Gotye

More Gotye now, because his song ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’ has been confirmed as the most streamed track on Spotify this year, perhaps unsurprisingly. The album it was taken from, however, was relegated to the ‘second most streamed’ position by David Guetta’s ‘Nothing But The Beat’.

Flo Rida managed to get two entries in the tracks top ten, as well as just sneaking into the ten most popular albums. Only one other artist, Sia, managed two top ten tracks, though on both occasions it was as a guest vocalist (one of them on Flo Rida’s track ‘Wild Ones’).

Stats are fun, huh? Presumably everyone will start listening exclusively to Christmas music tomorrow and therefore these lists won’t change before the year is out.
