As we edge closer towards the 2020 finish-line, it’s a great time to discover how we interacted with music this year. Considering the strange and unexpected events that shaped this year (mainly the global Coronavirus pandemic), music remained a source of hope and solace for the world.

For Boomplay, the mission remained the same, which is to give Africans the best music experience possible with its amazing catalog of over 44 million songs.

His song ‘Bad Influence’ off his debut EP ‘Get Layd’ was the most streamed song on Boomplay this year, followed by Simi’s ‘Duduke’ while the song that can be arguably called the collaboration of the year, ‘Nobody’ by DJ Neptune, Joeboy and Mr Eazi closed in at #3. As for albums, Fireboy DML is proving to be an exceptional artist.

His sophomore album ‘Apollo’ was the third most-streamed album of 2020 but his debut project ‘Laughter, Tears and Goosebumps’ was not left out of the race as it took the top spot as the most-streamed album in 2020 while Burna Boy’s “Twice As Tall” proudly occupies the number 2 spot.
