Drake Is the Most-Streamed Artist On Spotify's Top 100

FUSE TV - Drake Is the Most-Streamed Artist On Spotify's Top 100

Although a pre-Spotify music-listening world now seems like a distant, nightmarish memory to me, it's a fact that the music-streaming service has only been available in the U.S. since July 2011. So to commemorate its one-year relationship with American ears, Spotify released its 100 Most-Listened To Songs.

Predictably, Gotye's ubiquitous hit "Somebody That I Used to Know" is firmly entrenched atop the list, while fun.'s "We Are Young" is unsurprisingly the second most-listened to track in the last year.

One particularly interesting thing about this list, however, is the dominating presence of Canadian rapper/Degrassi veteran Drake. Drizzy appears on 11 of the 100 most-streamed songs on Spotify, meaning that more than one-tenth of the most popular songs online this last year featured the Young Money all-star.

Cash Money rappers overall represent impressively on this list: Lil Wayne has the second-most appearances on this Top 100 (he pops up nine times) and Nicki Minaj has five appearances to her (and Roman's) name. Frequent YMCMB collaborator Rihanna also has five appearances on the list.

Most of the list mirrors the major pop charts hits of the last year (check out the ten most-listened to songs below), but surprisingly, hitmakers Katy Perry and Adele only appear one time apiece on the 100 Most-Listened to Songs on Spotify, even though both released three singles in the last year.

In the indie world, Foster the People shuffle into the spotlight with five songs on this list, one of which was the third most listened-to song of the last 12 months (Hint: it's exactly the one you think it is). 

Top 10 Most-Listened to Spotify Tracks In U.S.

1. Gotye ft. Kimbra, "Somebody That I Used To Know"
2. fun. ft. Janelle Monae, "We Are Young"
3. Foster The People, "Pumped Up Kicks"
4. Carly Rae Jepsen, "Call Me Maybe"
5. Rihanna, "We Found Love"
6. Jay-Z & Kanye West, "Ni***s In Paris"
7. Drake ft. Rihanna, "Take Care"
8. Adele, "Rolling In The Deep"
9. Flo Rida ft. Sia, "Wild Ones"
10. The Wanted, "Glad You Came"

If you're interested in listening to some stuff on Spotify that's a little more off the beaten trail, check out Fuse's Spotify app: We put out thematically curated playlists every day. Not that we don't love "Call Me Maybe" and Gotye, but every now and then it's nice to find some new jams.
