Rihanna Most Streamed Female Artist on Spotify, Beyonce Most Popular With Women

With International Women’s Day less than 24 hours away, Spotify has compiled a list of the most-streamed female artists on the music site.

Rihanna reigns supreme as the favorite female artist among all Spotify listeners worldwide. The most-streamed woman (for the third year in a row) had a smash hit with her Eminem collaboration, “The Monster,” last year. The song has been streamed over 200 million times on Spotify. Katy Perry, Beyoncé, Lana Del Rey and Lady Gaga were next up on the list.

With feminist anthems like “Run the World (Girls)” and “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It),” and new tracks “Flawless” and “Pretty Hurts,” it’s no surprise that Beyonce is the female artist most women in the world listen to on Spotify.

Perry, Del Rey and Rihanna all make second appearances, with Ariana Grande rounding out the top five.

Although she pulled all of her songs from the streaming service late last year, Taylor Swift still appears on both roundups.

Here are the full lists:
