Ed Sheeran: Spotify’s Most-Streamed Act

British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran is the year’s most streamed artist on Spotify, while Eminem tops the list in the United States. Spotify announced its top streaming artists, albums and songs of 2014 on Wednesday. Pharrell Williams’ ubiquitous “Happy” was the most streamed song of the year globally. Katy Perry and Coldplay were the most streamed female and group around the world, respectively, in 2014. In the United States, Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” was the most streamed song of the year. Her album, “The New Classic,” was the second most streamed album in America behind Sheeran’s “X.” This year, Spotify experienced a shake-up when Taylor Swift decided to remove all of her music from the streaming service in late October. But she wasn’t on pace for the top spot even if she’d stayed.
