Marília Mendonça is the most listened artist in Brazil in 2022, according to Spotify

It was 2020 when the singer from the Brazilian state of Goiás, Marília Mendonça, considered one of the precursors of “feminejo”, reached the top of the charts on Spotify (SPOT) and broke the record for views in live broadcasts on YouTube in the midst of the covid-19 pandemic.

In 2022, Mendonça returned to the lead as the artist with the most streams in Brazil.

According to Spotify, she is in the 89th position in the global ranking of the most listened artists of this year. The singer passed away in November last year, at the age of 26, in a plane crash.
