Maybe it was God's Plan all along.

Canadian rapper and musician, Aubrey Drake Graham, known popularly as just the mono-name 'Drake,' is multitalented. He's a rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer, actor, and businessman. And he's also Spotify's most streamed Artist of the decade.

Irrespective of how much hate Drake gets on twitter, turns out he was on everyone's playlist all alone. Drake's music was streamed more than 28 billion times, in the last 10 years.

Created in 2006, Spotify by 2010 was but a young start-up with less than a million paying subscribers -- contrary to today's 113 million. Drake, however, still manages to be on the top.

As the year comes to an end, everyone is sharing their Spotify Wraped on their social media handles - and surprisingly, however hidden and discreet you've kept it, Drake seemed to be on a lot of people's lists.

Drake's 'Hotline bling' became somewhat of an icon when it released, but the Internet has always held a strange position for Drake - never appreciating his actions, but always secretly appreciating his music.

So, while you may not be ready to admit it, Drake has probably been your playlist - a lot more than you'd thought.
