Who Is Spotify’s Most Streamed Artist of 2022?

It’s everyone’s favorite time of the year – Spotify Wrapped has officially come out and we now know who won the top spot for most-streamed artist on Spotify!

When it comes to musical artists, on a global level, Bad Bunny and Harry Styles battled it out for the top spot across many of the categories. The Puerto Rican rapper Bad Bunny, who has become a global phenomenon, clinched the number one most-streamed artist for the third year running, and his album “Un Verano Sin Ti” was the most-streamed album of the year.

Harry’s single, “As It Was”, was the most-streamed song of the year, while “Harry’s House” took home second-place in terms of streaming. And of course, hot off the release of “Midnights”, Taylor Swift was amongst the top ranks in many categories – including being the number two most-streamed artist of the year and being the number one in the “Most Viral Artists Globally” category.

And as a reminder – Wrapped isn’t just about the Top Lists!  Wrapped is a beloved Spotify feature that summarizes a user’s listening habits from January through the end of November, using fun graphics and stats such as top five artist and songs, total minutes listened, and fun things like a user’s “listening vibe”.

And for those who count down the days until Wrapped every year, now is the time to see how many times you streamed “Harry’s House”, where you landed on the Swiftie scale (did you crack the top 0.5% of listeners??), or whether that one random song you were obsessed with for a week ended up skewing your whole Wrapped results.

Whether your Wrapped was accurate, cringey, or an indie-ridden list you can brag to your friends about (“What do you mean you’ve never heard of this band??”), what makes today fun is seeing how yours compares to your friends too!

What did you stream the most!? Drop a comment!
