He has defended his throne: The Berlin rapper Capital Bra is also the most frequently streamed musician on Spotify in Germany in 2020, as the portal’s Wrapped annual review shows.
Capital Bra’s most important competitor is again Apache 207, which is in second place and Capital Bra has clearly overtaken the rank in another category: The Ludwigshafen-based singer and rapper is represented three times in the top ten of the most popular songs, the Berliner not a single time .
Apache 207 had a big hit with “Roller”
Particularly astonishing: Volkan Yaman alias Apache 207, whose debut album “Staircase” was released in the summer, was the only German-speaking act to make it onto this list. With his single “Roller” he came in second place, only had to admit defeat to the 1.6 billion times streamed synth pop hit “Blinding Lights” by Canadian star The Weeknd.
If hip-hop dominates the best lists in Germany, the international scene is a bit more diverse. Among the 320 million Spotify users, with 8.3 billion streams, the artist of the year, for example, was the singer Bad Bunny from Puerto Rico. His reggaeton album “YHLQMDLG” (short for: I do what I want. Deutsch: Ich mache, was ich will) Also leads the list of the most successful albums with 3.3 billion streams.

There he follows The Weeknds “After Hours”, third is last year’s streaming king Post Malone with “Hollywood’s Bleeding”, fourth Harry Styles with “Fine Line” and fifth Dua Lipa with “Future Nostalgia”, making her the only woman in the men’s Riege could advance.
In the top five of the world’s most successful acts, however, there is no woman – not even Billie Eilish was able to place herself here. However, she only released three new singles in 2020. In addition to Bad Bunny, Drake, reggaeton star J Balvin and The Weeknd, a dead man also made it into the charts: The rapper Juice Wrld, who died of an overdose in December 2019, came in fourth thanks to the streaming grief of his fans.
