Peso Pluma surpasses Luis Miguel as the most-streamed Mexican artist on Spotify

Peso Pluma becomes the new king of Mexican Spotify, as corridos tumbados take the lead, signifying a music preference shift in 2023.

Mexican singer Peso Pluma, known for the corridos tumbados genre, took Luis Miguel’s throne. The emerging artist took the “crown” of the most popular Mexican on the Spotify platform with the song “Ella Baila Sola,” leaving behind “Ahora Te Puedes Marchar,” a single by El Sol de México, former owner of the title “most played artist” in the Aztec land.

With this achievement, Peso Pluma becomes the king of Spotify, making it clear that the public in 2023 prefers corridos tumbados to ballads. The Twitter account @PesoPlumaData revealed that the 24-year-old singer managed to take Luismi’s place.

Spotify had the singer of “Incondicional” among the most listened to. Still, with the resounding success of the song “Ella Baila Sola” by Peso Pluma, the balance changed: “Ella baila sola remains at #1 on Spotify Global with 5,814,757 streams,” wrote the Mexican fan account, and the song already has more than 555 million plays, making it the fourth song by an Aztec artist to reach that number, unseating El Sol de Mexico.

Luxurious birthday

Hassan Kabande Laija, Peso Pluma’s first name, turned 24 years old on June 15, a date he took advantage of to celebrate one more year of life. The artist celebrated his birthday in Guadalajara, Mexico.

According to videos shared online, the party was luxurious and had several well-known guests, such as Erick Aragón, Luis R. Conriquez, and Jasiel Núñez. At the celebration, the reference to corridos tumbados delighted those present with his songs, such as his recent hit released with Argentinean producer Bizarrap, Music Sessions 55.
