The rapper has the most streamed album and song — "Views" (2.45 billion) and "One Dance" (970 million) — on Spotify this year, it was announced late Wednesday.

Justin Bieber, Rihanna, twenty one pilots and Kanye West round out the top five artists of the year. The top albums following "Views" are Bieber's "Purpose," Rihanna's "Anti," twenty one pilots' "Blurryface" and The Weeknd's "Beauty Behind the Madness."
