Wiesbaden (dpa/lhe) - The Berlin rapper Luciano is the most popular musician among users of the Spotify streaming service in Hesse this year. Luciano also took the top spot in the top ten in Germany, as Spotify announced on Wednesday as part of its annual review "Wrapped". There is also no difference in second and third place between the hit list in Hesse and the whole of Germany: Here, the Austrian dancehall producer and hip-hop artist RAF Camora and the Hamburg rapper Bonez MC rank.
According to the world's largest music streaming service, Luciano also delivered the most popular album of the year in Germany with "Majestic". The rapper, born in Bautzen, Saxony, is one of the most successful musicians in German hip-hop. According to Spotify 2022, the 28-year-old was not only the most streamed in Germany, his song "Beautiful Girl" was also the most listened to track.
There is some disagreement in places four to six: singer Cro is in sixth place in Hesse, but fourth in Germany. Fourth place in Hesse goes to Ed Sheeran, followed by Drake.
The most listened to podcast is "Gemischtes Hack". The show is number 1 in the top podcasts in Germany for the fourth time, according to the Swedish audio streaming service Spotify. And in Hesse, too, people obviously prefer to listen to comedian and author Felix Lobrecht and TV presenter and columnist Tommi Schmitt.
The Spotify competitors Apple Music and Deezer have already published their annual charts. Apple Music gives users insights into listening habits under the title "Replay". As announced on Tuesday, "Shivers" by Ed Sheeran was the most streamed song in Germany in 2022. With the provider Deezer, the service is called "Rewind". There, the rapper Kontra K was able to win the most streams among users in Germany.
