Spotify has revealed its annual Year in Music list, named the most streamed artists, albums, tracks and moments as Kiwis and music lovers around the world – danced to 2018.

Hip hop megastar Drake has performed the best The place in many of the big categories, toppled Ed Sheeran who peaked the lists last year.

Globally, Drake is the most streamlined artist, album and track, with a total of 8.2 billion streams this year alone, making him Spotify’s most streamlined artist all the time.

Drake had similar success here in New Zealand, except when it came to the best album, where Kiwis seemed to prefer Post Malone’s Beerbongs and Bentleys, making it the most streamed album of years in NZ.

The most streamlined female artist – both globally and in New Zealand – was the star of star Ariana Grande, who was on top of her slammed fourth album Sweetener and her latest single Thank you, Next Clock, over 3 billion streams this year. [19659002] She is on the list of most streamlined female performers of likes like Dua Lipa, Cardi B, Taylor Swift and Rihanna.

Kiwi’s favorite New Zealand artist was on the home market Six60, which featured the title of the most streamlined NZ artist, while Lorde took the best local female artist potty.

Also on the list were Kiwi favorites like Katchafire, Fat Freddys Drop and Sons of Zion.

One of the more interesting observations came from Spotify’s top lists by age group where the top track for almost all age groups was by Drake.

The exemptions were the 17 years and under which preferred XXXTentacion, 35-44 year-olds who preferred Ed Sheeran and 30-34 year olds, whose main two traces were Baby Sleep Shhh: The perfect sedimentation tool for babies and white shower for baby cots.
