Pandora reveals 2022 Top Thumb Hundred

Future lands at top of the list

Pandora has revealed its Top Thumb Hundred of 2022, the annual ranking of the most-loved songs by Pandora listeners, with Grammy Award-winning rapper Future taking the top spot with “Wait For U” featuring Drake & Tems. Latin superstar Bad Bunny has the most songs on the list, with five of his hits making the Top Thumb Hundred for 2022. The countdown playlist launches today (Tues, Nov 29th) and is hosted by Pandora programmers J1 and Melony Torres.

In addition to his No. 1 track, Future makes the Top Thumb Hundred of 2022 with the track “Worst Day” at No. 86. He also appears on hits such as “Me or Sum” featuring Future & Lil Baby by Nardo Wick at No. 56; “Pushin P” featuring Young Thug by Gunna & Future at No. 62; and “Beautiful” featuring Future & SZA by DJ Khaled at No. 73. The rapper earned his heavy presence on the year-end list by effortlessly flowing through different sub genres of hip hop and successfully collaborating with his chart-topping peers.

Latin music made a tremendous mark on this year’s list with artists such as Bad Bunny, Karol G (“Provenza” at No. 2), Becky G (MAMIII at No. 17), and more landing in the Top 20. Bad Bunny’s collaborations with other Latin artists secured him three of his five spots on the list with “Me Porto Bonito” (Chencho Corleone) coming in at No. 8, “Party” (Rauw Alejandro) coming in at No. 22, and “Ojitos Lindos” (Bomba Estéreo) coming in at No. 49. The list also includes Bad Bunny’s “Moscow Mule” at No. 67 and “Efecto” at No. 82.
