Avicii Has the Most Shazamed Song of All Time
The music platform launches a Hall of Fame and shares real-time updates of Shazam counts for each track
It's official: Avicii has the most Shazamed song of all time. The DJ's hit "Wake Me Up" with Aloe Blacc has collected over 19 million queries on Shazam to date.
Close behind is Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" with T.I. and Pharrell Williams garnering over 18 million queries, Goyte's "Somebody That I Used to Know" featuring Kimbra with over 16 million, Passenger's "Let Her Go" with over 15 million and Clean Bandit's "Rather Be" featuring Jess Glynne with over 14 million.
Such numbers are now free to track, thanks to the music platform's relaunch on Wednesday. The app's 100 million monthly mobile active users can note the number of Shazams each song has ever had and whose music is next to join the new Hall of Fame.
Shazam's Platinum Hall of Fame honorees — musicians whose tracks have collected more than 15 million queries — will receive a custom award designed and manufactured exclusively by Cristaux.
Additionally, users can uninterruptedly stream their Rdio and Spotify playlists and charts from inside the app and scroll through other exclusive content.
