The first half of 2022 has been filled with great music, and now we’re learning which artists are the most favored in the US so far. Chart data revealed the 10 most streamed artists of 2022 with Drake leading with 3 billion streams.
Given the success of Drake’s latest album, Certified Lover, it is not a surprise. Since its release in September 2021, the LP has spent 37 weeks on the Billboard 200 – five of those weeks have gone to No. 1.
Taylor Swift is the most streamed female artist in the United States so far. She’s also the only woman on the list, ranking #3 with 2.5 billion streams. Swift has launched a number of projects over the past few months as part of its process to own its catalog; she re-recorded her previous albums. His last to fall was Red (Taylor’s version) in November 2021. The LP spent 27 weeks on the Billboard 200 and shows no signs of going away.
Other artists to feature in the top 10 are The Weeknd, Kanye West and Eminem. See the full list in the tweet below.
