And so the BTS trend continues. Their version of “Idol” featuring Nicki Minaj managed to amass 60.9+ million streams in just a few months, earning this version the halfway mark of #5 on the list.

#4 – Idol (BTS)

The version of “Idol” without Nicki managed to edge out the version with her narrowly, having been streamed 61+ million times since its release in August giving it the spot of #4 on this list.

#3 – BBoom BBoom (MOMOLAND)

At #3, we have the viral hit from MOMOLAND which catapulted them out of “nugu” status. Since “BBoom BBoom” exploded in January it has been streamed 70+ million times on Spotify.

#2 – Ddu-Du Ddu-Du (BLACKPINK)

BLACKPINK’s long awaited release was an instant hit around the world. It racked up an impressive 111+ million streams since it’s release in the Summer to give it the runner up spot on this list.
