Sheeran tops Spotify's most-streamed list

Apple released its annual list of the most popular music in Australia for 2017 on Thursday and revealed that Sheeran's multi-platinum third record / (Divide) which he released in March, is its most listened-to album.

Hip-hop star Drake came in second on Spotify in 2017 and rapper Kendrick Lamar was fourth, with R&B singer The Weeknd, a protege of Drake, placing third.

I feel very protective of her and my goal is to empower her in whatever choices she makes. One person wrote , "I've enjoyed the Sia-Maddie Ziegler combo".

His success on Spotify, however, did not help him at the Grammys, with Sheeran shut out of major categories announced last week - a surprise to many watchers of the music industry's top prizes.

Meanwhile, Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's "Despacito" - one of the handful of songs that legitimately shook foundations throughout 2017 - ended up as the No. 3 most-streamed song, finishing just behind its own remix featuring Justin Bieber.

Rihanna finished as the top-streamed female artist, followed by Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande and Sia. That's pretty unbelievable for an artist who didn't release an album this year!
