 Dua Lipa is the most-streamed female artiste in the UK so far this year, according to figures from both Spotify and Apple Music.

Her song One Kiss, with Calvin Harris, was the second most-streamed track on both sites, after Drake’s God’s Plan.

Lipa’s self-titled album was the third most-streamed record in the UK, and the fourth globally, on Spotify.

The star, who won best female at this year’s Brits, has just been announced as Vogue’s January cover star.

She is expected to pick up her first Grammy nominations when the 2019 shortlist is unveiled on Friday.

Apple and Spotify are the two biggest streaming services, with more than 139 million subscribers between them. Their “best of 2018” charts show the dominance of hip-hop, with Drake, Post Malone and late rapper XXXTentacion all clocking up multiple entries.

Drake was, unsurprisingly, the year’s most-streamed artist after his fifth album, Scorpion, shattered streaming records in June.

He clocked up 8.2 billion streams on Spotify alone - Apple does not release comparable data - while the single God’s Plan was the most-played song in the UK and worldwide.

In My Feelings, which sparked a hugely popular viral dance challenge, was in both Apple and Spotify’s Top 10 as well.

The Canadian star couldn’t compete with The Greatest Showman, whose soundtrack was the most-streamed album on Apple Music. By contrast, the cast recording failed to make Spotify’s Top 10 - although the breakout hit This Is Me by Kelela, was the most-streamed song amongst listeners aged 35-44.

Ed Sheeran, who was the biggest artist on streaming services last year, dropped to fifth place in 2018 - no mean feat, considering he didn’t release any new material.
