Spotify has become the largest streaming service for music in the world. The most-streamed song of the year, Tones and I's Dance Monkey, was streamed more than 40 million times. This shows you what kind of power Spotify has over setting trends in modern music, and the amount of data they have on listeners tastes and habits.
Spotify releases a lot of data on its listeners and has even released a personalized feature in their app this year that allows you to discover your own music history with the app, including your most streamed artists and favourite genres.
Spotify is also famous for its various themed playlists featuring every one from Top 40 artists to the up-and-coming indie hits of the season. For many new artists, it's a big deal to be featured on one of the popular playlists, but for the most part, they are dominated by established artists in the genre.
Spotify released an infographic on the most streamed workout music around the world, including most streamed songs across age groups and genders. The list is not surprising at all, but provides an insight into the listening habits of various age groups on the app.
