YouTube, SoundCloud and Pandora launch year-end reviews


You’re not fed up with streaming services’ end-of-year charts and reviews yet? Good, because three more dropped in the last 24 hours.

YouTube’s is more focused on trends such as livestreaming (including 3.3 million peak concurrent viewers for a Marília Mendonça performance), hip-hop and K-Pop (BTS and Blackpink now have eight of the 10 biggest 24-hour debuts ever on YouTube).

SoundCloud’s ‘Playback‘ review revealed that its top musician of 2020 was Brooklyn drill artist Pop Smoke, whose music was streamed more than 191.5m times on the platform this year. Lil Mosey’s ‘Blueberry Faygo’ was the top track with 54.6m streams, while the top DJ set was a Halloween mix by RL Grime that was played 551.4k times.

Finally, Pandora’s ‘Top Thumb Hundred 2020’ chart is topped by Cardi B ft. Megan Thee Stallion’s ‘WAP’, one of the latter artist’s eight tracks in the top 100 this year.
