BTS is Spotify’s most-streamed group in 2021


BTS continues to dominate music streaming charts, as the K-pop mega-group was just hailed as Spotify’s most-streamed group for 2021.

Spotify’s reveal came as part of this year’s Spotify Wrapped, an annual wrap-up of the most streamed artists, groups, albums, songs, playlists, and podcasts in the music streaming platform for the entire year.

The lists, shared by Spotify on December 2, show BTS bagging the top spot in its most-streamed groups globally for 2021. The group is followed by Maroon 5 and Imagine Dragons in the second and third place respectively, as well as One Direction and Queen in the fourth and fifth spots.

BTS ARMY in the Philippines went all out in showing support for Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook, as their idols also emerged as the Top Streamed Artist in the country, overtaking Taylor Swift, Justin Beiber, Ben Ben, and Ariana Grande.

At the same time, the Asian boy band has become Spotify’s third most-streamed artist on the platform globally for 2021, bested only by Puerto Rican rapper-songwriter Bad Bunny and American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift.

Other artists completing the Top 10 list (in descending order) are Drake, Justin Bieber, The Weeknd, J Balvin, Ariana Grande, Olivia Rodrigo, and Juice WRLD.
