Popular streaming platform, Spotify, has updated the website it created in early 2023 Afrobeat with new content it believes would catch the fancy of its target audience.

The website, Afrobeats Journey to a Billion Streams, which has become an online hub for information regarding the genre of music, celebrates its global impact and African roots.

Spotify, in a statement, said Afrobeats enthusiasts can now feed their passion with details about the most streamed Afrobeats tracks, albums and artists in 2023.

The new updates showcase Davido as the most streamed Afrobeats artist in 2023. Unavailable by Davido also claims the top spot of the most streamed Afrobeats tracks in 2023 and Rema’s album, Rave and Roses Ultra, stood out as the most streamed Afrobeats album in 2023.

To gain insight into the comprehensive compilation of Afrobeats artists, tracks, and albums that earned a spot on the most streamed list in 2023, users have been encouraged to delve into the recently updated Afrobeats site by Spotify because it offers an immersive experience that celebrates the evolution and impact of this dynamic and vibrant music genre.

This new content is an addition to the available information already on the site about the genre’s beginnings, evolution, fusion of styles, cultural impact, and highlights of notable women who have played influential roles within the genre.

Afrobeats’ exponential growth and global acceptance are evident in its significant milestones. From Rema’s groundbreaking achievement of surpassing a billion streams on Spotify with his track Calm Down featuring Selena Gomez, Afrobeats artists being nominated for and winning the prestigious Grammy awards, to other Afrobeats artists headlining their shows at iconic venues both home and abroad; the music genre is taking its position as a leading and globally celebrated cultural export from Africa.
