Ben&Ben the most streamed artist in PHL

THE NINE-PIECE pop folk band Ben&Ben sits atop the list of most streamed artists in the Philippines in this year’s Spotify Wrapped 2020, the music streaming service’s annual compilation of what people listened to and enjoyed within the year.

The band, known for its sentimental songs such as “Lifetime,” “Sa Susunod na Habang Buhay,” and “Doors,” first entered the Spotify Most Streamed Artist list in 2019, placing fourth in a year that saw a local artist — rock band December Avenue (“Kung Di Rin Lang Ikaw,” “Sa Ngalan ng Pag-Ibig“) — topping the list for the first time.

Ben&Ben, which spent the year recording new songs (and possibly a new album) in quarantine, also saw its most recent album, Limasawa Street, sit at the third spot in the Most Streamed Albums in 2020.

The band also topped the Most Streamed Groups list and the Most Streamed Local Artist.

Joining the band in the Most Streamed Artist list this year are (in order of appearance) K-pop juggernaut BTS, American pop stars Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber, and K-pop girl group BlackPink. Ben&Ben is the only local artist in the list.

Imahe” by local alt-rock band Magnus Haven was the country’s Most Streamed Song of the year, followed by Justin Bieber’s “Intentions” and Ben&Ben’s “Make It With You” in the second and third spots respectively.

On the global front, Puerto Rican rapper Bad Bunny occupies the top spot on the Most Streamed Artists Globally while his album YHLQMDLG is also the Most Streamed Global Album.

Bad Bunny is followed by Drake, J Balvin, Juice WRLD, and The Weeknd on the male-dominated Most Streamed Artist Globally list.

The Weeknd may not have occupied the top spot on the aforementioned list but he has the Most Streamed Song — “Blinding Lights.” — Zsarlene B. Chua
