April 23, 2024

Have you ever wondered what the top 100 most-streamed songs on Spotify are?
Well, you've come to the right spot.

We're going to dive into some of the most played songs on Spotify. Not necessarily the best songs (though there is some overlap), but we've compiled a list of the most popular music that is streamed on Spotify.

In this blog post, you'll find a comprehensive list of the top 100 most-streamed songs of all time.

So, without further ado, let's dive in and see which songs made the cut!

What is the most listened to song on Spotify?

The most-streamed song in Spotify history is credited to… The Weeknd's "Blinding Lights."

The song, which was released in November 2019, has been streamed over 3 billion times on the platform! This is a huge thing. So far, the only two songs that have reached 3 billion streams on Spotify are The Weeknd's "Blinding Lights" and Ed Sheeran's "Shape of You".

With the dazzling 3,332 billion streams, The Weeknd surpassed Ed Sheraans’ “Shape of You” in January 2023. Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You” held the record for the most streamed song for over 5 years! When it seemed that nobody would be able to overtake the 1st place, The Weeknd’s Blinding Lights needed only a few months to set a new streaming record.

It's no surprise that The Weeknd's hit song "Blinding Lights" has taken over Spotify as the most streamed song on the platform. With its catchy beat and infectious chorus, it's easy to see why it has become a new fan favorite.

But just how popular is "Blinding Lights"? According to Spotify, it is currently the most listened to song on the platform, with over 3.3 billion streams. That's right, 3.3 billion streams! It's no wonder that it has become the most streamed song in Spotify history, credited to none other than The Weeknd himself.

As for myself, "Blinding Lights" has not become my most listened to song on Spotify, but I love its catchy beat and smooth vocals. Every time it comes on, I find myself singing along and dancing in my seat.

It's not just me that can't get enough of "Blinding Lights". The song has become a global phenomenon, reaching the top of charts in 37 countries. It has even been used in various commercials and movies, further cementing its place as a cultural phenomenon.

“Blinding Lights” was also officially recognized as the biggest US Billboard Hot 100 single of all time. When released at the end of 2019, the song spent over 100 weeks in the charts.

If you haven't already, be sure to give "Blinding Lights" a listen on Spotify. It's definitely worth the stream, and you'll soon see why it has become the most streamed song on the platform. Trust me, you won't be able to get it out of your head.

Who is the most listened to artist on Spotify?

As of January 2023, The Weeknd has the most monthly listeners on Spotify. Ed Sheeran is the most-followed male artist and Drake is the most-streamed artist of all time.

The Weeknd is a Canadian singer who has won several awards including four Grammys, 20 Billboard Music Awards and 17 Juno Awards. He has had great success with his albums Kiss Land (2013), Beauty Behind the Madness (2015), Starboy (2016), After hours (2020) and Dawn FM (2022).

Even if you’re not The Weeknd’s fan, you can probably name their most popular song: "Blinding Lights". The song was released on November 29, 2019, and has been streamed more than 3.3 billion times since then. It currently holds the top position for the most streamed song on Spotify ever.
