Female voices were a force on Spotify in 2019, with Billie Eilish, who had an earthshaking breakout year, coming in as the second most streamed artist globally. She surpassed 6 billion streams this year alone, and her album WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? is 2019’s most streamed album of the year on Spotify, marking the first time a female-led album has topped “Wrapped.” The year’s most streamed song is from the duo that took the Northern Hemisphere summer by storm: Señorita by Shawn Mendes and Camilla Cabello with more than 1 billion streams, followed closely by Eilish’s hit track bad guy with more than 990 million streams.
