The song recognition platform, owned by Apple, turns two decades old and celebrates it by creating a playlist of the most Shazamed songs.
The platform to identify songs turns two decades old this August, so it decided to celebrate its anniversary by creating a list of the most Shazamed songs in each year, from 2002 to the present. It can be heard from Apple Music.
The playlist in question is called "20 Years of Shazam Hits" and includes songs like Adele's Rolling in the Deep, Ed Sheeran's Shape of You, Evanescence's Bring Me to Life and Mayor Lazer's Lean On, among others.
Some data that was also released in this celebration, is for example that Drake is the most searched artist in history, with more than 350 million searches during his career.
In addition, it was revealed that the most requested song to recognize through this service was Dance Monkey by Tones and I and the first song to reach one million shazams was Tik Tok by Ke$ha in February 2010.
Other interesting statistics on the platform is that it has just exceeded 70,000 million song recognitions and that it has 225 million users worldwide.
