Drake didn't even appear in Spotify's most popular artists of 2014 charts. But this year he's the streaming service's the most streamed male artist in the world, with 1.8 million streams throughout 2015 and 56 million listeners. Second here is Ed Sheeran, who topped last year's list, and who has over 3 billion streams to date.

Rihanna tops the list for most streamed female artist, racking up 1 billion streams from 57 million listeners (more than Drake). Justin Bieber apparently set the record for most streams in a single day ever: 36 million on 13th November.
