I have figured out who the #1 ranked artist is. I thought of who I knew to be popular and got lucky. If Spotify is going to have rankings, then they should make them more accessible. Currently, the most popular artists in the world is Ed Sheeran. I know that this isn't very helpful, but it's what I could do for now. If I figure out where they keep the list, then I shall come back and tell you.
