Australia is a country full of Beliebers.
In preparation for Spotify’s fourth birthday in the land Down Under, the music streaming service’s has unveiled a list of the music Australians like to listen to the most.
And it seems we love Justin Bieber more than any other artist.
The Canadian popstar knocked Ed Sheeran from the top spot after releasing his album, Purpose, last year. Beiber also has four tracks in Australia’s top ten streamed songs including What Do You Mean, Sorry, Love Yourself and Where Are U Now.
The most streamed Australian artist is Sia followed by Adelaide hip-hop group Hilltop Hoods, who rocketed to the second spot after the release of their 2016 album, Drinking From The Sun, Walking Under Stars Restrung. They were closely followed by the king of electronica, Flume.
Flume remains unchallenged with his self-titled 2012 album remaining as Australia’s most streamed Aussie album.
The list had some other, geographical surprises.
Based on streaming stats, Melbourne has the most eclectic taste, listening to 751 different genres, just beating Sydney (714 genres), Brisbane (692 genres), Perth (653 genres) and Adelaide (499 genres).
The city with the highest streamed gay pride-inspired playlist is Brisbane, followed by Sydney, Perth with Melbourne in fourth place.
