Hits Daily Double Releases Top 30 Most Streaming Artists of 2016 (So Far)


Hits Daily Double reports: Our numbers crunchers have tabulated rankings of the most-streamed artists of the first five months of 2016, led by Drake, the Godzilla of streaming, who’s racked up a mind-boggling 1.44 billion streams year-to-date. The chart reveals that UMG is dominating streaming at this stage much as it has dominated traditional marketshare in recent years, even as Sony Music rides a hot streak in singles sales and airplay; at presstime, seven of the Top 10 songs at iTunes were from Sony acts. A second chart lists the top labels in streaming marketshare, which finds Monte Lipman’s Republic (#2 in TEA and frontline share) forging ahead of the field, with Rob Stringer’s Columbia, the marketshare leader in TEA and frontline, its closest rival. The streaming shares of Island, Cash Money and Big Machinefeed into Republic’s streaming marketshare, while Columbia gets RED’s share.
