We believe the power of K-pop genre has been going strong for these past years. In this case, Spotify has announced that South Korean sensation BTS (방탄소년단) is Malaysia’s most streamed artiste this year! For the uninitiated, the 7-member boy band has taken the world by storm this year with their biggest hit “Boy With Luv” featuring Halsey. Other highly-recommended songs that they have released this year are “Microcosmos” and “Make It Right” (with Lauv), just to name a few.

The local music scene saw a surprising twist, as up-and-coming rap ensemble K-Clique beats other mainstream acts including our resident Malaysian pop queen and king – Dato’ Siti Nurhaliza and Faizal Tahir – to become the most streamed local artiste.

Known for songs like “Mimpi” and “Sah Tu Satu”, the group consists of 8 talented gentleman – MK, Noki, Tuju, Somean, KDeaf, FareedPF, Gnello and NastyNas are definitely worth the stan. Additionally, rising pop rock band Insomniacks has successfully rocketed their way up to the top 5 list, thanks to the popularity of their hit single “Pulang”.

In addition, “Wrapped” has come out with a specially-crafted “A Decade Wrapped” – the 1st time ever in Spotify’s history! For those who don’t know, “A Decade Wrapped” will take a look back at the 10-year-long journey of evolving music, culture and streaming through the eyes of fans, artistes and creators that have made it all possible.
