Spotify has unveiled the first Global Impact List in Kenya, recognising the top 15 tracks from Kenya with the biggest global impact on Spotify over the first half of 2024.

The list recognises Kenyan tracks that have had the most listens from outside Kenya in the first half of 2024 and were released between January 1 and June 30.

The list is dominated by Arbantone tracks, a genre that is fast gaining popularity, especially amongst Gen Z in Kenya. Other key genres include Afrofusion and RnB.

Phiona Okumu, Spotify's Head of Music, Sub-Saharan Africa, said, "Spotify’s Global Impact List shows the power of music streaming, and how local artists can use it to position themselves globally. We are committed to continuing the journey with Kenyan artists to help them make an even bigger impact.”

Below is the list of top Kenyan songs with the biggest global streaming numbers.
