Katy Perry Become the Most-Streamed Artists

Tuesday, December 9th, 2014

Since 2014 is coming to an end, the time has come to find out the most popular and the best in music.

Spotify has declared the winners for this year’s most-streamed artists. It has also revealed some staggering numbers. Spotify has reported that more than 50 million users had registered in this year to listen to music for about 7 billion hours. About 733 million playlists were created by the users. Therefore, the favorite songs, albums, and artists of users are also evident from the end-of-year information.

The British singer-songwriter, Ed Sheeran, has topped the “most-streamed artist” listing. He has managed to rack up 860 million listens. In June, the singer launched the sophomore album called X. The album included hit numbers like “Don’t” and “Sing”. It also became the most-streamed globally. X was listened to about 430 million times. This is very impressive because the album was launched only before 6 months. With these numbers, Sheeran has been crowned “most-streamed male artist” in 2014. The other men in the list, after Sheeran, include names like Eminem, David Guetta, Avicii, and Calvin Harris.

Katy Perry has been termed “most-streamed woman artist” globally. She has edged past Rihanna, who was honored with the title for the previous two years. In October 2013, Katy launched her album Prism, which includes hit singles like “Dark Horse”. Rihanna might have lost out to Perry because she hasn’t launched fresh music in over 2 years. Rihanna hasn’t been included in the top 5. The other notable women artists featuring in this list include Ariana Grande, Beyonce, Lordem, and Lana Del Ray.
