Over the past decade, hip hop has continued to evolve and grow in popularity, becoming one of the biggest pop culture forces in the world.

From its humble beginnings in the 1970s where MCs and DJs would play beats and kick rhymes in park jams, the culture has transformed into the dominant music genre. Today, rap music is the biggest and most influential music genre, with some of the biggest hits over the past decade coming from or being inspired from the world of hip hop.

From Drake’s “One Dance” to Juice WRLD’s “Lucid Dreams” and XXXTentacion’s “Sad!,” here are the top 20 most streamed hip hop songs of all time.

Drake ft. Wizkid and Kyla – “One Dance”

Most Streamed Hip Hop Songs Of All Time Drake One Dance

Released: April 5, 2016

Label: Young Money, Cash Money, Republic

Album: Views

Streams: 2.9 billion

“One Dance” did what “Hotline Bling” (released a year earlier) couldn’t do – it became Drake’s first number one single as a lead artist. Not only that, the single became a runaway global smash, topping the charts in 15 countries, including Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands, New Zealand and Switzerland. Following Rihanna’s “Work,” which dropped the same year, “One Dance” capitalised on the peak of the dancehall craze of 2016 and has since become of the most streamed hip hop song of all time.

Juice WRLD – “Lucid Dreams”

100 Most Streamed Hip Hop Albums Of All Time Juice Wrld

Released: May 4, 2018

Label: Grade A, Interscope

Album: Goodbye & Good Riddance

Streams: 2.4 billion

Taking a sample of Sting’s “Shape of My Heart,” also used notably in Nas’ “The Message,” Juice Wrld’s “Lucid Dreams” turned the budding SoundCloud rapper into a global superstar. Even with Sting owning 85% of the song’s rights, the tradeoff was worth it because Juice quickly became one of the biggest rappers in the game off the strength of it.

Drake – “God’s Plan”

Every Single Hip Hop Billboard Number One Album Since 1986 Scorpion

Released: January 19, 2018

Label: Young Money, Cash Money, Republic

Album: Scorpion

Streams: 2.4 billion

From a music standpoint, there’s nothing too special about “God’s Plan.” In fact, I’d go so far as to say it’s one of Drake’s most generic songs that does nothing but pander to the mainstream. But the Toronto superstar understands the social media game better than almost anyone else, so when the music video for “God’s Plan” went viral and the song quickly became one of his biggest ever, it was like he had it planned all along.

XXXTentacion – “Sad!”

Every Single Hip Hop Billboard Number One Album Since 1986 Xxx

Released: March 2, 2018

Label: Bad Vibes Forever, Caroline

Album: “?”

Streams: 2.1 billion

Released a few months before XXXTentacion’s untimely death, “Sad!” captured the troubled Florida artist at his best artistically. A masterpiece of the emo hip hop aesthetic, the production and melodies that XXXTentacion rides on this track do a great job of showcasing his depth of talent. Following his murder on June 18, 2018 at the young age of 20, the track jumped up to number one on the Billboard Hot 100, making him the first lead artist to earn a chart-topping single since The Notorious B.I.G.’s “Mo Money Mo Problems” in 1997.

Released at the peak of Kendrick Lamar’s superstardom, and just after Travis Scott became a household name thanks to Rodeo , there was no way “goosebumps” wouldn’t become a hit single. Even though the track only performed moderately on the charts (it peaked at 32 on the Billboard Hot 100), it has since become a fan favourite and streamed close to 2 billion times.

Dedicated to Jocelyn Amparo Flores, a 16-year-old native of The Bronx, who tragically passed away in 2017, “Jocelyn Flores” is one of XXXTentacion’s most iconic songs. Produced by Potsu, known for his dreamy, atmospheric instrumentals, the song is built around a sample of “I’m Closing My Eyes,” it’s a poignant track that deals with themes of loss grief.
