Spotify Wrapped: Taylor, Bad Bunny, Lana… the most listened to of 2023

Spotify has published its lists with the most listened to music of 2023. Taylor Swift tops the global list in what has definitely been another great year for her career, if not the most important of all, thanks to the tremendous commercial reception of ‘Midnights’ (2022), to the great acceptance of his re-recorded albums and, above all, to the success of ‘The Eras Tour’, his mammoth world tour, which arrives in Spain next year.

Next is Bad Bunny, clearly the current “King of Pop” whether Forbes says it or not, who appears on the list at number 2, followed by The Weeknd in third place, Drake in fourth and Peso Pluma, the great revelation of the year, in the fifth. Lana Del Rey appears in tenth place even though her excellent last album has not given her the best numbers of her career. Her catalog continues to move the masses.

Officially, the most successful song of 2023 on Spotify is ‘Flowers’ by Miley Cyrus. SZA’s ‘Kill Bill’ salutes second. Inexhaustible, ‘As it Was’ by Harry Styles appears in third position, despite the fact that it was already the number 1 hit of 2022. Completing the top 5 are ‘Seven’ by Jung Kook with Latto and ‘Ella Baila Sola’ by Eslabón Armado and Featherweight. Taylor Swift is the only artist in the top 10 to have two hits, these are ‘Cruel Summer’ and ‘Anti-Hero’.

The most listened to album of 2023 is the same as the one that crowned the 2022 list, ‘Un Verano sin ti’ by Bad Bunny, despite the fact that the Puerto Rican has released a new album this year, ‘No one knows what is going to happen tomorrow ‘. ‘Midnights’ comes in second place. Expected are the inclusions of ‘Mañana Sera Bonito’ by Karol G or ‘SOS’ by SZA. ‘Lover’ by Taylor Swift appears on the list probably boosted by the late success of ‘Cruel Summer’, and ‘Starboy’ by The Weeknd, a 2016 album, also sneaks into the top 10, thanks to the fact that some of its songs are not They have stopped going viral in the last year.

That the United States is the country with the majority of listeners subscribed to Spotify is reflected in the good position achieved by ‘One Thing at a Time’ by Morgan Wallen. This has been the most listened to album of 2023 in the United States, and on the global chart it appears in sixth position despite the fact that Wallen, a country singer, is barely familiar to us in the rest of the planet.
