Drake deal with Apple doesn't stop him from being a beast on Spotify.

For the second year in a row, Drizzy was the most spun artist on the world's most popular streaming service.

Drake got 4.7 billion Spotify streams in 2016, topping the 1.8 billion he lead with in 2016.

His track 'One Dance' was the most streamed of the year with 970 million plays, and his album Views was the most spun with 2.45 billion.

“Drake has been unstoppable this year – he’s a true global superstar,” said Stefan Blom, Spotify’s Chief Content & Chief Strategy Officer. ”With the top album and the top song this year, as well as his successful Summer Sixteen tour, Drake continues to engage his fans in a way that only Drake can; it’s no surprise he is dominating the music industry.”
