Spotify's year in review
Spotify recently shared the most streamed artists and songs worldwide. While many of the names on lists were pretty expected—yes, we listened to a lot of Drake and Post Malone—, the top growing genre surprised us.
According to the service, emo rap is the genre that grew the most on the platform. Indeed, “EMO Rap” tops the list for growing genres, while the aforementioned Aub and Posty line up with the late XXXTENTACION in dominating the tunes the world heard on Spotify in the big one-eight.
If you're still confused about what exactly emo rap is, other artists on the list are Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Xan, lil aaron and the late Lil Peep. Its scope resides in close proximity to that of so-called “SoundCloud rap” and other hip-hop offshoots.
As for most-streamed tracks, Drake’s hit “God’s Plan” takes the number one place. X’s “SAD!” and Post Malone’s firecracker 21 Savage collab “rockstar” complete the top 3. The “android from the future” and the catchy thesis subject also nab top album honors.
Imagine Dragons earn the distinction of the most-streamed group on Spotify in 2018, joining runners-up BTS, Maroon 5, Migos and Coldplay. (Coldplay was the most-streamed group on the platform in 2017, it’s noted.)
