Spotify has listed its ‘most-streamed artistes of all time’, and Canadian rapper Drake is leading the pack.
Spotify is the music industry’s leading streaming service, and it accumulates millions of streams daily.
Drake, who was recently listed in Forbes as the third highest-paid hip hop act of 2019, earned most of his funds from streaming. So, it was no surprise when the rapper was crowned the most streamed artiste of all time.
The rapper’s 2018 hit, God’s Plan, was the most streamed song in a day on Spotify. To date, the song has been streamed more than one billion times. The other hits that gave Drake the prestigious title are In My Feelings with 840 million streams and Hotline Bling with 813 million streams.
Drake also made the list for his collaborations like One Dance with Wizkid and Kyla. That song was streamed more than 1.6 billion times. And it is no surprise that Rihanna’s Work, which he was featured on, was streamed more than 880 million times.
Some of the other acts who made Spotify’s list are Ed Sheeran, Eminem, Ariana Grande, Post Malone, Justin Bieber, The Weeknd, Rihanna, Coldplay and Imagine Dragons.
