It’s Spotify Wrapped season, and users of the streaming platform are eagerly comparing their app-generated roundups of their most listened music in 2022. One artist that quite a few Spotify users will have in common is Bad Bunny, who for the third year in a row was the most-streamed artist across the entire platform worldwide.
B.B. racked up an astonishing 18.5 billion streams globally this year. In second place came Taylor Swift, followed by Drake, The Weeknd in fourth place, and BTS in fifth. Un Verano Sin Ti, Bad Bunny’s 2020 project, was the year’s most streamed album with Harry’s House by Harry Styles taking the silver medal. Rounding out the top 5 were Olivia Rodrigo’s Sour, Ed Sheeran’s =, and Doja Cat’s Planet Her, all projects released in 2021.
As for individual tracks, Styles’ single “As It Was,” however, was Spotify’s most streamed song of 2022. The inescapable, intensely annoying “Heat Waves” by Glass Animals was No. 2, and “Stay” by The Kid Laroi and Justin Bieber was the third most-streamed. Two songs by Bad Bunny, “Me Porto Bonito” and “Tití Me Preguntó,” were numbers 4 and 5, respectively.
