On July 15th, Spotify celebrated the first anniversary of its launch in Russia. In honor of this, the music streaming service named the Russian performers who are most often listened to outside of Russia. In the top ten, the great Russian composers Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff coexist with rap performers and members of the “pop” genre, for example t.A.T.u.
In 7th place is the cult duo t.A.T.u., which was talked about a lot in 2021 and which was even more listened to. The reason is the 20th anniversary of the debut album “200 Po Vstrechnoi”. Even though the pop duo officially disbanded back in 2011, they remain a successful Russian pop group abroad to this day.
Top 10 Russian artists amongst foreign listeners
- Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky
- Rauf & Faik
- Tony Igy

- Sergey Rachmaninoff
