The music of Ben&Ben and BTS served as the soundtrack for 2021 for most Filipinos based on Spotify's yearly round-up.

Ben&Ben emerged as the most streamed OPM artist for the second straight year, followed by Moira Dela Torre, Skusta Clee, Zack Tabudlo, and Arthur Nery.

The folk pop rock band was also the fourth most streamed artist in the Philippines, and ranked alongside international music icons like BTS (No. 1), Taylor Swift (No. 2), Justin Bieber (No. 3), and Ariana Grande (No. 5). Their LIMASAWA STREET was the fourth most streamed album in the country this year.

BTS, meanwhile, was the country’s top streamed K-Pop artist, followed by TWICE, BLACKPINK, IU, and SEVENTEEN. The septet’s BE clinched the fourth spot in the country’s most streamed albums.

The K-pop sensation's smash hit Butter was also the country’s second most streamed song in 2021. The Voice Kids alumnus Tabudlo’s Binibini was on top of the list, joined by global artists with Filipino roots: Olivia Rodrigo with driver’s license (No. 3) and Silk Sonic’s Bruno Mars with Leave the Door Open (No. 5). Rodrigo’s award-winning song was also the most streamed song globally.

Rodrigo’s good 4 u landed fourth spot on the most streamed songs globally. Her critically acclaimed debut album SOUR was the most streamed album in the Philippines—and in the world.
