You've been listening, thumbing up, and favoriting all year long, and now we're breaking down what music you were listening to the most on iHeartRadio in 2015. Based on station creations from different artists and songs, and thumbs (AKA when you thumb up a song) on iHeartRadio we've determined all the stop music for this year, based on you, our listeners.
Take a look at what music that you've been listening to the most in 2015:
Top Artist of 2015 (based on stations created on iHeartRadio: Taylor Swift
What can we say, the U.S. is a country full of loyal Swifties. In fact, there were only two states, Louisiana and Missouri, along with Washington D.C., who didn't have T-Swizzle as the top artist of the year.
Top Song (for station creations on iHeartRadio): Mark Ronson & Bruno Mars's "Uptown Funk"
"Uptown Funk" was absolutely one of the BIGGEST songs of the year, which is why so many people checked out stations created from the chart-topping song on iHeartRadio in 2015.
Most "Thumbed" Track of the Year: Ed Sheeran - "Thinking Out Loud"
It's basically impossible NOT to thumb up this song, which is why it won this honor. It was a tight race though. Ed beat three songs from his buddy Taylor Swift, and another one of his own songs that were in the Top 10 of 2015. Also receiving a ton of thumbs this year was Drake's "Hotline Bling," which was the most thumbed song in October -- a great coincidence since Drake's OVO stands for "October's Very Own." 😉
Top-Ranking Genre of the year: R&B
People couldn't get enough R&B this year. But who could blame them with artists like The Weeknd and Drake dominating 2015. Following R&B respectively to round out the Top 5 Genres are Pop, Rap, Country, and Latin.
