Six60 reign as most-streamed local artist on Spotify

This year's top five most-streamed artists also feature Post Malone, XXXTentacion, J Balvin and last year's most-streamed artist Ed Sheeran. The most streamed artist is Drake, thanks to his Scorpion album, followed by Post Malone, and late rapper XXXTentacion.

Despite having the most-streamed album of the year, Drake didn't actually win Apple's Album of the Year honors.

Twenty-three-year-old Post Malone had two tracks in the Top five, with Rockstar and Psycho at No 3 and No 4, with his album Beerbongs & Bentleys reaching No 2 in the album list.

The three artists were also among the five most-streamed artists in the United Kingdom, with God's Plan again the most streamed track.

Drake not only has the year's top song, his hit In My Feelings came in fifth on the Spotify list.

In a separate category, most-streamed female artists has Ariana Grande at the top, followed by Dua Lipa, Cardi B, Taylor Swift and Camila Cabello.

Dua Lipa is the UK's most-streamed female artist in the United Kingdom so far in 2018 on Spotify and Apple Music.

In October, Drake nabbed the lucrative title of being the top-streamed artist of all time in a list the music streaming service revealed to celebrate its 10th anniversary. Drake and Spotify were both criticised around the release of his album Scorpion for an "artist takeover" which saw his face and music plastered across 30 of the platform's major playlists. Drake was also chosen as Apple Music's artist of the year as well. An analysis reported on by the New York Times looked at the top 600 songs from 2012 to 2017, and found that of 1,239 performing artists, 22.4 percent were women.
