Shazam has named the top 100 songs that users have identified through the app, with ‘Dance Monkey’ by Tones And I taking out the top spot.
Since its release in May 2020, the viral hit has been Shazamed over 36.6 million times.
“I didn’t have a following when I released ‘Dance Monkey’, but [Shazam] gave me the opportunity to reach more people and elevate my fanbase, which has all led to creating a career for myself,” the Australian pop artist said in a press statement, as Variety reported.
Robin Schulz’s remix of ‘Prayer In C’ by Lilly Wood and The Prick and ‘Let Her Go’ by Passenger rounded out the top three. Every song which made the list was released in the last ten years.
Ed Sheeran and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are the only artists with multiple entries in the list’s top twenty. Sheeran’s tracks ‘Thinking Out Loud’, ‘Shape Of You’ and ‘Perfect’ all made the list, as did ‘Thrift Shop’ and ‘Can’t Hold Us’ by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.
Launched as a smartphone app in 2008, Shazam is used by over 200million people each month and is owned by Apple Music.
