  /  12.01.2015

The year of Drake continues. After tying The Beatles’ Hot 100 record, the rapper has earned another feat: most streamed artist of the year.

According to Spotify, Drake racked up 1.8 billion streams in 2015 thanks in part to his hit “Hotline Bling,” mixtape If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, and joint album with Future, What a Time to Be Alive.

Rihanna is the year’s most streamed female artist with 1 billion streams, while Major Lazer’s “Lean On” is the most streamed song of 2015 with 540 million streams.

The Weeknd’s Beauty Behind the Madness is the most streamed album of 2015 worldwide, followed by Drake’s If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late.

Drake takes the crown from last year’s most streamed artist, Ed Sheeran, who is second this year. He is followed by The Weeknd, Maroon 5, and Kanye West in the global top five.

In the U.S., the top five most streamed artists are Drake, The Weeknd, West, Sheeran, and Eminem. Drake’s If You’re Reading This is the most streamed album in the U.S., while Fetty Wap’s “Trap Queen” tops the most streamed U.S. songs.
