Toronto-born rapper Drake continues to represent Canada well! He has been declared the top-selling musical artist of 2016. As BBC News reports, he racked up a bigger combined total of streams, physical and digital sales and downloads than any other act last year, according to the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry, which accounts for all music by a particular artist rather than a single song or album.
The artist who landed in the #2 spot is the late David Bowie, whose death in January 2016 led to a flurry of downloading his extensive music catalogue. The rest of the top 10 is comprised of Coldplay at third place, Adele at fourth and Justin Bieber at #5, followed by Twenty One Pilots (#6), Beyonce (#7), Rihanna (#8), Prince (#9) and The Weeknd (#10).
