Which Song Had The Most Spotify Streams In 2019? You Might Be Surprised! (HINT: It’s Not Old Town Road)
We’re coming up on the end of the year. Heck, the end of the decade. It’s hard to believe, but we are just one month away from entering 2020.
Spotify is celebrating the end of the decade by releasing some streaming statistics. According to their recent report, the most-streamed song of the year was Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello’s hit track, ‘Señorita!‘
And honestly, that’s a little surprising. Yeah, it was hot summer song, but the most streamed of the year? We thought that award would go to Lil Nas X’s Old Town Road or Billie Eilish’s Bad Guy.
Both songs did make the top five though.
- Señorita! – 1 billion streams
- Bad Guy – 900 million
- Post Malone’s ‘Sunflower’
- Ariana Grande’s ‘7 Rings’
- Old Town Road
Old Town Road making the top five is certainly impressive, considering Lil Nas X was basically just a meme creator on Twitter just one year ago, and his collaborator Billy Ray Cyrus hadn’t been relevant since Hannah Montana.
What about the decade? What was the most-streamed song of the decade? Well, that award goes to Ed Sheeran’s ‘Shape of You‘ track, which has over 2 billion streams.
While the English singer got the song of the decade title, he’s only the second-most streamed artist of the decade. Spotify’s top artist of the entire decade is Drake, whose music was played over 28 billion times. In third place is Post Malone, in fourth is Grande and Eminem is fifth.
Post Malone was Spotify’s most-streamed artist of 2019, followed by Eilish and Ariana Grande.
All those streams and they probably made like $10 from it.
