Apple has released its Best of 2018 list, a look back at the music, movies, TV series, books, podcasts and other forms of entertainment that captured our eyes and ears over the past year.

In the music category, there’s no denying the power of Drake during 2018, with the Toronto rapper boasting three songs in the Canadian top 10 — actually, four if you account for his featured appearance on BlocBoy JB’s “Look Alive”. As if that’s not enough of an accolade, Drake is also Apple Music’s Artist of the Year.

When it comes to movies and TV, “Incredibles 2” and “Killing Eve” top their respective categories with Canadian viewers — and despite being released late in the year, the Lady Gaga-Bradley Cooper remake of “A Star is Born” still managed to land in the top 10 within the film category.

Here are some highlights from Apple’s Best of 2018:
