Drake has surpassed 6 billion streams in one year for a second straight year as rap music continues to dominate mainstream music.

For the second year in a row Drake was the most streamed artist on the planet across all genre, and for the second straight year, he hit the 6 billion milestone. Drizzy is currently the only artist in the world to ever surpassed 6 billion streams in one year and he did it twice already, Variety reported. The only other artist who got close to the Toronto rapper’s numbers is Future who racked up 4.2 billion streams last year, a clear sign that hip hop world dominance is showing no signs of slowing down.

Music streaming has been seeing a massive growth with twice as many streams on any given day last year, 1.67 billion stream per day, when compares to 2016 which was averaging around 560 million daily streams. Streaming services like Apple Music and Spotify continues to see massive growth in the number of paid subscribers as fans move away from buying and downloading songs to just streaming them via their smartphones and other compatible devices.

There is still a bit of a fuzzy area when it comes to the reporting on Drake’s streaming numbers since Spotify announced last month that Ed Sheeran racked up 6.3 billion streams on the platform last year. We also know that Sheeran had the most streamed album with his LP Divide picking up 2,645,600 equivalent units. Not surprisingly, Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito” was the most streamed song of the year with over 1 billion streams with Ed Sheeran’s “Shape Of You” being the second most streamed song when it picked up 979.3 million listens.

Last month, Apple Music reported that Drake’s playlist, More Life, was the most streamed album in 2017 on their platform, followed by Ed Sheeran’s Divide.

We also take a look at the makeup of Hip-Hop/R&B songs on the streaming charts and found out that 50% of the top 1,000 most streamed songs of the year was in the urban category. Hip-Hop/Rap made up 20.9% of the total streams last year making it the most listened to genre.

In December we got a new single from Dej Loaf titled “Big Ole Boss” and now she is hinting that her long-awaited album, Liberated, is ready.

The last solo body of work we received from Dej Loaf was her 2016 mixtape All Jokes Aside. Last year, she released a joint mixtape with Jacquees, F**k A Friend Zone. Though she has released at least four mixtapes and an EP since 2012, we’ve yet to get her long-awaited debut album. Last year she announced that she is working on a new project called Liberated but so far there have been no further details.

On Monday, Dej Loaf posted a preview of a new song on Instagram where she drops some hints about her upcoming album. “Express yourself it’s been building up gradually who ready for the album?” she wrote. In a recent interview with Paper magazine, she opened up about the pressure she has been feeling to deliver her best work yet.

“I think it’s been a year and a half since people have seen me,” she said. “I took that time off and I was working. You don’t know how they’re going to react. It’s definitely pressure, though. I just want to be who they saw me as, but also have them understand my growth in the music. That’s what I focused on this go-round.”

Listen to a preview of her new music below.

express yourself it’s been building up gradually ???? who ready for the album?

Na papiru možda tuđi
a u duši moj si samo
da zauvek tako biće
to oboje dobro znamo
da zauvek tako biće
to oboje dobro znamo

[Refren] x2
Iako si meni bivši
moja ljubav zabranjena
jedini u srcu ti si
ostao za sva vremena

To ne može više tako
duša ovde telo tamo
da pripadaš samo meni
to oboje dobro znamo
da pripadaš samo meni
to oboje dobro znamo

jedini u srcu ti si

Na mojim rukama
bez broj si puta zaspao
na mojim grudima
najlijepse snove sanjao

Budna sam nocima
u tvoje lice gledala
i Boga slavila
sto sam ti usne ljubila

Nisam sama u zivotu
a ni s onim skim bih htijela
kod njega je moje tijelo
a kod tebe dusa cijela

U tvojim ocima
jednom je sjaja nestalo
samo si otis’o
nista mi nisi rekao

Sa drugom zenom
trazio zivot svijetliji
sve si pokvario
a nista nisi sretniji
(2x)

[Ref.] x2
Nisam sama u zivotu
a ni s onim skim bih htijela
kod njega je moje tijelo
a kod tebe dusa cijela
