4.4bn streams delivered during first year of Official Streaming Chart

More than 4.4 billion streams have been served since the launch of the Official Streaming Chart in May last year.

The Top 100 most streamed tracks accounted for 9.7% of that total and, to celebrate the first anniversary of the chart, The Official Charts Company has released a table of Top 20 streams.

Fun. top the chart with We Are Young, followed by Carly Rae Jepsen’s Call Me Maybe and The Lumineers’ Ho Hey.

Swedish House Mafia’s Don’t You Worry Child and Rihanna’s Diamonds complete the Top 5.

“These figures show just how significant streaming now is in the UK, with more than 4 billion streams over the past year it’s now an essential way of consuming music,” said managing director of Deezer UK Mark Foster.

“With the top 100 tracks accounting for less than 10% of the total stream, they are a mere drop in the ocean of the total tracks listened to. This reflects not only the huge categories of music available on Deezer and other services but also that audio streaming is growing massively in popularity.”

Spotify’s head of Label Relations Europe Kevin Brown added: “The huge number of streams that have been delivered in the first year of the Official Streaming Chart is proof positive of the huge and growing popularity of music streaming, and celebrates the contribution that services like Spotify are making to the music industry.

"Congratulations to the artists that have made it into the Top 20 anniversary chart, all of which have been huge hits with Spotify users, in what has been a great year for music in Britain.”
