The hit song ‘Dynamite’ of the Kpop group BTS became the most streamed song on Apple Music this year.
In this year’s chart settlement announced by Apple Music on November 30, ‘Dynamite‘ took first place with the most-streamed record in the ‘2021 Most Streamed Songs’ category.
Kpop group BTS released ‘Dynamite,’ in August of last year. It became the first Korean song to top the US Billboard’s main singles chart ‘Hot 100.’
In addition, ‘Butter,’ released by BTS in May, also ranked 21st on the chart. ‘Butter‘ topped the ‘Hot 100’ 10 times this year. This is the song with the most ‘number 1’ place on the Hot 100 this year.
2nd place on this chart was ‘Driver’s License’ of Olivia Rodrigo. She is an American rookie singer who competed for first place with ‘Butter’ on ‘Hot 100’ for a long time.
In addition, the song that Apple Music listed to the most-streamed songs includes ‘Head & Heart (Feat. MNEK)[Tiësto Remix].’
Then, Masked Wolf’s ‘Astronaut In The Ocean’ became the most searched song on the global music search platform Shazam.
Also, The Weeknd became the ‘Global Artist of the Year’ at the ‘3rd Apple Music Awards’ announced on the same day.
Olivia Rodrigo won three awards by sweeping this year’s rookie of the year, album of the year (for her first full-length album ‘Sour’), and song of the year (driver’s license). This year’s composer of the year turns out to be the American singer-songwriter H.E.R.
