The nation's girl group BINI is now the Philippines' top artist on Spotify after surpassing Taylor Swift as the country's most-listened-to singer.

The group marked the achievement on June 14, as per Spotify Charts. Star Music Philippines took to social media to celebrate the milestone.


"Isang nakaka-feel good na Sunday as our [BINI] makes herstory by being the first Filipino act to reach the #1 spot on the Spotify Philippines Daily Top Artists Chart. Congratulations, girls!"

The girl group first entered the charts on February 9, 2024 at number 190. They've been in the ranking for 128 days before reaching the peak spot. 

The top daily artist on Spotify Philippines was previously singer-songwriter Taylor Swift, who held the spot for 968 days. In 2022, Quezon City was among the Tortured Poets Department singer's top listeners in the world.

The third spot in the local chart is occupied by Hev Abi, followed by Ariana Grande, Sabrina Carpenter, Maki, TJ Monterde, SZA, Al James, and Billie Eilish.

BINI has over 6.5 million monthly listeners on Spotify, with their hit song Pantropiko earning over 80 million plays, as of writing.

The group recently celebrated its third anniversary on June 11 with a gathering at One Ayala Makati and the launch of their website a day earlier.

On June 12, they performed at Musikalayaan at Quirino Grandstand but had to cut it short as some members of the crowd began to get closer to the stage, with others climbing on the scaffolding and a few fainting.

Formed in 2019, BINI is composed of Jhoanna, Maloi, Stacey, Aiah, Colet, Gwen, Mikha, and Sheena.
