While hip-hop dominated Spotify's charts in 2018, Latin music continued to grow rapidly. Individually, Drake had a stellar year, as did Post Malone and the late XXXTENTACION. Artists J Balvin and Bad Bunny (both featured on Cardi B's I Like It), along with Ozuna, made the top-ten most streamed artists list.

The singer's collaboration with Calvin Harris, One Kiss, was the UK's second most-streamed song of the year on both platforms behind God's Plan by Drake, while her self-titled debut was the third most played on Spotify and sixth on Apple Music. The top five groups are Imagine Dragons, BTS, Maroon 5, Migos, and good old Coldplay, last year's most streamed group.

Spotify announced Tuesday that the rapper earned 8.2 billion streams in 2018. Three Latin artists - J Balvin, Bad Bunny (both of whom are featured on Cardi B's smash single "I Like It") and Ozuna - landed on the top-10 most-streamed artists list, while past year, Daddy Yankee was the only Spanish-speaking artist to reach the top 10.

With downloads and streams across all platforms, One Kiss also ranks as the UK's second biggest song of 2018 so far, according to Official Charts Company data, and is now very close behind the top song, God's Plan. Spotify defines a group as having at least three members.
