Spotify rolled out its year-end data for the world's and each country's most-streamed songs and artists. Topping the global and Philippine charts is "the biggest male pop star in the world", Ed Sheeran. The singer-songwriter had to postpone his Manila concert til 2018, so fans must've resorted to streaming his latest album, Divide on loop. (Here's what went down during the first show of his Asian tour.)
From Filipino pop star Sarah Geronimo to global pop icon Taylor Swift, here are the tracks and artists that made it to the year-end playlists.
