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.
