Kiwi band Six60 is up there with the likes of Drake, Rihanna and Justin Bieber as one of New Zealand's most streamed artists of the year.

The 'White Lines' hitmakers' self-titled record has made it into the top five most streamed albums of the year on Spotify, just shaded out by pop rock band Twenty One Pilots.

Canadian rapper Drake has come out on top as the artist listened to most by Kiwis - according to data just released by the digital music service - dethroning Ed Sheeran, who topped the list in 2015.

Spotify users in New Zealand share similar tastes with the rest of the world, as the 'Hotline Bling' hitmaker topped the international chart also.
