JOOX unveils 2020 Music Annual Review, BTS, BLACKPINK, Dato' Sri Siti Nurhaliza, and Alan Walker among top-streamed artists in Malaysia

Music streaming platform JOOX is closing off the year with its 2020 music annual review for Malaysia.

With COVID-19 ravaging the world outside, nothing offers more of an escapade than indulging in our favourite content. For many, the go-to is music, which opens up countless possibilities from local music, K-pop, EDM, Pop, Rock, and more. 

Spotify Wrapped unveils the Top K-pop artists of 2020 - BTS, BLACKPINK, TWICE, Stray Kids, and more

Malaysians, for one, have been spending much time with their top songs and artists, as revealed by JOOX in a press release today (23/12). More specifically, JOOX users in Malaysia listen to an average of 20 songs each day – with the total amounting to watching an entire superhero film series 1.2 million times.

Among the top songs streamed on JOOX are ‘Sakit’ by Zynakal ft. YonnyBoii, Stuck with U’ by Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber, ‘Dance Money’ by Tones and I, ‘Memories’ by Maroon 5, and ‘How You Like That’ by BLACKPINK.

Diving deeper into the statistics, Alan Walker is crowned the top international artist listened to on JOOX, while Dato' Sri Siti Nurhaliza comes through as the top local artist, and BTS as the top K-pop artist.

Fridays and Saturdays saw more active sessions than other days of the week, while 5PM remains the peak hour for people to listen to music, perhaps giving music lovers a much-needed reprieve after a hard day at work. 

Others, on the other hand, channeled their emotions into singing, spurring JOOX’s newest QuickSing feature into use. ‘Peluang Kedua’ by Nabila Razali emerges as the most-sung song, with ‘Sakit’ by Zynakal ft. YonnyBoii, ‘Cinta Sejati’ by Bunga Citra Lestari, and more not far behind in the list.
