The Cali Rapper Ended 2022 at The Top of Spotify's Hip-Hop List

Kendrick Lamar only had to wait a few days to capture his first big win of the new year, as his fifth studio album Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers was named Spotify’s most-streamed rap album of 2022.

According to Chart Data, the album racked up more than 1.4 billion streams on the platform from the time of its release through Dec. 31. Kendrick had previously become the first rap artist to have a 2022 release to be streamed one billion times on Spotify, a feat Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers accomplished back in August, making it his fourth album overall to reach the mark.

Not far behind was NAV’s Demons Protected by Angels, Jack Harlow’s Come Home The Kids Miss You, Drake and 21 Savage’s Her Loss and Future’s I NEVER LIKED YOU to reportedly round out the Top 5.
