Bad Bunny's Album Dominates as Spotify's Most-Streamed for Second Consecutive Year

Published November 29, 2023

Bad Bunny's hit album Un Verano Sin Ti has made history on Spotify by becoming the most-streamed album for the second year in a row. The 2023 Spotify Wrapped results are in, showcasing the platform's most beloved music, and Bad Bunny's album has secured the top spot again with an impressive 4.5 billion streams.

Consistency at the top

The most-streamed album of the year is often one released within the same calendar year. However, Bad Bunny's Un Verano Sin Ti, which was also 2022's most-streamed album, has defied expectations by maintaining its popularity well into 2023. This Puerto Rican artist's album has captivated listeners worldwide, maintaining its momentum far beyond its initial release period.

A mix of age on the Chart

2023's Spotify chart of most-streamed albums included a mix of both new and previous year releases. Albums like Taylor Swift's Midnights and SZA's SOS which were released in 2022, still managed to secure second and third place respectively for most streams in 2023. This trend was observed with other 2022 albums as well, such as Metro Boomin's Heroes & Villains and Harry Styles' Harry's House, both of which made it to the top ten.

What's more surprising is the staying power of even older albums on the list. Taylor Swift's Lover, from 2019, and The Weeknd's Starboy, from 2016, both secured spots in the top ten most-streamed albums of 2023, showcasing the enduring appeal of their music.

Releases from the current year also made impacts, with albums from artists like Karol G, Morgan Wallen, and Peso Pluma claiming their positions in the top ten, highlighting a dynamic mix of lasting favorites and fresh hits on the streaming giant's charts.
