Spotify users have been patiently waiting for their 2021 Wrapped experience like a holiday gift — and it seems Bad Bunny was the gift that kept on giving! On Dec. 1, the streaming service announced that the Puerto Rican reggaeton artist is the 2021 Top Global Artist for having the most-streamed songs (9.1 billion to be exact!) of any musician on the platform. In other words, Bad Bunny is officially the reigning Spotify King! In 2020, he was also the Top Global Artist with over eight million streams. Let's hope we get a follow-up to YHLQMDLG soon! The people clearly want it.

Who Are The Top 5 Most Streamed Artists on Spotify in 2021?

Behind Bad Bunny, Taylor Swift is the second most-streamed artist globally and the most-streamed artist of 2021. Clearly, I'm not the only one who liked Red (Taylor's Version)? Not to mention all the versions of "All Too Well (Taylor's Version)." K-pop band BTS took the third spot and fellow Canadians Drake and Justin Bieber were the fourth and fifth, respectively, most-streamed artists globally. Not too shabby!
