Your "Hotline Bling" Addiction Made Drake the Most-Streamed Artist of 2015


You listen to Kanye when you want to think about you; you listen to Drake when you want to curl up in the fetal position and think about every romantic partner who's ever done you wrong.

In a LOL/yay kind of development, hip-hop's king of emoting has overtaken Ed Sheeran as this year's most-streamed artist with more than 1.8 billion plays and 46 million listeners, according to a statement from the platform. (Sheeran still holds the title of most-streamed artist of all time, though, which should give Drizzy something else to feel down about.)

Other winners: Rihanna for most-streamed female artist, the Weeknd for most-streamed album, and Major Lazer's "Lean On" for most-streamed song. Congrats and much confetti to all.
