Have you been listening to Jay Chou, JJ Lin, and Senorita on loop all year? Thanks to your obsessive listening, they topped Singapore’s music streams for 2019. 

Spotify today revealed that Taiwanese singer Jay Chou was the most-streamed global artist in Singapore while JJ Lin ranked first among local musicians. Sizzling pop track Senorita by hot couple Shawn Mendes and Camilla Cabello was the most-streamed song.

Spotify says the results were based on the number of plays lasting at least 30 seconds.

K-pop boyband BTS were followed by American singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran to round out the top three global acts streamed the most in Singapore. Domestically, JJ Lin was followed by songstress Stefanie Sun and electronic musician Jasmine Sokko.
