Shazam is one of the most useful apps and always saves the day when we’re plagued by the problem of trying to figure out what catchy tune is playing on the radio. The app listens to the song that’s playing and identifies it for you, pulling up the artist and track info when you call it to the rescue.

The amount of times a song has been Shazamed is a pretty good indicator of both its reach and reception. This year, the songs that were Shazamed the most come as no surprise and match up well with some of the biggest hits of the year.

Demi Lovato topped the global list with “Solo,” an electronic collab with Clean Bandit. Nicky Jam and J Balvin’s “X” came in second with J Balvin tying Cardi B for the most Top 10 appearances. Collabs reigned supreme this year as the only solo track in the Top 10 came from Tom Walker’s emotive and genre-bending “Leave a Light On.”
