Not Alka Yagnik Or Drake, THIS Singer Has Replaced Arijit Singh As The Second-Most Followed Artist On A Streaming Site
Indian singing sensation Arijit Singh has always enjoyed massive success with his regular releases of soulful Hindi songs, which always struck a chord with millions, earning him the title of the second most followed artist on Spotify. But, that has changed just recently.
At the Grammy Awards, Taylor Swift made history by winning the Album of the Year award for the fourth time, a feat no performer had achieved before. Her Eras Tour, which was a hit around the world, and her romantic connection with Travis Kelce from the Kansas City Chiefs of the National Football League, made her even more relatable to her already huge fanbase.
In a surprising twist, Arijit Singh overtook Taylor Swift on Spotify a couple of months ago, claiming the spot as the second-most-followed artist on the platform.
With Super Bowl fever in full swing, Taylor Swift's cheerful presence at her boyfriend Travis Kelce's football games added to the American football craze and made her music resonate with an even wider audience, with football fans sporting her Era's Tour t-shirts.
Taylor's hugely popular song, Anti Hero, has once again surpassed Singh to become the second most followed Spotify artist.
According to Spotify statistics, Ed Sheeran remains at the top with the most Spotify followers.
As of February 11, Swift has 101,081,218 followers on Spotify, while Arijit Singh has 100,883,025 followers. Ed Sheeran, on the other hand, remains firmly at the top of the Most Followed Artists on Spotify chart with 113,404,496 followers. Ariana Grande follows in the fourth spot, followed by Billie Eilish, Drake, and Eminem.
The Tortured Poets Department is Taylor Swift's upcoming eleventh studio album, set for release on April 19, 2024.
