As happens every year, Spotify released on Monday (7) Year In Music page, which shows how you used the service streaming of music in 2016. The interactive page shows, with many colors, images and sounds, some statistics interesting about what you (and the world) heard.
Starting with the most played artists, the Year In Music displays your top albums, songs, genres, playlists and even the total number of artists and songs that you heard. It is an interesting fact because they make the comparison with last year: I, for example, heard 253% more music in 2016 than in 2014.
The page also shows what was your musical variety, that is, how many songs and new artists you heard throughout the year. This part is interesting because in the same year Spotify began to introduce more new music to users from Week Discoveries playlist. I even found many cool artists there.
If that was not enough, Spotify also shows all this data up to the whole world, or even to a particular country, such as Brazil. That part is not new: in the last week, they had released a list of the greatest artists of 2016.
The greatest of all was the Canadian rapper Drake, with 1.8 billion streams and 46 million listeners. Rihanna was the female artist with the most streams (1 billion), while Justin Bieber broke the record for most streams in a single day: 36 million were only on the 13th of November, when his album Purpose was released.
The most listened song of the year was Lean On, the Major Lazer band, with 540 million streams, and the most popular album is the Beauty Behind The Madness of The Weeknd.Still, Ed Sheeran remains the artist with the most streams of all time: 3 billion, with more than 59 million listeners per year. Sheeran was the artist most heard last year.
In addition to showing the main streaming service data on the page Year In Music, Spotify also put some interessates data of the music world in the stories section. Did you know that when Zayn Malik left the One Direction, the band had 330% more streams in the world and 769% (!) In the United States?
On the “Plagiarism x influences,” Spotify recalls that 2016 was a very productive year for lawyers of music producers. Among the artists who entered the competition for copyright are Sam Smith, Robin Thicke, Pharrell Williams and Marvin Gaye.
