Without further ado, here it is…

‘Ella Baila Sola’, the hit collaboration by Mexican artists Eslabon Armado and Peso Pluma, has topped Spotify’s Most-Streamed Songs of Summer Globally this year.

“Watching the rise of ‘Ella Baila Sola’ to become the global song of the summer has been truly exhilarating,” the Head of US Latin Editorial at Spotify, Antonio Vazquez, said about the song’s No. 1 position. “It’s a testament to how música Mexicana is not only capturing hearts but also dominating the international music scene and becoming one of the top growth-driving genres globally. This feels like an important milestone, and it’s only getting started.”

He’s not wrong – from música Mexicana to reggaetón, Latin music artists featured prominently in both the Top Songs globally and made up 25% of the Top 20 US list.

The top song in the US is Morgan Wallen’s track ‘Last Night’ – the first country song to claim the title on Spotify. 

‘Ella Baila Sola’ claims the No. 2 spot, while and Taylor Swift’s ‘Cruel Summer’ holds down the number three position.

Spotify noted that “emotions ruled” the lists, with revenge pop anthems like ‘vampire’ by Olivia Rodrigo, ‘Kill Bill’ by SZA, ‘Boy’s a Liar Pt. 2’ by PinkPantheress and Ice Spice, and, of course, Taylor Swift’s ‘Cruel Summer’.

The streaming service also singled out the dominance of Barbie in the lists. Indeed, the film that is on its way to becoming 2023’s biggest film also drove streams, with two tracks from ‘Barbie The Album’ making the Top 20 list: ‘Barbie World (with Aqua)’ by Nicki Minaj and Ice Spice, and ‘Dance The Night’ by Dua Lipa.

Also worth noting are the summer audiobook reads, with data revealing that R.F. Kuang’s ‘Yellowface’ tops the list.

This highly immersive satirical novel takes the reader on a thrilling journey about a literary heist. It’s a frequently funny and damning critique of the behind-the-curtain realities of the modern publishing world, as well as a sharp indictment of white privilege and cultural appropriation (how do we decide who has the right to tell a story?). It featured prominently in our Best Books of 2023 So Far list.

Here is the full breakdown:
