The UK’s music

  • The UK’s music consumption rose for a seventh successive year in 2021, with streaming accounting for 83% of the total, according to figures. In June, the country saw its first week in which audio streams topped the 3 billion mark – a feat that was repeated three times in December, record labels association the BPI said. Some 180 artists reached more than 100 million streams in the UK over the past 12 months.
