If you had any lingering doubts about the internet's deep, pure love for Drake, throw them away. The politest guy in hip hop has just become the first artist to rack up one billion Spotify streams on a single track. That's billion, with a B. The banger to end all bangers? One Dance of course. We already knew it was the platform's most listened to song of 2016, and that Drake was named the most streamed artist of the year. For the record, he also took out that title in 2015, so it seems we just can't get enough.

Overall he has collected 4.7 billion Spotify streams since the beginning of the year — not bad considering Views started life as an Apple Music exclusive. We're not sure what you give someone for their one billionth anniversary, a note from Sade perhaps?
