After various complaints from fans, Spotify has issued a statement admitting there was an error in its “Top Kpop Artists Of 2022.’
Earlier this week, Spotify officially unveiled its yearly wrapped lists. There were dedicated categories for Kpop artists too. Among them was one about the top 10, the list was as follows:
4. Stray Kids
6. TOMORROW X TOGETHER
10. Red Velvet
Spotify said, “Every year, we endeavor to accurately reflect consumption around the world. In reference to our Top K-Pop Artists of 2022 playlist, multiple genre tags led to slightly different top ten lists, and they were not properly merged. This mistake has been corrected. We join the fans in celebrating the many achievements of BTS and regret this error.”
After the error was corrected, BTS’s Jungkook was added to No. 9 and (G)I-DLE was pushed back to NO. 10.
