It’s that time of year again where the major streaming services begin to compile data on the most played songs. Spotify recently compiled a chart of the most viral tracks of 2016, ranking the songs that garnered the most streams over the last eight months.
While much of the list is comprised of expected pop favorites like Drake, the top ten features three of EDM’s most commercially viable acts, including The Chainsmokers, Major Lazer and Calvin Harris. Major Lazer and Justin Bieber’s recently released single “Cold Water” has already managed to climb to the number two spot, which is a staggering achievement considering it was released less than two weeks ago.
Calvin Harris grabbed the number five spot with his Rihanna collaboration on “This Is What You Came For,” while The Chainsmokers clocked in at number nine with “Don’t Let Me Down” featuring Daya. Of course, there’s still a few more months left in the year, which means the duo’s recent single with Halsey still has time to join the most viral tracks of 2016.
