Since the first records in the history of the human being, sound and music have always been present. Because it is a universal languageit is capable of being understood and felt by anyone regardless of their language or culture.
Music has the ability connect individuals with their emotionswhether it makes them feel happiness, longing, sadness, and a whole range of feelings through its wide styles or genres.
In the new millennium, platforms such as Spotify have managed to take advantage of this and, through its extensive catalog of songs and artists, have positioned themselves in the taste of users, who also have the possibility of listen to your favorite music through applications and even without the need for internet access.
However, given the great variety that Spotify has, it could be easy to get lost in a fast-moving industryso here we present a list of the most played singles by the American public.
1. Bad Habit
Steve Lacy’s theme is very successful among the users of this platform, after accumulating 1,408,405 reproductions. Today it is still in the first position.
2. Me Porto Bonito
3. Titi asked me
4. As It Was
The latest from Harry Styles, “As It Was”, enters directly to the fourth position of the list of favorites. It has already been played 991,113 times. What will the future hold?
5. Super Freaky Girl
Nicki Minaj’s “Super Freaky Girl” is selling like hotcakes. She already has 963,234 views, which makes her a major player in the ranking and holder of position 5.
6. Shut Down
7. Romantic Homicide
d4vd’s “Romantic Homicide” has carved out a niche for itself among the favorites of the moment. It has 840,783 reproductions, which is why it is still in seventh position.
8. Im Good (Blue)
9. I Aint Worried
10. Jimmy Cooks
A number as favorable as 750,221 reproductions is not enough to continue advancing in the ranking. Thus, the one that was a great success of Drake is losing places in the list of the most listened to songs. Today it is placed in the tenth place.
In the music industry, the United States is one of the most difficult countries to conquer, but those who manage to do so are guaranteed the doors of success just as these artists have achieved. Remember that this top 10 is updated every 24 hours.

The rise of Spotify
Founded in 2006the company of Swedish origin formally began its activities in Europe on October 7, 2008 and little by little it has been having a presence all over the world, being currently in 187 countries and offering music from more than seven million artists.
Today the streaming platform has agreements with Universal Music, Sony Music, EMI Music, Hollywood Records, Interscope Records, Warner Musicamong other.
In terms of podcast, Spotify announced in November 2020 the purchase and acquisition of the advertising and podcast platform Megaphone for 235 million dollars, which was used for the monetization of audios.
According to the figures published by Spotify, in 2019 it had 217 million subscribers, which in 2020 increased to 345 million and that in 2021, despite the pandemic, they reached 365 million subscribersof which about 50% are paying customers, while they now number 433 million users.
As a model, Spotify has raised pay artists from your catalog a fixed price per song or album sold and gives royalties based on the amount of artist plays in proportion to the total songs streamed, unlike its competitors, who pay for physical sales or downloads.
In addition, the 70% of your total income they go to copyright holders, mostly record labels, who then pay artists based on their individual contracts.
It should be noted that currently anyone can enjoy the Spotify free serviceas long as you’re willing to put up with ads and with restrictions like not being able to skip some songs.
