Spotify has just released their 2017 list of the most streamed artists and it looks like Drake has finally been dethroned by pop singer Ed Sheeran.

Since holding the title for two years in a row, Drizzy now comes in a close second with losing to Sheeran’s more than 6.3 billion streams. The Weeknd and Kendrick Lamar also round out the Top 5 list of most streamed artist.
