Spotify's Top Artists Of 2016

Here’s How Many Streams Various Metal & Hard Rock Artists Got On Spotify In 2018 (Updated)


0

While a clever marketing tool and way to reflect on listening habits over the past year, Spotify‘s annual ‘Wrapped’ campaign has also provided some unique insight into how various metal and hard rock bands performed on the streaming service in 2018. As part of the campaign, numerous artists have shared the base reports Spotify provided them with regarding their streams, fans, etc. on the streaming service this year.

Of course, these shouldn’t be viewed as definitive data with the numbers being pulled from the data shared publicly by the artists themselves. They also don’t paint a complete picture of a band’s year either as there are obviously various rival streaming services with which bands could have found more (or less) success on. In addition to that, there were also numerous bands that didn’t share their stats, so consider this a rough list of those who did.

That said, when going by overall streams in 2018 in total, here’s how the metal/hard rock bands performed overall on Spotify:
