Dua Lipa named most-streamed female in the UK on Spotify and Apple Music

Apple Music and Spotify share their most played singles and albums of 2018.

Dua Lipa is the UK's most-streamed female artist in the UK so far in 2018 on Spotify and Apple Music. 

The singer's collaboration with Calvin Harris, One Kiss, was the UK's second most-streamed song of the year on both platforms behind God's Plan by Drake, while her self-titled debut was the third most played on Spotify and sixth on Apple Music. 

With downloads and streams across all platforms, One Kiss also ranks as the UK's second biggest song of 2018 so far, according to Official Charts Company data, and is currently very close behind the top song, God's Plan. Check out the UK's Official Top 40 biggest songs of 2018 so far.

On Spotify, Lipa finished ahead of Ariana Grande, Jess Glynne, Rihanna and Anne-Marie. However, the Top 5 most-streamed artists in the UK were men, led by Drake, Post Malone and Eminem. 

It's a similar story globally: Drake, Post Malone and XXXTentacion are the Top 3 most played artists worldwide, followed by J Balvin and Ed Sheeran.

The most streamed album on Spotify is Drake's chart-topping Scorpion, while on Apple Music, The Greatest Showman takes the crown. The cast recording spent 21 weeks at Number 1 on the Official Albums Chart this year and ranks as the UK's biggest overall when sales and streams are combined from all services. 

The UK's Official biggest singles and albums of 2018 will be revealed by OfficialCharts.com at the end of the year.
