Who is the greatest musician of 2018

These are the 10 most successful Spotify artists worldwide

What would the music industry be in the 21st century without Spotify? The music streaming service offers a diverse range of items, from classic albums to podcasts. But which Spotify artist is actually the most successful? We'll tell you.

180 million people worldwide use Spotify. The company that has changed the way we consume music has been in existence for more than ten years.

But a lot has changed for the musicians too. If the artist does not succeed in convincing the listener of himself in the first few seconds, he has a problem. Because if the user does not listen for at least 30 seconds, the artist does not receive any money.

Adding up the total playing time of all tracks on Spotify would add up to 16.858 million years. You see: Spotify is firmly anchored in music consumption in the 21st century.
