Since early December, Spotify listeners have been able to use a feature called Spotify Wrapped that shows the top artists, songs and genres they’ve listened to throughout the year. It also reveals how many minutes were spent listening to music through the service and even puts the user's top 100 songs into a Spotify playlist.
Spotify gave us an overview of the most listened to artists and songs in Dallas for 2018, and the city seems to like rap and hip-hop.

Although Spotify was not able to provide total streaming time and top genres, it’s easy to see that hip-hop took over the streaming service in Dallas. It should also be noted that Spotify’s global lists share most of the same top artists with Dallas and have hip-hop as the dominant genre. The world’s top five most-streamed artists in Spotify for 2018 were, in order: Drake, Post Malone, XXXTENTACION, J Balvin and Ed Sheeran. The top five most-streamed songs of 2018 were Drake’s “God’s Plan,” XXXTENTACION’s “SAD!,” Post Malone’s “Rockstar,” Post Malone’s “Psycho” and Drake’s “In My Feelings.” Not surprisingly, Drake is now considered to be Spotify’s most-streamed artist of all time, having garnered 8.2 billion streams in 2018 and having also been Spotify’s most-streamed artist back in 2015 and 2016.
