It's that time of the year again: Spotify just released their lists of most streamed artists, aka the artists Filipinos listen to the most on the app, and coming out on top is local band December Avenue. It's the first time that a homegrown musical act topped Spotify's list for the Most Streamed Artist in the Philippines, even beating this generation's music legends Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran, who came in second and third, respectively. Coming in fourth on the list is Ben&Ben (another local fave!) while Ariana Grande sits at number five.

The local music scene seems to be thriving this year as December Avenue and Ben&Ben also dominated the Most Streamed Groups category, beating global groups like LANY, BTS, and Blackpink, who take the last three spots in the top five.

Aside from the list of artists, Spotify is also allowing its subscribers to see a personalized roundup of the artists, songs, music genres, and podcasts each user listened to the most through their personalized Spotify "Wrapped." The feature will be made available on the Spotify app itself later this week, so stay tuned if you're curious about your listening habits this week!
