Rapper Bad Bunny Is Spotify's Most Streamed Artist Of 2020

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "SI VEO A TU MAMA")

BAD BUNNY: (Singing in Spanish).

LULU GARCIA-NAVARRO, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Lulu Garcia-Navarro. It's official - Puerto Rican rapper Bad Bunny is Spotify's most streamed artist of 2020. He only sings in Spanish, a sign of the growing power of Hispanic music. His album "YHLQMDLG" is the most streamed globally. It stands for (speaking Spanish) - or, I do whatever I want. It's the first time an artist who never sings in English tops the year-end list. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
