Last year, the music streaming service Spotify made its debut in Pakistan. This not only aided local artists in reaching out to their followers, but it also made the service far less expensive than anticipated. In Pakistan, a monthly Spotify subscription costs only Rs 300, which is significantly less than in other nations.
Spotify is marking the one-year anniversary of its launch by sharing Pakistani music statistics. More than 19,600 Pakistani songs have been added to Spotify in the last year, according to Spotify data. India, America, and the United Kingdom are the top three countries listening to Pakistani Spotify music out of 184 countries with 406 million users worldwide.
The top popular Pakistani artists on Spotify were also revealed. Due to his significant songs such as Kadi Te Has Bol, Jeena Jeena, and Tere Sang Yaara, Atif Aslam was the most streamed musician on Spotify. These were among the top ten most-streamed Pakistani songs outside of the country.
The app’s second most-streamed artist was Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, his uncle and a famed qawwali master, was the third most popular name. Momina Mustehsan finished fourth, and Bilal Saeed finished fifth.
Momina and Bilal’s most popular song was Baari. In other nations, it was the most streamed local song.
