British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran is the year's most streamed artist on Spotify, while Eminem tops the list in the United States.
Spotify announced its top streaming artists, albums and songs of 2014 on Wednesday. Pharrell's ubiquitous "Happy" was the most streamed song of the year globally.
Sheeran racked up more than 860 million listens on Spotify. His latest album, X, is the most steamed album worldwide with 430 million streams. His Spotify success mirrors his huge box-office clout. The artist will open the U.K. leg of his 2015 world tour with three shows at London's legendary Wembley Stadium. On his tour of Australia a few months later, he'll become the first musician in 20 years to undertake a national headline arena tour completely solo.
