Spotify unveiled on December 1, 2020, the top artists, albums, songs — and for the first time in the Philippines, podcasts that defined how 320 million people around the world listened and discovered audio in 2020.

“It’s been a year to remember—being physically apart for so long, yet somehow finding ways to come together as a resilient community. As the year comes to a close, Spotify 2020 Wrapped celebrates the creators behind the music and podcasts that kept us going throughout all 700 months of this year. Whether it was to stay informed, sing along, or simply tune it all out, people kept listening and creators never missed a beat,” according to Spotify.

Here is the Spotify Wrapped 2020 round-up for the Philippines:

MUSIC

This year, Pinoy artists are reigning on Spotify’s most-streamed lists with 9-piece indie-folk band Ben&Ben emerging as the Philippines’ most-streamed artist of the year. Their album, LIMASAWA STREET is the Philippines’ third most-streamed album of 2020.

Ben&Ben is followed by BTS, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, and BLACKPINK, who round off the top five most-streamed artists in the Philippines.

Philippines’ most-streamed song of 2020 is local alt-rock band Magnus Haven’s anthemic track “Imahe”, followed by Justin Bieber’s “Intentions” and Ben&Ben’s “Make It With You” in the second and third spots respectively.

2020 has also seen the once-niche Pinoy hip-hop genre emerge to become a mainstream staple for many in the Philippines. Matthaios, the artist behind the viral hit “Catriona”, is the third most-streamed local artist in the Philippines this year. The late artist Emman’s soulful hip-hop single “Teka Lang” also came in fourth on the most-streamed local songs list.
