Spotify breaks down the most popular music of the year on their service, and Pharell, Eminem, Iggy Azalea, Ariana Grande and Beyoncé are among those included.

By now, it's no secret that streaming giant Spotify has eclipsed nearly every other comparable service in its field, so its new list of the "top" (or most popular) music of the year is probably one of the best gauges of America's listening habits that we have. Including categories for male and female artists, albums and songs, the list includes several artists from the hip-hop/R&B world (alright, mostly the R&B one).
