Diplo is the most Shazamed artist of 2015
The most ‘Shazamed’ artist of 2015 has officially been announced as Diplo, having had his music identified more than 40 million times this year by the music discovery app. It comes as no surprise, given his heavy involvement in two of the largest dance acts of the moment: Jack Ü and Major Lazer, which received 27m and 9.6m Shazams respectively. Add on Diplo’s personal namesake, which received another 4.6m Shazams and you’ve got the makings of one very impressive metric.
Diplo announced the news on Facebook, saying: “I guess that means no one knows my music or who the f I am since u had to Shazam me 40 million times .. U could have just followed me on soundcloud it would save you some time.. also pic of me in 2008 when I was popping in shiny suits .. But no seriously thanks.”
Last year’s Shazam results proved equally as dance-heavy, with Avicii and David Guetta at the top. The full list of this year’s rankings has not yet been released.
