Top Songs of 2020: New Zealand

The year 2020 was unlike any other, to say the least—so it makes sense that newer faces had an unusually outsized impact in music in New Zealand and across the world. Tones and I, the Aussie singer-songwriter behind the ubiquitous “Dance Monkey”, continued to rack up big numbers: “Dance Monkey” was Shazamed by music fans an eye-popping 24.6 million times globally in 2020, and she followed it up with “Never Seen the Rain” and “Bad Child”. Across the Pacific, Roddy Ricch emerged seemingly out of nowhere as a dominant force, with his single “The Box” picking up over 455 million streams worldwide. Our own BENEE continued to rack up huge numbers with “Glitter”, as well as “Supalonely”, “Soaked” and “Find an Island”. You can revisit these hits and the other most popular songs on Apple Music in New Zealand in 2020 right here.
