2019 in review: music stats

Okay, so you might have seen my bookish stats post that I posted earlier today…. but here is the music version! Enjoy!


So this first set of statistics includes all the music I LISTENED to in 2019. Unsurprisingly, my most listened to songs, artists and genre were K-Pop. That being said, less than half of my listening was K-Pop, as you can see by the little genre chart on the right. The most surprising part of this was a) that I listen to a lot of native american music (must be the instrumental stuff I like) and b) that TWICE’s BDZ (Japanese song) was my most listened to song! I think I listened to it on repeat for about 2 weeks in the summer when I had it stuck in my head, and then never really listened to it again! I’m not surprised that GOT7 was my most listened to artist though- their albums this year were top-quality, and I went to a concert as well. I thought Queen’s Don’t Stop Me Now would be amongst my top songs, as well as MAX’s Hell’s Kitchen Angel, but apparently I didn’t listen to them as much as I thought I did!

Also can I just point out that I listen to music from over 40 countries this year. I’m pretty proud of that!

As for the songs I downloaded, I don’t have any stats on the non-Korean stuff (I will keep track this coming year), but of the 2019 releases I downloaded, the sub-genres and artist types were pretty varied. Female solo artists were my favourite, as was pop, followed closely by Ballad and R&B. I downloaded a fair bit of rock as well, but I tend to listen to most of my rock from western bands (shout out to Catfish & the Bottlemen who had a great year), so I’m not surprised that it was a bit lower than other genres.


I will be posting my definitive favourite songs of the year post soon, so please keep an eye out! In the meantime, have a chat in the comments!

  • What were your most-listened to artists and genres this year?
  • How is your music taste different to mine?
  • Are there any songs/artists I liked that you didn’t?

Happy listening,

Keira x.
