Spotify has just unveiled some of their year end stats for 2018 and it is no surprise that Drake has emerged as the most streamed artist on their platform.

This is Drake’s third non-consecutive year as the most streamed artist — he previously held the spot in 2015 and 2016 but lost to Ed Sheeran in 2017. With 8.2 billion streams in 2018 alone, the 6 God rapper is also Spotify’s most streamed artist of all time.

Additionally, his latest album Scorpion and the multi platinum single ‘God’s Plan’ were the most streamed album and song of 2018, respectively. Following Drake, Post Malone, XXXTENTACION, J Balvin and Ed Sheeran rounded out the Top 5 list of Most Streamed Artists in the world.

Ariana Grande’s 48 million plus monthly listeners make her Spotify’s most streamed female artist, following in the footsteps of three-time winner Rihanna.
