Spotify’s “Year In Review” list was compiled by “the listening habits” of the digital music site’s 24-million international users. This year, the people have spoken, and heralded Macklemore and Ryan Lewis as the most streamed artist around the globe. The Seattle natives finished the year off strong, having won multiple awards and conducting a successful tour to now grasping the number one position for most streamed song “Can’t Hold Us.”

Their debut track, “Thrift Shop,” came in at number three on the same list while their platinum project The Heist was named as the top album streamed worldwide.
