AKP STAFF

After numerous fans' complaints, Spotify has admitted to an error in its 'Top K-Pop Artists of 2022' for the annual Spotify Wrapped.

Earlier this week, the Spotify Wrapped rankings for the 'Top K-Pop Artists of 2022' featured the following artists in the top 10:


TOP K-POP ARTISTS GLOBALLY

1. BTS

2. BLACKPINK

3. TWICE

4. Stray Kids

5. SEVENTEEN

6. TOMORROW X TOGETHER

7. ENHYPEN

8. ITZY

9. (G)I-DLE

10. Red Velvet

However, due to fans' complaints, Spotify reevaluated its rankings and admitted that "multiple genre tags led to slightly different top ten lists"

Now, in the corrected rankings, BTS's Jungkook has been added as the 9th artist as well as the only solo artist, while (G)I-DLE were bumped down to 10th place.

This was a massive error

Not sure the reason behind all this ruckus

But removing My Universe, That That, Left & Right and other collabs from BTS's discography somehow doesnt sit right

Criticize Spotify, however attacking the other Artist is unacceptable
