Celebrating a decade of discovery on Spotify


It’s been 10 years since Spotify officially launched for fans—and new music and artist discovery has never been the same. We built our Swedish company to create a legal, better alternative to piracy—one that helps to fairly compensate artists for their work and shape music listening and sharing via streaming.

In honor of this important milestone, we’re unveiling our lists of the most-streamed artists and songs, milestones and achievements, and most influential genres over the past 10 years. Take a closer look.

The preference people have for Spotify over Apple Music or vice versa is always interesting to me. For example, my wife likes Spotify better because it has a wider selection of Yoga music for her to work out to. If you’re a Spotify fan, check out their Decade of Discovery playlist.
