Spotify's Top Artists Of 2016

By  December 29, 2016

 

Spotify has revealed 2016's top artists and we're thrilled to see so many of our favourites make it to the lists.

Here are some of our favourites and more notable picks!

 

Drake

Drake's love life this year may not flourished as well as he probably would've hoped (with Rihanna in particular), but at least his numbers of Spotify are! The rapper was crowned as the world's most streamed artist and his album, Views, that was dropped in April was also the most streamed abum of the year. And how many times was 2016's top hit a.k.a. One Dance streamed? 970 million times. 

 

Ariana Grande

Ariana Grande emerged as the most streamed female artist in Singapore and second in the world just behind Rihanna!

 
 

Twenty One Pilots

I can't even begin to describe how proud I feel of Twenty One Pilots for being the 4th most streamed artist in the world. Their 2015 album, Blurryface, also deservingly made it as one of 2016's most streamed albums!

 

Fifth Harmony

How apt is it that Fifth Harmony is 2016's 5th most streamed female artist in both Singapore and across the globe???

 

ZAYN

The stats have proven that Zayn is on the right direction for going solo. The ex-One Direction member was named as the year's top breakout artist!

 

Rihanna

Rihanna is 2016's was not only the top R&B artist, but also the most streamed female artist in the world with over 2.5 billion streams to her name!

 

Panic! At The Disco

I would say that it's been a long time since Panic! At The Disco deviated from their roots in the emo genre, so the fact that they were this year's top emo artist probably shows that many people have been reminiscing of the early 2000s this year!
