Spotify reveals Ireland's most-streamed artists, albums, tracks and podcasts in 2020

Music streaming giant Spotify has named the top 10 most-streamed artists in Ireland in 2020, and while late rapper Juice WRLD was Ireland's number one, our own Dermot Kennedy came in at number three.

Canadian artist Drake was the second most-streamed artist with Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande completing Ireland's most listened to artists of the year.

Kennedy's 'Without Fear' was the most-streamed album in Ireland this year, beating Lewis Cappaldi and Harry Styles to the top spot.

The Weeknd, real name Abel Tesfaye, had the most-streamed track of 2020 with 'Blinding Lights', followed by Imanbek & SAINt JHN's 'Roses' and DaBaby's 'Rockstar' featuring Roddy Ricch.

In the ever-evolving podcast scene, Irish people favoured the home-grown talent with four of the top five positions filled by Irish hosts.

Tipperary comedic duo The 2 Johnnies claimed the coveted title of most-streamed podcast in Ireland ahead of The Joe Rogan Experience. The Blindboy Podcast came third, while The Laughs Of Your Life with Doireann Garrihy and The David McWilliams Podcast rounded out the top five.
