Israeli star Omer Adam, the most-streamed Israeli singer on Spotify in 2020, has broken a new record by filling the top eight positions on the Apple Music charts after launching his new album.
This is the first time all eight places on the Apple Music chart of most listened to songs in Israel are held by one Israeli singer.
The singer, known for his blend of Mizrahi (Middle Eastern) and Mediterranean rhythms with Western pop, has solidified his international career by collaborating with major global artists including reggaeton giant Nicki Jam and Gypsy Kings singer Chico Castillo. He is also Israel’s most successful singer in recent years.
Adam has released eight songs in a new album called The 8, which includes three new tracks and five others that have streamed separately in the past until Adam decided to release as part of an official album. In the past week, Adam has released a song from the album each day with each gaining enormous popularity, according to an announcement.
Spotify revealed last March that Adam was named the most-streamed artist in Israel in 2020 and also led the most-streamed album category for his album Omer, which was released at the beginning of the year.
Adam’s career took off in 2009 when he took part in Israel’s seventh season of “A Star Is Born,” the Israeli version of the hit tv reality singing competition American Idol. By 2010, he had released his first album. To date, Adam has released six albums, two mini-albums, and sold tens of thousands of tickets for performances around the world including in Israel, New York, and Dubai.
