  • By nature and with over 25 million Shazams each day across the world, Shazam is uniquely positioned to capture the zeitgeist of music and songs that are experiencing significant momentum early on. Last year, the Shazam Discovery Top 50 chart was launched to offer a predictive view on up-and-coming songs from emerging artists. Looking at the Top 10 below, 4 tracks out of 10 have passed through the Shazam Discovery Top 50, taking on average 12 weeks between being featured on the chart-playlist to achieving their peak position on Shazam’s Global charts
  • The most-Shazamed Hip-Hop track "death bed (feat. beabadoobee) [coffee for your head]” was picked up on the Shazam Discovery Top 50 13 weeks before peaking globally, and 9 weeks before peaking in the UK at No. 2
  • Interestingly, 5 of the Top 10 most-Shazamed songs are dance.
