Top 10 Most Streamed Songs

The World's Most Beloved Music

In the modern day, streaming has become the most common way people experience music. Streaming services like Pandora, Spotify, and Tidal offer a level of convenience beyond the conventional album (although album sales are still a good indicator of public esteem). Find out which songs people are listening to the most.

(Note: The figures given come from Spotify, the most popular music streaming service. Infoplease is making the assumption that the sampling of users across services would produce similar results. Some services, especially Tidal, have exclusive releases, but due to their exclusivity we assume they would not rank among the most streamed songs available on multiple services.)
