Spotify has revealed the 'Top K-Pop Artists and Tracks' of 2020.
As expected, BTS was the most-streamed K-Pop group globally with over 5 billion streams, and their first-ever all-English track "Dynamite" is this year's most-streamed K-pop song, setting a new record on Spotify with 12.6 million streams in the first 24 hours. BTS' 'Map of the Soul: 7' is also the most-streamed K-Pop album of the year.
The second most-streamed K-Pop artist of the year is BLACKPINK. With more than 300 million streams to date, BLACKPINK’s “How You Like That” is also the second most-streamed song of the year.
The most-streamed Korean OST this year is “Sweet Night” by V from the soundtrack of ‘Itaewon Class’. The drama’s upbeat “시작” by Gaho also comes in as the third most-streamed Korean OST. Rounding out the top three is “Stay With Me” by CHANYEOL and Punch, the closing theme of ‘Guardian: The Lonely and Great God’. As people around the world stayed indoors, many turned to Korean Dramas as a source of entertainment and comfort. In fact, streaming of Spotify’s flagship Korean OSTs playlist peaked in March this year.
