Rihanna is the world’s top streamed woman based on Spotify data analysis, according to The Hollywood Reporter. That’s a global statistic, but the numbers are different when analyzing the U.S. figures. Lana Del Rey, Beyonce and Katy Perry top that list. Still, there are other categories that were released to show how female artists are being streamed by the world.

The numbers shift, for example, when analyzing them by the gender of the listener. For instance, Beyonce is the all-time most streamed woman by all of the world’s women on Spotify. She’s followed by Katy Perry and Lana Del Rey with Rihanna and Ariana Grande rounding out the top five. However, Perry is actually the top streamed woman by men worldwide with Lana Del Rey, Lorde, Ariana Grande and Rihanna following. Those figures also change when analyzing just U.S. data.

It should be noted that Taylor Swift‘s decision to opt out of Spotify completely upon the release of her latest album might have skewed her numbers some. Despite this, Swift appeared on the list several times.

Take a look at the numbers below, via The Hollywood Reporter, to see how the number shift and sometimes stay the same when they’re analyzed using different rubrics.
