Juice WRLD was Ireland’s most streamed artist on Spotify in 2020

Words: Dylan Murphy

Evidently, people have been in their feels in 2020.

As we come to the end of 2020 the internet is being flooded with lists, reviews and examinations of the best and worst of everything to emerge in difficult year.

A recent addition to the zeitgeisty end of year discussion was the emergence of “Spotify Wrapped”. It sees the app reveal the listening habits of users across the world, showing subscribers their most listened to acts of the year.

Ahead of the 2020 of Spotify Wrapped, the streaming service shared the most popular acts, albums and songs from across the globe.

Bad Bunny topped the global streaming charts in 2020 with over 8.3 billion streams. The Puerto Rican rapper was closely followed by Drake in second, J Balvin in third, Juice WRLD inn forth and The Weeknd in fifth.

The most streamed song of the year was the Weeknd’s ‘Blinding Lights’ with just short of 1.6 billion streams.

With over 3.3billion streams Bad Bunny’s YHLQMDLG was the most streamed album of the year.

Looking closer to home, Juice WRLD was the most listened to artist in Ireland, followed by Drake Dermot Kennedy, Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande.

The results follow the unfortunate passing of Juice WRLD earlier this year.
