Ed Sheeran loses his top spot after three years in a row.
Despite the constant competition from musicians such as Apple Music, Tidal, Google Play and the likes of vinyl, Spotify remains the undisputed king of music streaming services.
The app, born in Sweden in 2018, has been declining since 2018, giving us an insight into what our little country is up to.
Surprise at the top is Aussies There's been a lot more country music than ever before and the list of the world's third-biggest Yeehaw fans, right behind the US and Canada, has been thrown up. While there are no further explanations in the report about how and why this happened, I think we can safely cross that with the impact of a particular Miss Kylie Minogue.
"Golden", fucking beat, fight me, however, hip-shop and rap again dominated our streams, with three of the five most streamed artists of the year, Drake, Post Malone and XXXTENTACION (ugh gross), all dating back to the Genre came, which, thanks to a huge range, reached a new high point inflow of so-called Soundcloud rappers.
Canadian hip-hop star Drake was the most streamed artist for Australians this year. He finished Ed Sheeran's three-year run at the top and honored most streaming games with "God's Plan." Post Malone has packed the gong for the most streamed album, with Beerbongs & Bentleys which undoubtedly appeals to our deep-seated adoration for binge drinking and cars.
Unfortunately not too many women have been seen this year. fronted leads the list of spotifys. After the guys are picked out of the statistics, Ariana, Taylor and Dua Lipa are proud to be the most streamed artists in Australia, with Sia, Julia Stone and Amy Shark being the three biggest local streaming ladies.
More tidbits from the review can be found here 5 Seconds of Summer maintain a healthy premise in our country's headphones, our mothers and fathers are still frothing Fleetwood Mac on a regular basis, and (how is that?) Spotify's most streamed release herself was a live recording of the buddy's daughter, which she has made the TV show Scrubs . Yes, that's a real statistic.
