2018 is winding down, but on Spotify, the music is playing as loudly as ever. All throughout the year, our users have streamed countless hours of their favorite songs, artists, playlists, and podcasts. Now, we’re looking back to determine the music and audio trends that defined the year.

So, what did Pinoys listen to in 2018?



The most streamed artists in the Philippines include LANY, Moira Dela Torre, Ed Sheeran, BTS, and Maroon 5.

From a global perspective

Spotify can reveal that DRAKE is the most streamed artist of 2018 globally.  With 8.2 billion streams in 2018 alone, the Canadian rapper is Spotify’s most-streamed artist of all time. Following Drake, Post Malone, XXXTENTACION, J Balvin, and Ed Sheeran (Sheeran was the Most Streamed artist of 2017) rounded out the Top 5 list of Most Streamed Artists in the world.

Ariana Grande’s 48 million-plus monthly listeners raised her to the position of Spotify’s most-streamed female artist. Dua Lipa, Cardi B, Taylor Swift and Camila Cabello rounded out the Top 5 Most Streamed Females in the world, respectively.

Hip-hop continued to dominate Spotify’s charts in 2018, but last year’s surge in Latin music continued its incredible growth. Apart from that, EMO Rap and Lo-Fi Beats were two genres that grew the most in 2018.
