It’s been quite a year for Bad Bunny.

The Puerto Rican singer, songwriter and rapper is this year’s most streamed artist in the world on Spotify for the third year in a row, according to Spotify Wrapped 2022. He also had the most songs on Pandora’s "Thumb Hundred" list and was crowned Apple Music’s "Artist of the Year" in early November.

Bad Bunny, who won a Grammy and took home another five Latin Grammy Awards, had the year’s top-seller and the first all-Spanish language to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart. This year, he also became the only artist in history to put on two separate $100-million tours in less than 12 months with his "El Último Tour Del Mundo" and "World’s Hottest Tour."

Bad Bunny’s "threepeat" for top honors on Spotify is a first for the music streaming service, but Taylor Swift topped the list of artists whose songs were most frequently shared to social media. She was also the top artist in Australia, the U.K., Ireland, Malaysia, the Philippines, New Zealand, Qatar, Slovenia and Singapore.

The other musicians capping off the top 5 are Drake, The Weeknd and K-pop sensation BTS.
