Spotify has released Wrapped data for cities this year and the results for Houston may surprise you. According to the music platform, Bayou City listeners streamed singer song-writer Bad Bunny the most in 2022. The Puerto Rican megastar —whose real name is Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio—is also the most-streamed artist in the world on Spotify in 2022, his third year in a row. It's the first time an artist has ever accomplished the feat.
Trailing just behind Ocasio for Houston's Top Artists of 2022 on the music platform is Drake in second place, Taylor Swift in third, The Weeknd in fourth, and Kanye West in fifth. Noticeably missing from the list are some of Houston's best-known artists who released projects this year, including Beyoncé, Megan Thee Stallion and Lizzo. Unsurprisingly, Houston's top genre of 2022 on Spotify was Rap, followed by Pop, Hip-Hop, Trap, and Pop-rap.
