It has become a staple of every smartphone. Since its inception, the Shazam app has grown steadily. Recently, it can even now boast of having exceeded the symbolic threshold of 200 million monthly active users in the world. On this occasion, a ranking of the 100 most viewed music since the creation of the application has just been unveiled.
We find in first position the hit “Dance Monkey” by Tones and I, however released in May 2019. The track has accumulated more than 36.6 million shazams, and takes first place on the podium. It must be said that Shazam has become a powerful application, which indicates trends in music consumption and can show which artists are the most discovered by listeners – and by definition those who intrigue audiences the most with their music alone.
“Shazam was a huge stepping stone for me to make myself known. No one had heard of me when I released ‘Dance Monkey’. It gave me the opportunity to reach more people and expand my fanbase, which allowed me to build a career. Shazam is clearly an application designed to help little-known artists “, explains the singer Tones and I in a press release.
“Prayer in C” by Lilly Wood & The Prick remixed by Robin Schulz and “Let Her Go” by Passenger completed the podium. Recent headlines which prove that the use of Shazam continues to grow. In the top 10, we also find notable hits from recent years such as “Wake Me Up” by the late Avicii, “Lean On” by Major Lazer, MØ and DJ Snake, “Somebody That I Used to Know” by Gotye or even “Take Me to Church” by Hozier, who rub shoulders with superstars such as Ed Sheeran, Sia and Kungs.
