The audience has spoken, and Justin Bieber appears to be the undisputed king of Spotify music streaming. The artist surpassed Ariana Grande’s previous record on Spotify.

The 27-year-old singer, according to TMZ, now has the most monthly users on the famous music and podcasting app. According to the outlet, Bieber now has the most monthly listeners of any artist in the app’s history.

According to the report, Bieber currently has an astounding 83.3 million monthly listeners, far and away more than any other artist on the platform and a figure that has yet to be surpassed by any other artist in Spotify’s history. The singer was aided significantly by the success of his most recent album, ‘Justice,’ which continues to chart quite high on Spotify.

Indeed, according to a press release from Spotify charts on the most-streamed summer songs worldwide, from May 29 to August 22, 2021, Bieber appeared twice in the top 20 with “STAY,” his duet with The Kid LAROI, as well as “Peaches, ” featuring Daniel Caesar & Giveon. These songs were ranked sixth and thirteenth, respectively.

However, Olivia Rodrigo’s “good 4 u” was crowned “Song of the Summer” and earned the No. 1 place.

As New Musical Express does, it’s important to note that the total number of monthly listeners fluctuates. Bieber is far ahead of The Weeknd, who achieved 74.5 million monthly listeners, and Ed Sheeran, who reached 72.4 million.

His closest contemporary, though, is Ariana Grande. She once surpassed 82 million monthly listeners but has since slipped closer to 60 following the publication of her last album more than a year ago.

Meanwhile, Spotify continues to grow its podcast library, stating last week that Jor Rogan’s “The Joe Rogan Experience” is the most-listened-to podcast on the platform since it launched exclusively on the platform less than a year ago.
