Although a month technically remains in the decade, Spotify has already published its retrospective list of the biggest artists and records.

Ed Sheeran, who clocks in as the 2010-2019 decade’s #2 artist (after Drake), is responsible for two of the top five songs.

His “Shape Of You” ranks as the decade’s most-streamed song on Spotify, while “Thinking Out Loud” registers at #5.

Drake’s “One Dance (featuring WizKid & Kyla)” grabs the runner-up spot, ahead of Post Malone’s “Rockstar (featuring 21 Savage)” (#3) and The Chainsmokers’ “Closer (featuring Halsey)” (#4).
