you?

Boston Manor

Boston Manor dropped their third album, GLUE, back in May. And it doesn’t seem like fans were limited to just their home base of England, either.

You Me At Six

You Me At Six reached 92 countries this year after, likely in part due to the release of November’s “SUCKAPUNCH,” the title track to their forthcoming album.

Breathe Carolina

Breathe Carolina hope they added some light to a “trash year,” and for 16.5 million listeners, that seems to be the case. They shared DEADTHEREMIXES back in April and “Promises” in November.

Hot Mulligan


Hot Mulligan had quite the year, with 19 million total streams globally. They have their March release, you’ll be fine, to thank for that.

Lil Peep

Genre-blending titan Lil Peep‘s popularity was undeniable this year. The re-release of his 2016 Hellboy mixtape helped Peep earn 1.8 billion total streams globally.


It’s also been quite the year for Silverstein. With the help of both Redux II and A Beautiful Place To Down, the group earned a whopping 82.4 million streams in 2020.

The Dangerous Summer

The Dangerous Summer had a “gigantic year,” indeed. Their 16-track Live In Baltimore 2019 project and several singles including “Fuck Them All” were likely a huge part of that.


To nobody’s surprise, blink-182 had an exceptional year. They earned nearly 10 million more streams than last year, bringing them to 694.2 million. Their August release “Quarantine” likely helped.

Cane Hill

Metal favorites Cane Hill are leaving the year with 3.7 million streams behind them. In October, they dropped their single “Power Of The High.”

Enter Shikari

Enter Shikari are closing out 2020 with 57.3 million streams on their resume. They dropped Nothing Is True & Everything Is Possible back in April.

Lil Lotus

 Lil Lotus had a successful year with 1.3 million listeners, thanks to his August release, All My Little Scars, Vol. 3.


Movements made some major moves in 2020, with 27.2 million streams to their names. They dropped their new album, No Good Left To Give, back in September.

Meet Me @ The Altar

With only two songs out this year, AP digital cover stars Meet Me @ The Altar‘s breakout success earned them a solid million streams.

With a string of successful 2020 singles, grandson had a massive year and earned over 280 million streams.

Asking Alexandria

With the success of May’s Like A House On Fire, Asking Alexandria capped off 2020 with 187.3 million Spotify streams.

The Acacia Strain

The Acacia Strain released Slow Decay back in July, which helped bring their music to 91 countries this year.

Four Year Strong

Four Year Strong end this year strongly, with February’s Brain Pain helping them earn 30.2 million streams.

Senses Fail

Senses Fail had a pretty big year and announced that they have some big news coming for 2021.


Afterlife are also promising big things in 2021 after a year of 1.8 million streams, thanks to their September single “Wasting Time.”


2020 was a big year for blackbear fans, with the release of his fifth studio album, everything means nothing.  So the 1.5 billion streams totally make sense here, also thanks to some major collabs.

The Word Alive

The Word Alive‘s February release MONOMANIA helped them finish 2020 strong, with a massive 39 million streams.


Even without a new record on Spotify this year, Beartooth ended 2020 with an impressive 83 million streams.

Demi Lovato

With her October Marshmello collab, “OK Not To Be OK,” Demi Lovato ended 2020 with 1.2 billion streams to her name.

Knuckle Puck

Knuckle Puck had a major year, earning 22.6 million streams, thanks to September’s 20/20.
