Apple Music Reveals 2023 Year-End Charts, Replay Experience

Apple Music revealed its 2023 Year-End charts, spotlighting the biggest songs of the year across Apple Music and Shazam. For the first time, the stats also include the songs music fans sang along to the most using Apple Music Sing. Additionally, Apple Music has introduced its Replay Experience once again for subscribers, providing a synopsis of their listening habits through 2023. This includes top songs, artists, albums, genres, and more.

Apple Music’s 2023 Year-End Charts

Through 2023, many songs broke chart records while genres like Música Mexicana and Afrobeats were embraced by more listeners worldwide than ever. Not surprisingly, Taylor Swift is Apple Music’s Artist of the Year for 2023. In the first 10 months of 2023, she saw 65 songs reach Apple Music’s Global Daily Top 100, which was more than any other artist. Apple Music subscribers overall listened to Taylor Swift tunes more than any other artist in the world, setting the record for the most listeners for any single artist in a single year for the service.

Beyond Swift, Morgan Wallen’s “Last Night” takes No. 1 on the Top Songs of 2023: Global, with more songs on Apple Music worldwide than any other song this year. It marks the first country song since “Old Town Road” (2019) to top the chart. In 2023, “Last Night” smashed the record for the country song with the most days at No. 1 on the Global Daily Top 100. All told, 11 country songs reach the Top Songs of 2023: Global chart, up from four last year. Wallen also scored the No. 1 album of the year with One Thing at a Time.

On the inaugural Top 100 2023: Sing chart, which counts down the top songs of the year by plays using the Apple Music Sing feature, J-Pop duo YOASOBI ruled with “アイドル (Idol).” That song lands also at No. 7 on the year-end top songs chart, marking the highest entry so far for a J-Pop song. It is one of two J-Pop songs making the top 10 of the global songs chart, a new record for the genre. OFFICIAL HIGE DANDISM’s “Subtitle” lands at No. 10. 

On the Top 100 2023: Shazam chart, Nigerian breakout star Rema rules with his Afrobeats “Calm Down,” exemplifying the growing global popularity of music from the African continent on Shazam. “Rush” by Ayra Starr and “People” by Libianca also end the year among the world’s top Shazamed songs. The remix to “Calm Down” featuring Selena Gomez finishes the year at No. 12 on the global songs chart — the highest entry ever for an African song. 

R&B also makes a particularly strong showing on the Year-End Charts, as SZA’s SOS was the second biggest album of the year on Apple Music worldwide. “Kill Bill” rules the Top 100 2023: Most-Read Lyrics chart, and also finishes at No. 3 on the global songs chart. R&B songs account for more of the top 10 on the chart than any other genre this year, with three. All told, 14 R&B songs make the chart — up from 11 last year. 

Before this year, no Música Mexicana song had managed to reach the year-end global songs chart. This year, there are a staggering four Música Mexicana songs. Cracking the top 20 is Peso Pluma and Eslabon Armado’s history-making “Ella Baila Sola” (No. 18), which became the first Música Mexicana track ever to reach the top three of the Global Daily Top 100. Elsewhere, Grupo Frontera and Bad Bunny’s “un x100to” lands at No. 70, followed by Peso Pluma and Natanael Cano’s “PRC” (No. 88) and Fuerza Regida and Grupo Frontera’s “Bebe Dame” (No. 99). 

On the Top Fitness Songs Chart, British dance duo Punctual lead with “Do It All Again (feat. Jordan Shaw),” and in the Top Songwriters Chart, Drake pulls in more streams than any other songwriter.
