Spotify Has Revealed The Most Popular Songs Of 2019
As you've probably noticed, Spotify recently released their personalised 'Wrapped' playlists for every user.
That can either be a celebration of your finely curated and pruned musical choices, or - like most of us - a solemn reminder that the things we listen to aren't going unnoticed by someone, somewhere.
Hell, 'Old Town Road' is just a straight banger, right?
Anyway, the world's largest music streaming service has now revealed the tunes that reverberated the most in the headphones and speakers of users over the past year, so here we go.
Occupying the number one spot is Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes' mega-hit 'Senorita'. That's not too much of a surprise - it's got global crossover appeal and was basically ubiquitous through this entire miserable year.
Second on the list is 17-year-old singer/songwriter Billie Eilish with 'bad guy'.
Again, that's not a massive surprise.
Hitting the number three spot is another collaboration, this time between Post Malone and Swae Lee - of Rae Sremmurd fame - on the tune 'Sunflower'.

Rounding out the top five, we've got Ariana Grande's '7 Rings' and, of course, Lil Nas X and Billy Rae Cyrus's 'Old Town Road'.
Straight banger, and you know it.
As for the top artists of 2019, several of the same names feature on that list, too.
Posty is top, followed by Eilish, then Ariana Grande takes the bronze. Perhaps surprisingly, Ed Sheeran only comes in fourth.
Then, an even bigger curveball in Puerto Rican Latin-trap artist Bad Bunny.
As for the rest of the decade, there's a full list of the most streamed songs since 2010 as we head into 2020.
Top of the list is Ed Sheeran's 'Shape of You'. No surprises there. Sheeran's song 'Thinking Out Loud' also takes the No. 5 spot.
That's followed by 'One Dance' by Drake, WizKid, and Kyla.
Then 'rockstar' by Post Malone and 21 Savage, followed by 'Closer' by Halsey and The Chainsmokers.
The decades's top five artists in descending order were Drake, Ed Sheeran, Post Malone, Ariana Grande and Eminem.
Anyway, this might not come as a surprise to anyone, because we are the folks that listened to it, after all.
