Complete list of Spotify’s most streamed musics in 2017

Spotify streaming service has revealed its annual Year in Music lists, showing the top artists, albums, tracks and moments of 2017.

English singer-songwriter, Ed Sheeran, is the most streamed artist of 2017 globally, and remains the most-streamed artist on Spotify with 45 million monthly listeners.

His “÷” (“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.

“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,” said Stefan Blom, Spotify’s Chief Content Officer.

According to Spotify data, hip-hop listening increased 74% over the past year, and Latin music increased by 110%, with two Latin tracks hitting #1 on Spotify for the first time: “Despacito” by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee featuring Justin Bieber and “Mi Gente” by J Balvin and Willy Williams. Yankee also held the No. 1 position on Spotify in July, a first for a Latin artist.
