The Most Streamed Song of 2015 On Spotify? None Other Than Major Lazer’s & Dj Snake’ ‘Lean On’ Feat. MØ

There’s been plenty hit summer songs this year, and there’s hardly a better example than “Lean On” from Major Lazer, DJ Snake and . It’s one of those songs that you hear multiple times at every festival you’ve been to, but can never complain about. Lean On has received generous radio airplay, and was even the most shazamed song at this year’s Tomorrowland.

The song – released on Mad Decent in the US and Because Music in Europe – reached No 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the US and No 2 on the Official Charts Company singles chart in the UK after its release in March, though it topped the charts in several other countries. Now, you can add “most streamed globally on Spotify” to that ever-growing list of achievements.

Spotify revealed “Lean On” became the streaming service’s most streamed song of all time, with the track accruing over 526 million plays across the globe. The record was previously held by “Thinking Out Loud” by Ed Sheeran. While Major Lazer and DJ Snake were both A-listers in the EDM world before this collaboration, this landmark signals a new chapter for both producers. MØ, only recently an up-and-coming vocalist, also joins the big leagues among pop songstresses with this achievement.lean-on-spotify

The song was recorded by Major Lazer only after it was turned down by both Rihanna and Nicki Minaj, something Diplo came to regard as a blessing in disguise due to its blowout success.
