The Official Top 40 Biggest Songs of 2015 revealed

It dominated the dancefloor throughout last year; and today OfficialCharts.com can reveal that Mark Ronson’s Uptown Funk is the biggest song of 2015.

The track, which features Bruno Mars, notched up a combined sales and streaming total of 1.76 million to finish at the top of the end of year chart. The song’s total combined sales since its release in November 2014 stand at 2.25 million.

Uptown Funk has proved unstoppable throughout 2015. As well as spending a total of seven weeks at Number 1, the track logged 39 weeks in the Top 40 before finally exiting in October. View Uptown Funk and the rest of Mark Ronson’s chart history here.

Ronson has fended off competition from several hugely successful tracks released this year to top the year-end chart, which includes 17 Number 1s in the total Top 40.

Finishing at Number 2 is OMI’s Cheerleader (Felix Jaehn Remix). The summer smash first entered the Official Singles Chart at Number 96 in January and steadily scaled the tally for 14 weeks until its April impact date, eventually reaching the summit in May for four consecutive weeks. Cheerleader finishes 2015 with a combined sales total of 1.52 million.

Taking third place on 2015 biggest songs list is Hozier’s Take Me To Church with 1.25 million combined sales. The stirring soul-blues track racked up huge sales over the last 12 months despite never reaching Number 1, peaking at 2 for four consecutive weeks after a 20-week climb inside the Top 40.

At Number 4 is Ellie Goulding’s Love Me Like You Do. The 50 Shades Of Grey movie song topped the chart for four weeks (holding Hozier off the top spot for three of them!) back in February. By the end of 2015, the song notched up 1.19 million combined sales.

Rounding off the end of year Top 5 is Wiz Khalifa’s See You Again. The Fast & Furious 7 tribute to actor Paul Walker, which topped the Official Singles Chart for two weeks in April, finishes close behind Goulding on 1.17 million sales and streams. It’s also the first of two entries for the song’s guest star and co-writer Charlie Puth, who places at 34 with his Meghan Trainor collaboration Marvin Gaye.

Despite being released little over two months ago, Adele’s Hello manages to finish sixth place in the list (1.12 million combined sales). The track smashed Official Chart records upon its release, being the biggest Number 1 single in three years and setting a new one-week streaming record. View Hello’s full UK chart run here.

Further down the tally, Justin Bieber makes four entries in the Top 40, two of which are in the Top 10: What Do You Mean is at 9 (988,000 combined sales) and Sorry finishes at 10 (934,000). His Skillex and Diplo collaboration Where Are U Now is just below at 15 (874,000), and his most recent chart-topper Love Yourself is at Number 24 (719,000).

It’s been an incredible year for Bieber on the Official Chart. Just some of his achievements include having scored his first UK Number 1 with What Do You Mean, logging 10 weeks at the top across his last three tracks, and becoming the first living artist to score eight Top 40 entries following the release of his latest album Purpose.
