Post Malone’s songs 'Rockstar' and 'Psycho' were in the top 5. His album Beerbongs & Bentleys was the second-most streamed followed by Cardi B’s, the late XXXTentacion and Travis Scott.

Spotify also announced on the same day that the rapper earned 8.2 billion streams in 2018. Drake is also Spotify’s most-streamed artist of all-time.
