He landed the coveted title of the most listened to artist over a period of one month on the platform.
83.3 million. This is the number of monthly listeners that Canadian singer Justin Bieber reached on Spotify in August, becoming the most listened to artist on the music streaming platform. A feat carried in particular by the summer success of his song “Peaches”, performed with artists Daniel Caesar and Giveon. The artist thus beats a record previously held by American pop star Ariana Grande.
The singer, who started her career in a Disney series, had previously reached 82 million monthly listeners. A figure that has now fallen to 56.7 million. With his 83.3 million, Justin Bieber also distances his current competition: no other artist crosses the 80 million mark.
The Canadian singer is followed on the podium by The Weeknd (74.53 million monthly listeners) and Ed Sheeran (72.41 million monthly listeners). An uniquely male top trio. The most listened to female artist is Dua Lipa. The British singer counts 65.5 million monthly listeners.
