Spotify has presented the latest list of artists whose music has been streamed the most.

The company says the Toronto rapper was its most-streamed artist of the decade, both globally and in Canada.

British crooner Ed Sheeran, hip hop warbler Post Malone, pop royalty Ariana Grande and rap iconoclast Eminem rounded out the top 5 most-streamed artists between 2010 and 2019, Spotify said.

The numbers are in and, according to Spotify, 2019 may have belonged to Post Malone-but Drake took the decade. Trailing behind Drizzy, the second most streamed artist of the decade was Ed Sheeran, followed by third place victor Post Malone. As for the most streamed songs, Sheeran's "Shape of You" took the top spot, followed by Drake's "One Dance" and Post Malone and 21 Savage's "rockstar".


Close on his heels was American teen sensation Billie Eilish, who last month was one of the top nominees for the upcoming Grammy Awards.

Spotify will also give users a playlist of all of their most-played songs to enjoy for the rest of the year.

2019's biggest song was Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello's Senorita. In second and third place were Billie Eilish and Ariana Grande.

Eilish's debut album, When We All Fall Asleep Where Do We Go, was also the year's most popular album - the first time a female artist has topped Spotify's end-of-year survey. With more than 1 billion streams, it was the year's most-streamed song.
