Justin Bieber is presently the most-streamed artist on Spotify but as far as hip-hop goes, a new leader in monthly listeners has just been revealed.
Following the release of Certified Lover Boy, Drake comfortably had the most monthly listeners among rappers on Spotify, but he has officially been dethroned by Doja Cat, who replaces him at the top by a short margin.

As it stands, Doja Cat currently has 63.6 million monthly listeners on Spotify, with many songs from her Planet Her album reaching the 100-million stream point. Some records, like “Kiss Me More” with SZA, are on pace to eventually surpass one billion streams. In comparison, Drake currently has 63.3 million monthly listeners. Much like Doja Cat, a few of Drake’s latest songs have already surpassed the 100-million stream mark, including “Fair Trade,” “Girls Want Girls,” “Way 2 Sexy,” and “Knife Talk.”

This speaks to Doja Cat’s tremendous rise to superstardom in the last few years, as she continues to drop off records that some fans would be quick to call classics.
She may lean over to the pop side, but this is something that Doja warned us about for months. She tweeted in May, saying, “DONT EVER FUCKIN DISRESPECT ME AS A RAPPER. AFTER THE LAST SONG I DROPPED YOU WILL RESPECT MY PEN AND THATS FUCKIN THAT.”
Now, she’s the most streamed rapper on Spotify. Congratulations to Doja Cat.
