(CNN)Spotify has revealed its most-streamed artists of the decade, with Drake claiming the top spot.

He was followed by British pop singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran, genre-blending USA rapper-singer Post Malone and American pop performer Ariana Grande.

And Post Malone is the most streamed artist this year, with over 6.5 billion streams from fans around the globe in 2019.

Drizzy has more than 28 billion streams to his name on the audio service.

From December 6, subscribers will be able to review their listening habits, including how many minutes of music they racked up during the year and their top artists, songs and genres.

Close on his heels was American teen sensation Billie Eilish, who last month was one of the top nominees for the upcoming Grammy Awards.

Of course, Rihanna is no stranger to wearing cornrows - whether she's on the red carpet or spending time with family. They have been spotted kissing and some think they are a couple, but just keep it on the down-low.


Eilish's debut album, When We All Fall Asleep Where Do We Go, was also the year's most popular album - the first time a female artist has topped Spotify's end-of-year survey.

Canadian singer-songwriter Shawn Mendes, originally from Pickering, Ont., earned major recognition for Senorita, his duet with Camila Cabello.

His ubiquitous ballad Someone You Loved was also the year's most-streamed song.

Spotify's most-streamed podcasts are The Joe Budden Podcast, My Favorite Murder, Gemischtes Hack, Fest & Flauschig, and The Misfits Podcast.

Grande, Sheeran and Latin trap innovator Bad Bunny formed the rest of the most-streamed class of artists of 2019.
