On the occasion of his 20th Anniversary, Shazam, the popular application to recognize songs, has compiled a list of the most sought after artists by this music recognition platform capable of identifying in a few seconds what melody is playing, who is its interpreter and even showing a link to be able to listen or purchase the song.

The Shazam service started working through a call to the number 2580, receiving the response to the query through an SMS

It may seem surprising that the one who has won the title of most wanted artist is Drake, with no less than 350 million searcheswith his song “One dance” being the most searched, with more than 17 million searches.

It was in August of the year 2o02 when the first version of Shazam appeared, at that time a service based on text messages and operating only in the United Kingdom. To identify the music, users had to dial the number 2580 on their mobile phones and hold the phone’s microphone close to a speaker where the tune they wanted to identify was playing. Subsequently received an SMS which included information about the title of the song and the name of the artist.

At that time the most searched song on Shazam was “Crazy” by Gnarls Barkley, although the most searched song in the entire history of Shazam is “Dance Monkey” by the Australian singer Tones and I, which in 2019 achieved 41 million queries.

It would be already in 2008 when Shazam would acquire its current application format for mobile devices, reaching the Android ecosystem first in October of that year. In June 2021, the figure of 1,000 million monthly searches had been reached, having exceeded during August 2022 the total number of 70 billion searches, with more than 225 million users monthly around the world.

To commemorate the 20th anniversary of its operation, Shazam has released a list of the most searched songs, establishing criteria by musical genre with the following results:
