Everyone and their mom uses Spotify these days. Accessible via smartphone, tablet or any other internet-capable device, the music streaming service is convenient, hip, cheap and vast — so it’s really no surprise to see everyone and their mom using it.

Rihanna (who exists essentially as a music genre of her own) unsurprisingly won the most streamed female artist, while David Guetta (who?) took the coveted prize for the males. His album ‘Nothing but the Beat’ was the biggest album, while Coldplay was the most streamed band of the year.
