On Wednesday, Spotify has announced its annual figures, and it shows the following: The most streamed musicians of the year is called Capital Bra – the German rapper has won both in the category of "most-streamed Album of the year" in the category "most-streamed artist of the year".
These musicians were streamed in 2019, most of the time.
Only in the category of most-streamed Songs of the year must wait in line Bra in the back, as in Deutschrap in the presence of the amount of Content and not of the individual Overheating is crucial. And since Switzerland is in love with the summer: "Senorita" by Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes means that song, that was consumed the most followed by Lewis Capaldis "Someone You Loved" and Billie Eilishs "Bad Guy".
The Playlist of the most streamed Songs of the year.
Regional differences in the German part of Switzerland, at least at the top: In Basel, Bern and Zurich Capital Bra and "Señorita wins pretty unanimous". An outlier recorded in Bern on the second rank of the top-streamed artist: French Rap-Combo PNL – which is not listed in the other cities can be found. It would not be surprising therefore, if the PNL would be the next belt festival on the stage.
The most streamed musician in the world Post Malone is, by the way. The Pop-Rapper won before Billie Eilish and Ariana Grande.

A good Start to the year, the Revue offers the 100 list of the UK's online magazine "The Quietus". Because it is the list, the debut in addition to some Popalben like Billie Eilishs or Lana Del Rey bundles up some of the musical Fearlessness and curiosity for new music, and always wakes you up. In the first place, the Londoner, Loraine James is find, published in the autumn of the multi-drift end of the Album, "For You and I" on the seminal Label Hyperdub.

The Swiss window
Today, it is actually a window or a Törli, because Evelinn has Trouble as in the past years, an advent calendar with 24 Short Songs of her and her Girlfriends and friends. Who is hiding behind all of this? You can see it. Anyone who helps is also the organization's Music Declares Emergency, which campaigns for greater sustainability in the not-very-sustainable music business.
- How sustainable is the song of the Bernese Hainan, will show, as always, in the Pop the time. Because the Duo has built a possible future in her debut, appearing on Friday? Or too much Squinting at the Trends of the present, is there?
What is bloom
A Van-Halen-Revival. Because Billie Eilish didn't know that in the Late-Night Show Jimmy Kimmel, who Van Halen are. What is not at all a bad thing (because who – besides the Fans – in the year 2019, more than "Jump"). Nevertheless, this knowledge gap put the old hard rock-guard in such a turmoil that the still 17-year-old Eilish in the best Boomer-manner of ignorance was accused of. Billie Eilish – if you would think so – could at least beat very easy With the super hits from the present, which should not like the Van Halen Fans (and title you would not know with certainty). A Playlist is a proposal in the list with the 20 best Songs, I published a week ago.
