Love may be the main character in the vast majority of songs we listen to. And, on the contrary, music stars in many loving moments in which we participate, whether during a romantic dinner, when dinner is passed to dessert or, simply, when one is a little heartbroken and is dedicated to inflicting damage himself, selecting the saddest songs in the world. For all this, since relatively recently, we used Spotify, the most popular music streaming platform today.
The most listened to love songs 10 years ago and now
To celebrate Valentine's Day, Spotify has looked into its guts to offer us a very personal '10 Year Challenge 'in which it is revealed which have been the most listened to love songs in the world and in Spain in the last decade.
In these 10 years, reggaeton has prevailed over pop. If in 2009 the most listened to love song in Spain, on Spotify, was the immortal 'Halo' by Beyoncé, now, in 2019, we have 'Adán y Eva' by Paulo Londra , an obvious Latin theme that serves to demonstrate that now our romanticism is marked by the Spanish language.
Things change in the world ... in 2019. In 2009, the most listened to love song in the world was the aforementioned 'Halo' by Beyoncé and in 2019 the world is by Ariana Grande . His 'Thank u, next' is the most listened to (dis) love song in the world in 2019. English is still king despite the great push of Latin music, finding it in position 4 with the theme of Paulo Londra .
These are the remaining most listened to love songs in the world so far in 2019.
- "Without Me" - Halsey
- "Shallow" - Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga
- "Adam and Eve" - Paulo Londra
- "Dancing With A Stranger" - Sam Smith and Normani
