It's no surprise, but the rapper is the king of Spotify.

Drake is Spotify's most-streamed artist of the year globally.

Spotify on Tuesday announced that the rapper earned 8.2 billion streams in 2018. He also has the year's most-streamed album and song with Scorpion and "God's Plan."

Drake is also Spotify's most-streamed artist ever.

Following Drake on the 2018 list of top artists are Post Malone, XXXTentacion, J Balvin and Ed Sheeran, who was Spotify's most-streamed artist last year.

No women made the top five, but Ariana Grande ranks first among female artists globally on Spotify. She is followed by Dua Lipa, Cardi B, Taylor Swift and Camila Cabello.

Drake not only has the year's top song, his hit "In My Feelings" came in fifth on the list. "Sad!" by XXXTentacion, who died in June, came in second, while Malone has the third and fourth most-streamed songs with "Rockstar" and "Psycho."

Malone's Beerbongs & Bentleys is the second most-streamed album behind Drake's Scorpion. XXXTentacion's ?, Lipa's self-titled album and Sheeran's ÷ round out the top five.
