Drake has been the hottest in the game this year and this ain’t bout HipHop, I’m talking about music generally. From chat breaking Single One Dance ft Nigerian pop star Wizkid & kyle to record breaking Album Views. I think this cat is unstoppable!
According to BillBoard This is Drake’s second year in a row as the world’s most streamed artist, receiving more than 4.7 billion streams — more than double the 1.8 billion he saw last year. He is the most streamed artist of all time on Spotify with over 8.7 billion streams.
“With the top album and the top song this year, as well as his successful Summer Sixteen tour, he continues to engage his fans in a way that only Drake can; it’s no surprise he is dominating the music industry.” says Spotify’s chief content & chief strategy officer Stefan Blom.
Bieber and Rihanna, meanwhile are ranking second and third on both the international top artists list and the most streamed albums list, respectively.
Rihanna also topped the most streamed female artists list and was the most popular R&B act.
