Posted at December 2nd, 2015 | by Supreet.cheema | in

December is here and its the perfect time to look back at the artists as well as songs for which 2015 was kickass. Spotify has just released its Year in Music series which looks back at the best in music from the last 12 months and the results are not so surprising. Drake was crowned as the Most Streamed Artist in the world on Spotify in 2015 with around 1.8 billion total streams. Ed Sheeran, the Weeknd, Maroon 5 and Kanye West occupy the rest of the all-male global artists’ top 5.

Rihanna was named as the most-streamed Female Artist of the year. Though she hasn’t  released a full-length album since 2013, she managed over a billion streams on the strength of a handful of new singles (including “Bitch Better Have My Money”) . Justin Bieber set a record for the most streams in a single day with 36 million streams on Nov 13th. Also, the most streamed song of 2015 title was given to Major Lazer’s “Lean On,” featuring MØ and DJ Snake. With 540 million listens, it has surely established itself as the most streamed song of all time.
