Macklemore, Imagine Dragons Dominated Spotify In 2013: See The Year’s Top Streams

d7ff229aef6e20d6ddd8d06803a7545a Macklemore, Imagine Dragons Dominated Spotify In 2013: See The Year’s Top Streams

Spotify is cagey with streaming numbers and statistics regarding the habits of their 24 million listeners, but each year the service releases a capsule review of their users’ habits from the past 12 months. In 2013, 4.5 billion hours of music were streamed through the service, and in the US, those streams were dominated by newcomers Imagine Dragons and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. The two acts were responsible for Spotify’s three most-streamed tracks (“Radioactive,” “Thrift Shop” and “Can’t Hold Us,” respectively) and two most-streamed albums of the year (Night Visions and The Heist, in that order) in America. Quite frankly, the Imagine Dragons performance stunned us. Obviously, everyone was listening to/watching Macklemore all year. But where are all these ID listeners coming from?!

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis were the most-streamed act worldwide (stateside, Drake was tops), and Rihanna was the globe’s most popular female artist. Despite coming in second in the US, “Thrift Shop” is the most streamed song of the last five years. Daft Punk, Robin Thicke, Jay Z, Justin Timberlake, The Lumineers, Bruno Mars and Lana Del Rey also had a strong year domestically.

Head below for the top 10 tracks, albums and artists in the US on Spotify this year.
