After Spotify analyzed over 20 billion tracks across the globe, the company determined that hip hop was the most streamed genre in the world.

I am talking to you, Geraldo Rivera. Their “Musical Map: Cities of the World,” is updated bi-monthly with the most played songs in each city. According to Spotify, its purpose is to help users discover music from around the world. Check out the map for yourself here.
