As the coronavirus pandemic has restricted most people in the world to their homes, what music they listen to has changed, and so are people’s music habits. We’re listening more music and podcasts as compared to the pre-COVID era as we learn to work from home, spend more time indoors and try to fill an empty house. This was reflected in the Spotify Wrapped 2020.

For those who are unaware, the Spotify Wrapped 2020 shows the latest streaming trends and highlights the most streamed songs, podcasts, and artists. It unveiled that Puerto Rican rapper Bad Bunny was Spotify’s most-streamed artists around the world. He was followed by Drake, J Balvin, Juice WRLD and The Weeknd.

The most-streamed song of the year as per Spotify Wrapped 2020 was Blinding Lights as it had about 1.6 billion streams in 2020. It was released in November 2019. The Spotify Wrapped 2020 also revealed that people have been listening around the biggest news and events of 2020. The Black Lives Matter movement dominated for months in 2020. So, it’s not astonishing to know that the Black Lives Matter Playlist by Spotify had 64 million streams. Also, about 65,000 playlists were created by users that were named as Black Lives Matter or BLM.

The Spotify Wrapped 2020 also mentioned that as more and more people worked from home and practiced social distancing, there was an increase in playlists entitled working from home. Wellness podcasts, gardening playlists and nostalgic playlists were also more than before. There was a 55% increase in Spotify streaming from gaming consoles.

Tones and I had a strong showing on the world stage as per the Spotify Wrapped 2020. Tones and I’s hit Dance Monkey was the second most-streamed song across the world in 2020. Aussie hip hop act, Hilltop Hoods beat others to be the most-streamed artist of the country. Even Dua Lipa made a strong showing in domestic and international stream queues. Joe Rogan also retained his position as the top podcast across the world while getting fourth place in Australia. We are proud of all of them!
