The end of the year is upon us and you know what that means! Spotify‘s 2021 Wrapped Campaign is live and users everywhere are turning to the music streaming platform to see their entire year in music wrapped up in a couple of fun slides.
BTS takes the #1 spot as the Top K-Pop Artist listened to globally, and #3 in the Top Global Artists category under Bad Bunny and Taylor Swift.
With their chart topping single “Butter,” breaking so many records in both the United States and Korea this past year, it’s no surprise that it made #1 on the Top K-Pop Songs Globally list. BTS actually held 6 of the 10 spots!
So while they’ve managed to make a name for themselves on Spotify, many ARMYs noted that if BTS had their SoundCloud songs on Spotify, they would’ve made an even bigger wave. Created in 2007, SoundCloud is an “artist first platform” where artists can share their music, and listeners can come and discover new music.
With over 4 million followers on SoundCloud, BTS members will occasionally use this platform to drop “gifts” for ARMYs.
The reason SoundCloud is so special to ARMYs is because a good handful of the songs dropped on the platform can only be found on that platform. Not Spotify. Not Apple Music. And with it being a little more personalized by each member, the artwork for the tracks are cool to look at too!
These are the 10 BTS SoundCloud songs we would have on our Wrapped list if they were on Spotify.
1. “Abyss” by Jin
2. “Born Singer” by BTS
3. “Still With You” by Jungkook
4. “Winter Bear” by V
5. “Scenery” by V
6. “4 O’CLOCK” by RM & V
7. “Young Forever (Unplugged version)” by BTS
8. “Promise” by Jimin
9. “Blue Side” by J-Hope
10. “Ddaeng” by RM, Suga, and J-Hope
Here’s to hoping they’ll one day release these tracks on Spotify too!
