Spotify has shared a list of the platform’s 50 most-streamed K-pop tracks of 2022, featuring songs from artists like BTS, BLACKPINK, IVE and more.

The music streaming service launched its annual Spotify Wrapped event yesterday (November 30), sharing data on the platform’s most-streamed artists, music and podcasts, as well as allowing individual users to look back on personalised listening statistics in the past year.

As part of the Wrapped 2022 launch, Spotify also shared a list of the top 50 K-pop songs with the most streams this year. Three BTS songs have emerged in the top five of the list this year: 2020 track ‘Dynamite’ and 2021’s ‘Butter’ nabbed the first two spots respectively, while ‘Yet To Come’, lifted from their ‘Proof’ anthology album released this year, came in fifth. Last year’s list saw ‘Butter’ in first place and ‘Dynamite’ in second.


The list’s third and fourth spots went to girl group BLACKPINK; ‘Pink Venom’ claimed its spot as the third most-streamed K-pop song of the year, while member Lisa’s solo song ‘Money’ came in fourth.

K-pop newcomers IVE claimed the sixth spot on the list with breakout hit ‘Love Dive’, while BLACKPINK followed after with comeback song ‘Shut Down’. Completing the top 10 are BTS member V’s ‘Christmas Tree’, BTS’ ‘Permission To Dance’ and ‘With You’ by BTS’ Jimin and soloist Ha Sung-woon, respectively. ‘With You’ was a track released as part of the official soundtrack of K-drama Our Blues
