According to the streaming service, the "Wild Thoughts" singer is the most streamed female artist for the third year in a row.

The "Castle on the Hill" star topped the list of artists on the streaming service, thanks to the release of "Divide".

Divide's single "Shape of You", has also become the most streamed track of all time on Spotify with over 1.4 billion streams.

Sheeran, who will perform six times in New Zealand next year, has already been named Spotify's most-streamed artist.

Sheeran surpassed Drake, Spotify's most-streamed artist of 2015 and 2016. "Congratulations to Ed on an wonderful achievement", said Spotify chief content officer Stefan Blom in a statement.

Following the British crooner in the global top five was Drake, The Weeknd, Kendrick Lamar and The Chainsmokers.

Taylor Swift made an impressive leap to third spot on the year's charts just a few weeks after the release of her sixth album, reputation.

Ed's "Castle on the Hill" and "Galway Girl" also made the top five most streamed tracks in the United Kingdom as well as Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber's "Despacito" and French Montana's "Unforgettable".

"The most popular group was" Coldplay, with Linkin Park not far behind, no doubt affected by the heartbreaking loss of their lead singer, Chester Bennington. That's pretty unbelievable for an artist who didn't release an album this year!

This year Spotify has also launched a personalised 2017 Wrapped feature to compare your individual taste with that of the nation.
