Spotify has released its end-of-year statistics, and Drake reigns supreme, topping 1.8 billion streams in 2015. Rihanna took the top spot for a female artist, clocking in at 1 billion streams.

The biggest hit of the year was Major Lazer’s “Lean On” featuring breakout Danish pop star Mø. It racked up 540 million streams and became the most-streamed song of all time.

One notable absence was Adele, who has refused to put her new album “25”on Spotify. Even so, her single “Hello” is on Spotify, but it didn’t rank on Spotify, likely due to its late release in the year.

Here is the full data from Spotify, including top artists, tracks, albums, and more.
