Shazam - an app, if you weren't aware, used to identify music - has released its list of the top Shazamed songs of the year. Sia's "Cheap Thrills topped the list, and is followed by Kungs vs Cookin' On 3 Burners' "This Girl", and Alan Walker's "Faded". Also making the list are Mike Posner's 'I Took A Pill In Ibiza (Seeb Remix)' at number four, The Chainsmokers' "Don't Let Me Down" [ft. Daya] at number seven, and "Love Yourself" by Justin Bieber rounded out the top 10.
The music identification software company also announced that Drake was the most Shazamed artist of 2016. Coldplay's "Hymn For The Weekend" was the most Shazamed rock track, while The Weeknd and Daft Punk's collaboration "Starboy", finished on top in R&B - a feat considering the song wasn't released until late December.
At the beginning of December, Sia finally released the single for "Angel by the Wings", which was originally feature in the movie The Eagle Huntress, which initially premiered at the Sundance Film Festival back in January.
