There’s no doubt that Spotify is the industry leader in streaming services. Though Apple Music, Amazon, and SoundCloud make up significant portions of the streaming landscape, no other service is looked to as intensely as Spotify for industry metrics and strength.
As such, being listed on the service’s most streamed artists of all time is no small feat. Of course many of the artists on the list belong to pop and hip hop, showing the strength of those genres in the current climate, but some rock (albeit soft rock) makes it on.
Below, Chart Data lists the most streamed artists of all time on Spotify (by lead artists credit):
- Ed Sheeran
- Ariana Grande
- Post Malone
- Justin Bieber
- The Weeknd
- Imagine Dragons
