Drake is the most-streamed artist of the year globally on Spotify and Apple Music and tops Billboard magazine’s year-end charts. According to the trade publication, he’s also only the second Canadian artist to rank 1st on the year-end, following Alanis Morissette’s wildly successful year in 1996 with the album Jagged Little Pill.


Spotify announced Tuesday that the Toronto-born rapper earned 8.2 billion streams in 2018. He also has the year's most-streamed album and song with Scorpion and God's Plan.

Drake is also Spotify's most-streamed artist of all-time.

Apple released its Best of 2018 list Tuesday. Drake's Scorpion was the top album on the platform, while his hit God's Plan was the most popular single. The rapper's song Nice for What came in second and In My Feelings at No. 4.
