Mobile phone application,
Shazam, which has over billions of download, has revealed the most Shazamed
(it’s officially a word now) tracks of 2016!

For those of you who are
still in dark over this, Shazam is a music identifying app that lets you record
any music that is playing and let you know the title and the name of the song.

In a year where music was
more mumbling than words with songs like “Panda” by Desiigner, Rihanna’s “Work”,
Grammy nominated “Broccoli” and the ever golden “PPAP” by Pikotaro ruling our
airwaves, it makes perfect sense on why we need apps like Shazam.


The diverse list of songs
contains some explosive hits of 2016 with the top three going to Sia’s “Cheap
Thrills” with 12.5 Million Shazams, Kungs & Cookin’ on 3 Burner’s “This
Girl” with 12.3 Million Shazams, and Electronic Dance Music (EDM) star Alan
Walker’s “Faded” with 12 Million Shazams respectively.

Mike Posner’s house music “I
Took a Pill in Ibiza (Seeb Remix)” came fourth followed by Twenty One Pilots
“Stressed Out” at fifth and The Chainsmokers “Don’t Let Me Down” at number 6.

Notable mentions in the list
would be Lukas Graham’s hit single “7 years” and Justin Biebers “Love Yourself”
which ranked in at 7th and 10th respectively.

“Don’t be so shy” by Pop
singer Imany and one of the feel good songs of the year, DNCE’s “Cake by the
Ocean” finished 8th and 9th respectively.
