The Weeknd just took Justin Bieber‘s position as Prince of Pop! Abel has recently passed Bieber in terms of Spotify listenership, and this puts him ahead of the latter.
The Weeknd has over 85.6 million monthly listeners on the music app, making him the most popular artist on the service.The monthly Spotify listens are a big increase over where we seen Justin Bieber at this time last year (85.6m vs 83.3m).
The big increase of course is due to the recent release of the album Dawn FM featuring the hot single “Take My Breath“.
When it comes to the Prince of Pop, some argue that The Weeknd has a bit more work to do because Justin has an all-time high Spotify record that no one has been able to match just yet.
