Although Drake has a lucrative deal with Apple Music, he's still getting love on Spotify... as the service announces he's the most-streamed artist for the second year in a row.

In 2016, the rap star garnered more than 4.7 billion streams, far surpassing his 1.8 billion from last year.

Drake's smash single, "One Dance", was also named the most-streamed song of all time with 970 million plays, while Views was the year’s most-streamed album.

"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."
