Spotify reveal which Aussies artists, songs and albums are streamed the most

They have crunched the numbers, and this morning revealed a slew of information about how Aussies artists are faring on the platform. Given Spotify is the way most people imbibe music these days, it’s safe to say this is a fair sizeable and reliable sample size.
