Taylor Swift Was The Second Most-Streamed Artist On Spotify In 2021

According to Apple Music and Spotify data, Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, and Bad Bunny were among the most-streamed musicians in 2021.

Olivia Rodrigo, a UK relative unknown, earned the top spot, with her punk-pop anthem Good 4U being the most-streamed song on both sites.

Her debut single, Drivers License, was the most streamed song on Spotify worldwide

BTS’s sleek pop was chosen by Apple’s audience, with their single Dynamite becoming the year’s most-played song.

The song, which was released in 2020, did not chart on Spotify, most likely because the streaming service only recently arrived in the band’s home nation of South Korea.

Dua Lipa’s Future Nostalgia disco-pop trajectory became the second most-streamed album on Spotify, trailing Olivia Rodrigo’s Sour.

Ed Sheeran’s earworm Bad Habits, released expressly for a summer of absolute leisure, was the third most popular song on Spotify in 2021.

However, it ranked 53rd on Apple’s list, indicating that the service is more popular in the US.

Bad Habits surpassed its global position as the third most-streamed song of the year in Sheeran’s home nation, with Apple’s UK listeners rallying behind him.

The charts, however, were gathered too early for Adele to make an impact. Her comeback single, Easy On Me, failed to chart in the Top 100 on Apple.

With one month left in 2021, the celebrity might easily make the top ten. Her fourth studio album, 30, has already become the best-selling record of the year in the United States after only one week on the market.

According To Spotify, The Year’s Most Popular Artist Overall Was Puerto Rican Rapper Bad Bunny, Who Had 9.1 Billion Streams

“I’m not interested in being the most-streamed musician,” the 27-year-old said after learning of the news. “I only write music. Simply put, I adore my ‘work.'”

Taylor Swift, who released her legendary albums Fearless and Red this year, was Spotify’s second most-played artist, trailing only BTS, Drake, and Justin Bieber.

Spotify and Apple Music account for 48% of the global streaming industry, and successful artists can rack up millions of spins for their most popular songs.

Streaming profits have aided the music industry’s recovery from the piracy problem of the 2000s, with record labels in the United Kingdom earning £736.5 million last year.

However, there has been major controversy about how that money is allocated, with many musicians and composers claiming that when their songs are performed, they earn a pittance.

Earlier this year, a legislative group proposed a “total reset” of the streaming industry, recommending an equal split of money between record companies and artists.

Artists currently receive approximately 16% of their earnings under the present setup.
