Ed Sheeran Beats out Drake and The Weekend

Ed Sheeran Beats out Drake and The Weekend”

One artist in particular who's had an exceptional year is Rihanna.

His latest record "Divide" has also proven popular, finishing at the top of the year end list as the Top Album of 2017, and the singer songwriter is grateful for those who have supported him.

Spotify released its annual top-streamed list and it looks as though everyone loves to listen to the Fenty Beauty creator.

2017 Wrapped: Spotify reveals the most streamed artists, tracks, albums and genres both personalised and globally.

Hip-hop star Drake came in second on Spotify in 2017 and rapper Kendrick Lamar was fourth, with R&B singer The Weeknd, a protege of Drake, placing third. The animated film hit theaters in November 2016, but songs from the soundtrack such as "How Far I'll Go" have carried it through this year, too. "Thanks for all the support Apple Music and iTunes!"

And the victor for the most streamed artist on the streaming service is.

The ginger-haired pop guitarist was streamed more than any other artist in the year so far - not a surprise, considering his song "Shape of You", the fourth track on "Divide", reigns as Spotify's most streamed song ever. "Congratulations to Ed on an incredible achievement", said Spotify chief content officer Stefan Blom in a statement.

Ed's "Castle on the Hill" and "Galway Girl" also made the top five most streamed tracks in the United Kingdom as well as Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber's "Despacito" and French Montana's "Unforgettable". "Congratulations to Ed on an unbelievable achievement".
