Spotify has released its data for 2020, and Irish music fans can now see who the most popular artists were amongst their fellow countrymen and women over the course of the year.

The most-streamed artist amongst Irish users in 2020 was late rapped Juice WRLD aka Jarad Anthony Higgins, who died at the age of 21 in December 2019. His posthumous album 'Legends Never Die' was released in July and proved extremely popular both in Ireland and worldwide.

The most-streamed track in Ireland was The Weeknd's 'Blinding Lights', which has proved so popular that it was performed on the Late Late Toy Show last week (not by The Weeknd, though.)

Meanwhile, there's good news for at least one Irish artist, as Dermot Kennedy's 'Without Fear' proved the most popular album on Spotify in Ireland in 2020. The 2 Johnnies podcast topped the podcast charts.

From a global perspective, Puerto Rican rapper Bad Bunny claimed both the 'Most Streamed Artist' and 'Most Streamed Album' title, while The Weeknd's 'Blinding Lights' was the most-streamed track, and The Joe Rogan Experience was the most-streamed podcast.
