Spotify Reveals Its Most-Played Artists Of 2017


New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Spotify reveals its annual Year in Music lists, showing the top artists, albums, tracks and moments that made 2017 such an amazing year for music fans. Spotify can reveal that Ed Sheeran is the most streamed artist of 2017 globally, and remains the #1 most streamed artist on Spotify with 47 million monthly listeners.

Ed Sheeran's ÷ (Divide) was the most streamed album of the year worldwide with 3.1 billion streams, and 'Shape of You' became the most streamed track of all time on Spotify, now with over 1.4 billion streams.

"Ed Sheeran absolutely dominated this year with the release of his record-breaking album, Divide," said Stefan Blom, Spotify's Chief Content Officer. "There is no doubt that 2017 was The Year of Ed Sheeran, and we are thrilled that so many millions of music fans have discovered, listened to, and shared his music on Spotify. Congratulations to Ed on an amazing achievement."

Despite Ed Sheeran's huge success this year, Hip Hop continues to play a major role in music listening around the world. Overall, Hip Hop listening increased 74% over the past year according to Spotify data - a significant increase, particularly considering Hip Hop's popularity in 2016.

In what was a landmark year for Latin music, its listening increased by 110%, with two Latin tracks hitting #1 on Spotify for the first time: 'Despacito' and 'Mi Gente', as well as 10 Latin songs appearing on Spotify's Global Top 50. 'Despacito - Remix' by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee featuring Justin Bieber was named Spotify's 'Song of the Summer,' showing the culture's reach. Yankee also held the #1 position on Spotify in July - a first for a Latin artist.
