The multi-faceted Puerto Rican artist Bad Bunny continued his winning streak and took first place again this year.
The Guardian reported that the Puerto Rican singer’s songs have been streamed 9.1 billion times this year, up from 8.3 billion in 2020. The report also shed light on the growth of the streaming market as well as Bunny’s fame.
The artist retained his first place despite the fact that he did not release a new album in 2021. His last studio albums “YHLQMDLG” and “El Ãltimo Tour del Mundo” were released in 2020.
âI don’t like to be the number one most broadcast artist. I just make music. I just love my ‘job’, âBad Bunny shared with BBC.
Following him, singer-songwriter Taylor Swift, whose new version of âRedâ released this year caused a stir and was greeted with open arms by his fans.
Third place was held by South Korean boy band BTS, whose single “Butter” increased their popularity.
The others on the list
Rapper-singer Drake and singer Justin Bieber occupied the fourth and fifth places.
Drake released his studio album “Certified Lover Boy” in September 2021 and is also the # 1 Performing Artist in the United States this year.
2021 has been a pretty eventful year for Bieber as he collaborated with various talented artists around the world for his popular studio album âJusticeâ. The song ‘Peaches’ on this album received a lot of love. The album was also the third most streamed album on Spotify globally.
