It’s been a year to remember – being physically apart for so long, yet somehow finding ways to come together as a resilient community. As the year comes to a close, Spotify 2020 Wrapped celebrates the creators behind the music and podcasts that kept us going throughout all 700 months of this year. Whether it was to stay informed, sing along or simply tune it all out, people kept listening and creators never missed a beat.
Topping the list in 2017 and 2018, Dato’ Sri Siti Nurhaliza is once again Malaysia’s most-streamed local artist of 2020. Coming in second is K-Clique, followed by Faizal Tahir, YonnyBoii and Naim Daniel, respectively.
Some of the most popular podcasts in Malaysia this year includes Mamak Sessions, The Aida Azlin Show and TED Talks Daily. From catching up with the latest news, deep diving into a world of stories, or following one’s favourite celeb, podcasts have opened up a new world for people while staying at home. Malaysians have also been tuning into podcasts in the early morning and lean towards podcast genres such as Lifestyle & Health, Society & Culture and Religion & Spirituality.
Check out Spotify’s blog For the Record and the latest episode of our podcast Spotify: For the Record to dive even deeper into the streaming trends of 2020 and learn how Wrapped evolved this year. Finally, coming soon, Spotify users will be able to access their personalized Wrapped experience, showcasing the way they listened throughout the year.
