It's Here: The Top Songs, Artists, Podcasts, and Listening Trends of 2022

30/11/2022

There's no single way to define what a year 2022 has been. Coming back after a few years of uncertainty has led each of us to create a new normal in our relationships to culture-and to each other. This year, Spotify listeners especially took the chance to redefine how they find joy. And now, it's time to unveil what the world collectively delighted in and obsessed over with Spotify's 2022 Wrapped.

From the music that makes us dance to the podcasts that keep us riveted, this is the audio that bubbled to the top of Spotify listeners' playlists.

The top global artists of 2022 It's a three-peat for global recording artist Bad Bunny. The singer-songwriter is the year's most-streamed artist in the world on Spotify-a spot he's held since 2020. No other artist has ever accomplished the feat before, so to celebrate, we've turned the heart button on Spotify into the singer's custom red-heart icon.

Taylor Swift held true to her invitation to meet her at midnight, and it propelled her to become the second-most-streamed artist of the year globally-and the top artist in Australia, the U.K., Ireland, Malaysia, the Philippines, New Zealand, Qatar, Slovenia, and Singapore. Rounding out the top five artists are the two very familiar Toronto powerhouses Drake and The Weeknd, along with K-Pop band BTS.

Plenty of artists had their worlds rocked this year by the power of social media. The most viral artists were those who had their music most frequently shared to social platforms from Spotify. Taylor Swift's Midnights release certainly got the world talking, and she claims the top spot as the most viral artist globally. The second-place position goes to The Weeknd, followed by Bad Bunny. Rounding out spots four and five are BTS and Lana Del Rey.

The top global songs of 2022 Song of the summer 2022 creator Harry Styles takes the coveted honor of having the most-streamed song around the globe with his hit As It Was. British indie rock band Glass Animals' track Heat Waves is the second-most-streamed song of 2022, and fans just can't get enough. Australian artist The Kid LAROI's collab with Justin Bieber on STAY is the third-most-streamed song of the year. Bad Bunny's Me Porto Bonito feat. Chencho Corleon and Tit Me Pregunt take spots four and five, respectively.

The top global albums of 2022 So what collective body of work, in album form, was streamed most in 2022? From Spanish to English, pop to hip-hop, listeners around the world showed a variety of tastes. Bad Bunny's Un Verano Sin Ti takes the top spot for most-streamed album globally for 2022. Harry Styles Harry's House comes in at number two. Olivia Rodrigo's debut album, SOUR, takes the third spot for most-streamed album. British pop superstar Ed Sheeran's album = continues to be a fan favorite at number four. And finally, American rapper and singer Doja Cat's album Planet Her (Deluxe) grabs the fifth spot.

The top global podcasts of 2022 This year, Spotify's podcast offerings expanded into new markets, providing more listeners around the world with new shows to binge. With more than four million podcasts, the platform offers something for every type of podcast listener. But what shows especially made their mark in 2022? Globally, the most popular podcast for the third year running is The Joe Rogan Experience. Call Her Daddy, from host Alex Cooper, takes the spot for second-most popular podcast. Anything Goes with Emma Chamberlain, a soon-to-be-Spotify Exclusive touching on a variety of topics from the popular American creator, takes the third spot, while Caso 63, a Spotify Original podcast that's debuted in Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Hindi, and English takes the fourth spot with all its language iteration feeds combined. Crime Junkie, a true-crime podcast from Ashley Flowers and Brit Prawat, rounds out the list as the fifth-most popular podcast.

The global trends that shaped our year These most-streamed artists, songs, albums, and podcasts weren't the only guideposts that shaped our year. There were also audio trends on Spotify that brought people together through laughter, amusement, and enjoyment.

Nostalgia remains a staple in our listeners' queues.

This year, Spotify fans were all about the aesthetic.

After two years of pandemic postponement, 2022 was the year for many to finally say, I do.

Little Miss, the British children's book character, made a resurgence in 2022 with fill-in-the-blank-style memes. May we suggest Little Miss can't stop posting her Wrapped results ?

But a new topic that surprised everyone was corn, thanks to corn kid.

And, of course, our listeners really know their shows and movies.

And their memes.
