Taylor Swift may have inadvertently crashed Ticketmaster with the Eras Tour, but she’s actually not the biggest artist of 2022, according to Spotify.
This honor goes to bad bunny, who topped the music streaming service’s annual list of the most streamed global artists of the year. According to data from the Spotify Wrapped campaign released on Nov. 30, the “Party” rapper generated more than 18.5 billion streams in the past 11 months, double the amount he received in 2021. This feat impressive means he is the defending champion for the third year. in a row.
However, Taylor isn’t left out of the lavender haze either. The pop star ranks second, making her the most streamed female artist of the year, while Duck, The weekend and BTS complete the top 5 list.
And as someone who literally broke a chunk of the internet, it’s no surprise that Spotify considers the “Anti-Hero” singer the most viral artist of the year. According to the audio streamer, Taylor was the most frequently shared musician by listeners on other social media platforms in 2022.
