Today, Spotify reveals the most streamed artists, songs, and albums of 2022 on Wrapped, their annual roundup in music. In Norway, the charts are dominated by Norwegian artists and Norwegian music, with three Norwegians among the top five artists and as many as nine Norwegians in the top 10 most played songs.
Statistics also show that we’ve streamed a lot more Norwegian music this year than last year. Norwegian music streaming in Norway has increased by 16 percent from 2021 to 2022. The most streamed artist in Norway is Ballinciaga, followed by Karpe. The Weekend slipped in third place and Ed Sheeran in fourth, while TIX was in fifth.
Ballinciaga had a successful year and also had the most streamed song, Dans på bordet. We found Vinni in second place with his halo and Karpe rounding out the all-Norway top three with PAF.no. In fact, only one international artist has made it into the top 10 list of streaming songs in Norway. Harry Styles with As it was fifth.
– Wrapped was a highlight of the year for us and it’s always interesting to follow how the top lists in different countries reflect and differ from the global lists. We think it’s great to see Norwegians really embrace this year’s Norwegian artists and are excited about the continuation, said Johan Seidefors, Head of Nordic Content at Spotify.
The top list for most streamed albums of the year in Norway is more international, but there too we find two Norwegian albums in the top 10, and not least one Norwegian album in first place. UNDERGRUNN tops the list with his self-titled album and Chris Holsten takes fourth with Bak en facade.
Bad Bunny on top globally
Globally, nothing beats Bad Bunny. For the third year in a row, she is the world’s most-streamed artist of the year. He also took first place in the list of most streamed albums globally this year. Taylor Swift and Drake round out the top three artists, while Harry Styles and Olivia Rodrigo hold the other two top positions on the albums chart.
In the top three on the list of most streamed songs globally, we find Harry Styles at the top, with the same song that made it to Norway’s top list, As It Was. Glass Animals is in second with Heat Waves and The Kid LAROI is in third with STAY, a song featuring Justin Bieber. Bad Bunny appeared in fourth and fifth place with Me Porto Bonito and Tití Me Preguntó.
