On Tuesday (Dec. 1), Spotify released its list of the artists and songs that dominated the streaming platform in 2015. And with no Taylor Swift or Adele getting in his way, Drake was named the most-streamed artist of 2015.

With two big releases in 2015—If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late and the Future collaboration What a Time To Be Alive—Drizzy earned 1.8 billion streams this year and 46 million listeners. He topples Ed Sheeran, last year’s most-streamed artist on Spotify, for the 2015 crown.

Rihanna is the queen to Drake’s king, with 1 billion streams and even more listeners than Drizzy (57 million), despite not releasing an album (yet?) in 2015.
