With 28 billion streams over the past 10 years, Drake is Spotify's most-streamed artist of the decade, followed by Ed Sheeran, Post Malone, Ariana Grande, and Eminem. Trailing behind Drizzy, the second most streamed artist of the decade was Ed Sheeran, followed by third place victor Post Malone. That includes years like 2016, when he earned the most streamed album (VIEWS) and most streamed song ("One Dance") and 2018, when he smashed records with the release of "God's Plan."

Released in June, the island-flavoured duet has already been played one billion times. Billie Eilish, Grande, Sheeran and Bad Bunny round out the Top 5.

For 2019, it was rapper Post Malone who took the top spot with over 6.5 billion streams, followed by Billie Eilish, who also secured in excess of six billion.

In the United Kingdom, however, Eilish played second fiddle to Lewis Capaldi whose debut album, Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent, topped the chart.

The most streamed track of the decade was Sheeran's Shape of You, which accounted for 2.3 billion Spotify streams, while Camila Cabello's Señorita surpassed 1 billion streams as the most-streamed track of 2019.

Here are the music charts in full.

Other streaming services, including Apple Music and Amazon Music, are expected to reveal their own data later this month.
