Tanishk Bagchi, Dhvani Bhanushali and Asees Kaur occupied the top three positions for India’s top breakout artists; Post Malone dominated listening in India by being the only international act to feature among India’s top streamed artists this year.

“In terms of the streaming mood this year, India loved to love and chill, with love being India’s top mood, based on the (state-wise) consumption of Spotify’s mood-themed playlists. The top love-themed playlists, included Bollywood Mush and Warm Fuzzy Feeling, while popular chill-themed ones included Bollywood Acoustic and Chill Tracks,” the company said.
