Meanwhile, Lil Uzi Vert was the Most Followed Artist on Soundcloud, as he (at the time of this piece) stands at over 815,000 followers. Desiigner‘s GRAMMY-nominated single “Panda” took the title for Soundcloud’s Favorite Track, will well over 146 million streams, two millions “likes” and over 32,000 comments.

The term “Trap” was among the buzziest words of the year, with variations like “TRAPSOUL,” “AfroTrap,” “LatinTrap” and even “cloudrap” among the most used. Hip hop also lead the Top 5 Genres on the platform, with house, pop, electronic and rock following behind.
