  /  12.03.2019

Drake is ending the decade on top.

With more than 28 billion streams to his name, the rapper is Spotify’s most-streamed artist of the decade. The 6 God tops the streaming service’s “A Decade Wrapped” list, while his Wizkid and Kyla-assisted hit “One Dance” was the second most-streamed song of the last 10 years.

Following Drake is Ed Sheeran, whose “Shape of You” is also the most-streamed track of the decade with more than 2.3 billion streams. Post Malone, Ariana Grande, and Eminem round out the top five, comprised of the artists who dominated the last 10 years in streams.

Malone also earns top honors as the most-streamed artist of 2019. He racked up over 6.5 billion streams globally, thanks in part to his latest album, Hollywood’s Bleeding, which is the second most-streamed album globally this year.

Grande, who released her album thank u, next in February, tops Spotify’s most-streamed female artists of the decade, followed by Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Sia, and Beyoncé.

The most streamed song of 2019 is Shawn Mendes and Camilla Cabello’s “Señorita” with more than 1 billion streams, followed by Eilish’s “bad guy” with more than 990 million streams. “Sunflower,” Malone and Swae Lee’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse collab, is the year’s third most-streamed track, while Grande’s “7 rings” is No. 4 on the list. Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus’ record-breaking hit “Old Town Road – Remix” rounds out the top five.
