As the decade draws to a close, streaming giant Spotify has announced the songs and artists that dominated the past 10 years.

Named artist of the year a record three times since 2010, it may not come as a surprise that Drake brought home the crown for the most-streamed artist of the decade. The hip-hop sensation garnered an impressive 28 billion streams from 2010 to 2019, with his most popular hit, “One Dance,” featuring Kyla and WizKid, played 1.7 billion times alone.

Completing the decade’s top five most-streamed artists among Spotify’s more than 100 million subscribers are Ed Sheeran, Post Malone, Ariana Grande and Eminem. The platform’s roundup saw “thank u, next” singer Ariana Grande lead the pack for the most-streamed female artist of the 2010s, followed by Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Sia and Beyoncé.

All ears seemed to be tuned into Sheeran who won the title for the most-streamed track of the decade with “Shape of You” raking in 2.4 billion streams.
