Find out your most streamed artists and tracks of the year

We're headed towards Christmas, which means that it is time for Spotify to reveal their annual music trend stats, determining the best performing artists and tracks of the year.

It is no surprise that Drake tops the Wrapped list, becoming the most streamed artist of 2018, globally. With 8.2 billion streams this year alone, he has also become the most-streamed artist of all time. Ariana Grande has picked up the award for the most-streamed female artist, generating more than 220 million streams on her latest hit "thank u, next".

Whilst Hip-hop was the most listened genre in 2018, Latin music continued to enjoy a rise, with J Balvin, Ozuna and Bad Bunny all claiming a top 10 spot on the most listened list.
