In a domain devoid of industry titans such as Taylor Swift and Adele, the Canadian rapper has just been named Spotify’s most-streamed artist of 2015, with more than 1.8 billion spins -- followed closely behind by Ed Sheeran, The Weeknd, Maroon 5 and Kanye West. The list is conspicuously lacking any female musicians, though this is likely due to the fact that Swift and Adele yanked their most recent releases from Spotify -- which counts 20 million paying subscribers and 75 million users of the ad-supported version of the service -- in a bid to drive up physical album sales. The year’s most-streamed female artist is Rihanna, who tapped out at just over 1 billion streams -- a notable accomplishment since she didn’t release a new album this year. While Swift has said in the past that she objects to free streaming, Adele has remained mum on why she chose to remove 25, her new album, from Spotify.
