It’s that time of year again, where we look back on the music we cherished and the jams we wore out. It’s time for best-of-the-year lists across genres and publications, but isn’t it fun to know what you specifically enjoyed the most? Spotify’s got you and your data all lined up, and it works for the artists too.
Who had the best year in dance? Marshmello and Calvin Harris earned about 2 billion streams each. Kygo followed with a billion, and ODESZA enjoyed a hefty 337 million. Everyone in the list below has international appeal, earning plays in all of Spotify’s available 65 countries.
