Sheeran had the most-streamed track of the decade, "Shape of You."The Weeknd didn't make the top list but landed fifth under most-streamed male artists".
Fellow streaming giant YouTube has not published its top streamed videos of the decade - its top-viewed video remains the lilting Latin juggernaut "Despacito" by Luis Fonsi featuring Daddy Yankee, with over 6.5 billion.
Newcomer Billie Eilish also made a serious impact on the list.
If you're wondering why we're telling you this, it's because Billie Eilish (Real name Billie O'Connell) has Irish roots.
Remember 2010? Ariana Grande was that girl on Victorious and Drake was that guy from Degrassi.
He was followed by British pop singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran, genre-blending USA rapper-singer Post Malone and American pop performer Ariana Grande.
Eilish's album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go was the most streamed album of the year.
Ariana Grande's Thank U, Next was the third most-streamed album followed by Sheeran's No. 6 Collaborations Project and Shawn Mendes' self-titled album. Of the decade's female artists, Grande was followed by Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Sia, and Beyoncé. Spotify's most-streamed podcasts are The Joe Budden Podcast, My Favorite Murder, Gemischtes Hack, Fest & Flauschig, and The Misfits Podcast.
In the United Kingdom, however, Eilish played second fiddle to Lewis Capaldi whose debut album, Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent, topped the chart.
