Taylor Swift continues to dominate the musical landscape, having been named the most streamed artist on Spotify this year.
The 33-year-old US singer secured the coveted spot by garnering more than 26.1 billion global streams since the beginning of the year, according to the music platform.
Swift was also the most streamed artist on the UK chart, followed by Canadian stars Drake and The Weeknd, with Sheffield-based Arctic Monkeys coming in fourth and Yorkshire-born Ed Sheeran placing fifth.
Swift’s 2022 release, “Midnights,” which reached number one on both sides of the Atlantic, was the most streamed album in the UK for 2023.
Her 2019 album “Lover” also placed at number five on the list, behind SZA’s second studio album “SOS,” Harry Styles’ third release, titled “Harry’s House,” and Arctic Monkeys’ 2013 album “AM.”
Midnights came second globally, missing out on the title to Un Verano Sin Ti by Puerto Rican rapper Bad Bunny, which secured the top spot as it has received more than 4.5 billion global streams since January 1.
SZA took the third spot with SOS and rounding out the list in the fourth and fifth spots were Starboy by The Weeknd and Manana Sera Bonito by Karol.
Swift’s Spotify success comes after an amazing year which saw her sell out stadiums across the Americas, win a host of awards and dominate the charts with the re-release of her albums Speak Now and 1989, this time as Taylor’s Version.
