This Is The Most Popular Song of 2017
Spotify just released its 2017 year in music.
As the year comes to an end, it’s time to take a look back and reflect on all of your favorite things of the year. In terms of music, we have a pretty good guess on what your soundtrack of 2017 included: copious amounts of Ed Sheeran.
According to Spotify, most listeners this year were in love with “The Shape of You,” by Ed Sheeran. The song was streamed more than 1.4 billion times, making it the most streamed track of all time. Not only was Sheeran’s song the most popular of the year, he was also the most streamed artist this year, with 47 million monthly listeners globally, and his album ÷ (Divide), was also the most streamed album, picking up 3.1 billion streams since it was released.
Another big hit from 2017 was “Despacito”—a song many considered the song of the summer. The remix with Justin Bieber took the number two spot, and the original recording by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee took the third spot. Rounding out the top five was “Something Just Like This” by The Chainsmokers at number four, and “I’m the One” by DJ Khalid at number five.
