Honoring International Women’s Day, Apple Music has shared the top 20 women in streaming from its platform.

Rihanna holds down the number one position atop a list of impressive female artists. Taylor Swift lands herself in second place, right above the Queen Beyoncé. A remarkable feat for all three women in the top since during their careers they have each excluded their music from being featured on the platform.
