Bonn The year 2020 is coming to an end. In line with this, the streaming provider Spotify has published its musical review of the year. See here what should not be missing from the playlist of the Bonners?
In Germany, the year 2020 was again dominated by hip hop. In recent months, the people of Bonn have also enjoyed listening to the music of the rapper "Apache 207". This is the result of the musical annual review of the streaming service Spotify, which is published once a year.
With more than 233 million hits, the successful hit "Roller" by the 23-year-old artist from Ludwigsburg landed in 6th place among the most listened to songs by the people of Bonn and second place in the Germany-wide review. His style is characterised above all by a combination of pop and street rap. Since 1 December, users have been able to check in their web browser to see which artists, songs, music genres and podcasts they listened to most.
A personalised Spotify playlist also lists the 100 favourite songs of each user. According to the overview, songs by the Berlin rappers "Capital Bra" (26) or Samra (25), who ranked second and third among the most streamed artists in 2020 according to front-runner Apache 207, will probably also end up as best in Bonn. As last year, Capital Bra is once again the big winner in the Germany-wide rating - the rapper, who also performs under the name "Joker Bra", was voted the most popular artist by listeners.

As far as the most popular songs of the Bonners are concerned, however, German hip-hop cannot keep up in the top 3: The most popular song played by users was "Blinding Lights" by the Canadian R&B artist "The Weeknd". This corresponds not only to the Germany-wide ranking, but also to the worldwide ranking. "With a homage to the synth-pop of the 80s, the song not only delivered nostalgic feelings, but also the most internationally successful song on Spotify with over 1.6 billion streams," Spotify announced.
The hit, which was released on 29 November 2019, has received around 297 million hits on YouTube so far. By the way, the Bonners also couldn't get enough of the songs "Roses - Imanbek Remix" (2nd place) and "Dance Monkey" by "Tones and I".
