Taylor Swift is undoubtedly one of the biggest music superstars in the world at the moment. But The Weeknd has been giving her tough competition at every turn. Pop Crave recently rolled out a post regarding a new victory The Weeknd has made on Spotify, revealing how the Grammy winner has become the most monthly listener artist in the world. He has racked up over 110 million streams on the platform in the past year.

Through this major milestone, he reclaimed his throne, which the ‘Lover’ singer took from him in November 2023. She overtook the rapper with a jaw-dropping 105.335 million monthly listeners on Spotify. Now this news puts both iconic superstars again in a head-to-head competition. However, considering the waves Swift has made in the past year, it is safe to assume that she might topple his numbers again.
