Spotify Wrapped 2022: OPM Artists NOBITA, Zack Tabudlo, and Ben&Ben Lead the Charts

Spotify unveils its 2022 Wrapped campaign — announcing the top artists, albums, songs, playlists, and podcasts that showcase the vibrant kaleidoscope of more than 456 million listeners around the world. Spotify users can also find their personalized Wrapped experience, with latest features that celebrate how they soundtracked their year.

Globally, Bad Bunny, Taylor Swift and Drake topped the Wrapped lists across most-streamed album, track and artist. For the third year in a row, Puerto Rican rapper Bad Bunny took the number one spot for most-streamed artist globally, with more than 18.5 billion streams this year.

Closer to home, FIlipinos are taking their Wrapped results local.

Outranking global hits, NOBITA’s Ikaw Lang is the most streamed track in the Philippines, followed by Arthur Nery’s Pagsamo (#2), Adie’s Paraluman (#3), Zack Tabudlo’s Pano (#4) and Arthur Nery’s Isa lang (#5). Listeners are feeling all the hugot this year, where Pinoy love songs take center stage, even beating out Troye Sivan’s Angel Baby (#6) and Justin Bieber’s Ghost (#11).

Jaeson, Mark, Roman, Sam and Richmond of NOBITA thank their ‘Nobibis’ who helped put them on top, “We are truly honored to be part of Spotify’s Wrapped Top Lists this year and be recognized alongside other great Pinoy artists. Undeniably, our fans had been a huge part of this but we’re also grateful for Spotify’s untiring support to our music and its clear vision for their artists. Like most artists, we’re also eager to see our band’s Wrapped and see what we have done throughout 2022 as musicians.”

Clinching five out of the top ten spots in this year’s Top Artists are Pinoys, and breaking through the list is Zack Tabudlo, who secured the #3 spot and emerged as this year’s Top Local Artist. Pulling listeners into his own cinematic universe, Tabudlo’s cathartic “Episode” album is also the second most streamed album in the country. Ben&Ben proved themselves to be a mainstay among the local favorites as they maintained their fourth place from 2021 and kept a spot in the top list for the fourth consecutive year.

“We are thrilled to see that Filipino artists have continued to shine on the local stage, as seen on 2022’s Spotify Wrapped results. This shows that the Philippines are increasingly listening to and supporting their homegrown talent and we have seen an almost 50% increase in streams of local music the past year” said Kossy Ng, Head of Music, Spotify Asia. “We’re excited to continue working closely with local musicians and pave the way for more aspiring artists to flourish on the platform.”

Spotify’s RADAR program, an initiative to support emerging artists, has enabled new local artists and tracks to be added to the daily soundtrack of Filipinos’ lives. Other emerging artists like P-Pop groups, BGYO and BINI, are amongst the Top RADAR Philippines Artists, alongside Adie.

It has been another stellar year for podcasts in the Philippines, as Spotify continued to launch Exclusive and Original content with a slate of Filipino podcasting talent. Pinoy creators reign in this year’s Top Podcasts. Intimate sharing of life stories and advice are a hit amongst Filipinos with Barangay Love Stories, Spotify Exclusive skypodcast, Dear MOR: The Podcast, and Spotify Original Hugot Marcelo taking up the top four spots. Comedic conversations also resonate amongst locals with Spotify Exclusive Punchline with Alex Calleja taking up the fifth spot.

“Our Spotify Exclusive skypodcast is our first collaboration together as a couple, and it had been truly amazing to receive overwhelming support from our #skyfam. Podcasting has enabled us to talk in-depth about intimate topics. It’s even been a real help for our relationship as we’re able to spend time together and discuss things we normally wouldn’t. Being part of Spotify’s Wrapped Top Lists inspires us to keep growing as individuals so we can keep sharing new ideas to our listeners.” shares Kryz Uy of skypodcast.

Starting today, eligible users can also access their personalized 2022 Wrapped experience exclusively in their updated Spotify mobile app (iOS and Android). As an added treat to this year’s Wrapped season, Spotify is bringing Wrraped Playground to the Philippines! Between 10-11 December, Filipinos are invited to come to play at SM Mall of Asia (MoA). Experience different exciting activities and catch none other than BINI and BGYO!

A night of love, hugot and cover songs as Boyce Avenue returns for a Philippine Tour on February 2023

The “Boyce” are coming back to their second home – the Philippines. One of the biggest independent bands in the world – Boyce Avenue, are returning for the Valentine’s week. They will be performing in MANILA on February 11th at the Araneta Coliseum, in CEBU on February 12th at the Waterfront Hotel Ballroom, and in DAVAO on February 14th at the SMX Convention Center. Joining them are today’s O.P.M. hitmakers Adie, Nobita and (Manila show only) The Juans.

Boyce Avenue is a Florida-based band whose name is a combination of two streets they grew up on in Sarasota. The band is popular for its strong acoustic roots and consists of the three Manzano brothers – Alejandro (lead vocals, guitar, piano), Fabian (guitar, vocals) and Daniel (bass, percussion, vocals). The band was formed in 2004 and in 2007 they began posting their videos on YouTube to great success. To date, they have over 4.8 Billion YouTube views and over 13.2 Million subscribers, making their channel one of the most popular in the world. The band frequently tours North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Australia, the Middle East and visits new countries every year.

Singer-songwriter Adie is best known for his massive hits “Paraluman”, “Tahanan”, “Dungaw” and “Mahika” which features Janine Berdin, and is currently one of the top artists on Spotify Philippines with over 3.6 million monthly listeners. OPM band Nobita burst into the music scene with their mega-hit “Ikaw Lang” and wedding-themed track “Unang Sayaw”, and also reached a new milestone in their career for achieving more than 130 million streams on Spotify alone. They are also joined in Manila by pop rock band The Juans, who are behind the chart-topping hits “Hindi Tayo Pwede” and “Hatid”, and who recently had their first major concert at the Big Dome.

NOBITA deals with being at the bitter end of a relationship on hugot anthem ‘Totoo’

Driven by the success of their mega-hit “Ikaw Lang” and wedding-themed track “Unang Sayaw,” breakout band NOBITA has recently reached a new milestone in their career for achieving more than 90 million streams on Spotify alone.


Having mastered the art of writing hugot anthems inspired by the universality of long-term commitment and romantic desire, the five-piece act continues to make pop-rock tunes that leave listeners in a vulnerable state. This is evident on their 2022 single “Totoo,” released under Sony Music Philippines.


Written by lead guitarist Sam Aquino, produced by Isagani Palabyab of Monostery Studio, with arrangement and additional lyrics from the band, “Totoo” articulates the uncertainty of being lost and helplessly in love. Its songwriting comes from a place of earnestness, capturing the messiness of being at the bitter end of a relationship.


“Since may hit single kami about being certain for love, we decided to take turns by making a ‘counter song’ for a love song per se,” NOBITA said in a joint statement. “Our fans, Nobibis requested for us to make a song about ‘single’ and ‘unfortunate in love’ people. We decided to take the challenge to heart.”


Laced with suave instrumentation and heartfelt vocals, the song hits harder than usual, while retaining the earworm tendencies of their previous hits. As the chart-topping music act puts it, “We just simply want to keep the NOBITA flavor in all of our tracks.”


The release of “Totoo” comes with a music video that stars veteran actor Mon Confiado and popular content creator Eya Borja. Directed by NOBITA’s frequent collaborator John Selirio, the MV explores the intricacy of reliving memories and the pain of losing someone important.


NOBITA’s “Totoo” is out now on all digital music platforms worldwide via Sony Music Philippines.
