Spotify is one of the most popular digital music platforms in the world. Recently, a list of 10 K-Pop solo artists with the highest total streams on Spotify has become a hot topic on a Korean forum. Here is the list.
- Statistics are gathered as of September 24, 2020.
- All individual artists who have their own Spotify account and have released solo music on Spotify (whether they have officially debuted as a solo artist or not) are included.
No.10: G-DRAGON (BIGBANG) – 207 million streams
No.9: SUGA (BTS) – 208.1 million streams

No.2: TAEYEON (SNSD) – 458 million streams
No.1: IU – 670 million streams
In this chart, Jay Park is the person most mentioned by Knet. Accordingly, many people are very surprised when the male singer can surpass other strong competitors to reach the top 3, and rank highest among the male artists in the chart.
Besides, many people also praised BTS‘s rappers. The reason is that out of all the above artists, RM, Suga and J-Hope are the only three individuals who have not officially debuted as solo artists, but only released free mixtape products for fans. their rankings are quite high, especially J-Hope received a lot of praise with 308 million streams.
Finally, IU asserted that she is not only the ‘Nation’s Little Sister’ in South Korea, but also has a great influence around the world (the platform has not officially launched in South Korea). Meanwhile, Taeyeon (SNSD) also showed a formidable influence, surpassing both PSY or Jay Park.
Some typical comments of Knet on the above list:
- Taeyeon debuted as an soloist in 2015. She’s amazing! She rarely features with other artists. So that’s why she is even more amazing.
- Wow, Jay Park is at the top of the male soloists. too!
- Jay Park is really cool. First of all, he’s not even an idol. He’s not from a big company either. Obviously, Jay Park’s music is doing better internationally than in South Korea.
- The BTS members are amazing, they haven’t officially made their solo debut yet.
- IU and Taeyeon are awesome, Jay Park is also at the top of the male side!
- G-Dragon’s position is not as high as I thought it would be…
- Sunmi’s really good too!
- J-Hope gets so many streams!
- IU is indeed a queen! But GD’s was lower than I expected.
- Wow, J-Hope’s number is really high!
- I was surprised to see Jay Park in the top 3!
