BTS is the second most-streamed group for 2018 on Spotify, following Imagine Dragons.

As part of their "What the World Listened to in 2018" review, Spotify released the top songs and artists of 2018. Following Imagine Dragons and BTS in the top two spots were Maroon 5, Migos and Coldplay, respectively. Although Imagine Dragons took the win for the most-streamed group, BTS was the only K-Pop group to be featured on any "What the World Listened to" list. 

BTS currently has almost 11 million monthly listeners on Spotify, making them the 211th in the world. The top 5 locations of these monthly listeners are Jakarta (347,764 listeners), Quezon City (289,369 listeners), Singapore (235,611 listeners), Los Angeles (189,806 listeners) and Mexico City (168,150 listeners). On top of the group’s success, leader RM released his solo album mono in October and currently has 1.2 million monthly listeners.
