Spotify has announced the five most streamed songs, albums and artists of the year with Drake, Jay Z, Imagine Dragons, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis snagging top honors.

According to the music service's year-end report, Drizzy is the top artist of the year—surely fueled by fans eager to play and replay his latest No. 1 LP Nothing Was the Same. Jay Z landed at No. 2, followed by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Imagine Dragons and Kanye West.

While Drizzy may be the top-streamed artist overall, Imagine Dragons landed both the most streamed song and album.

The alt rockers' breakout hit "Radioactive" was the service's top song of 2013 with Macklemore and Lewis' "Thrift Shop" and "Can't Hold Us" snagging No. 2 and 3, respectively. Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" and Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" round out the Top 5.

Imagine Dragons' debut LP Night Visions topped the most-streamed album list, followed by Macklemore and Lewis' The Heist. The Lumineers' self-titled debut LP was No. 3, Bruno Mars' Unorthodox Jukebox No. 4 and Jay Z's Magna Carta...Holy Grail No. 5.

Congratulations are in order for the guys, but...where are the girls? Notably, no female acts landed in the Top 5 on any list—unless the Lumineers' sole female member, cellist/vocalist Neyla Pekarek, makes them eligible.
