The leading on-demand music platform has managed to surpass over 10 billion streams in 2019, a new milestone for the service in the MENA region.
As part of the celebration of this new milestone, the service launched the #Anghami2019InMusic campaign. Through its platform, Anghami users can now check what happened musically in 2019 across the region in terms of artists, albums and songs that topped the charts. They can also access personalized music moments, revisit their top artists of the year, top songs, most consumed music, and listening behaviors.
Elie Habib, co-founder at Anghami, says: “This is a great accomplishment for Anghami and we would like to celebrate it with our users across the region with our #Anghami2019InMusic campaign. Accessible on the platform, users can now celebrate their musical moments for the year and can share them on social media channels.”
The platform also released the top music trends, newcomers, top performers and albums of 2019. Ensay by Saad Lamjarred & Mohamed Ramadan nabbed the title of the most-streamed Arabic song, followed by Ya betfaker ya bethess by Sherine Abdel Wahab and Men el bidaya by Mohamed Hamaki.
The spot for most-streamed international song of the year was Seniorita by Shawn Mendes & Camila Cabello, followed by 7 rings by Ariana Grande and It’s you by Ali Gatie.
The platform also observed an uprising of music productions from local artists across the region. From Arabic Indie to Hip-Hop to Pop, 2019 was a bountiful year for all kinds of music. Top regional artists such as Nassif Zeytoun, Hussein Al Jassmi and Amr Diab amongst others defined the year with massive popularity.
