However, the main hit on the service was the track "Dance Monkey" by Tones and I.

On August 19, the music recognition service Shazam celebrated its 20th anniversary. During this time, 225 million people joined him, who were looking for 70 billion songs. Most often, people searched for Drake songs - they accounted for more than 350 million searches.

Drake's most popular track on Shazam was "One Dance" with 17 million requests.

However, the main “hit” on Shazam was not Drake’s composition at all, but the single “Dance Monkey” by Australian singer Tones and I. She was searched for in the application as many as 41 million times.

In addition, "Dance Monkey" is the fastest song to reach 20 million Shazams in just 219 days. BTS's "Butter" was the fastest hit to reach 1 million in just over a week, nine days. And Ed Sheeran's "Shape of You" was the fastest to reach 10 million in 87 days.

"Dance Monkey" is also the most played alternative track on Shazam. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis's "Can't Hold Us" was named the most wanted rap single, Passenger's "Let Her Go" won among pop hits, John Legend's "All of Me" among R&B tracks, and among songs of singer-songwriters “Take Me To Church” by Hozier, and dance hits include “Prayer In C” by Lilly Wood & the Prick and Robin Schultz.

"Prayer In C" was also the first song to be requested over 20 million times on Shazam. The first "millionaire" was Kesha's hit "TikTok", while Gotye's "Somebody That I Used to Know" was the first to overcome the mark of 10 million requests. The very first Shazamed song was T.Rex's "Jeepster", and Eminem's "Cleanin' Out My Closet" was the first song to hit 1,000 Shazams.

Among the artists, the championship belonged to Lil Wayne for a long time - in 2009 he became the first musician with 1 million Shazams, and in 2011 - the first "ten million". But in 2015 it was surpassed by David Guetta, whose songs were searched for more than 100 million times.
