The UK's Official Most-Streamed songs of all time

A new all-time chart for a new era of music consumption.

To celebrate the 70th birthday of the UK's Official Singles Chart, we're publishing a very special new countdown of the UK's Official Top 200 most-streamed songs.

Streaming has emerged in the last decade as the dominant form of consuming music - and it's proved to be the greatest leveller in the music industry for an entire generation, if not longer.

Today sees Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi leapfrog his mate Ed Sheeran to officially claim the UK's most-streamed song of all time with his blockbuster Number 1 hit, Someone You Loved.

Climbing the seemingly insurmountable cliff-face of the success of Ed Sheeran's Shape Of You, Someone You Loved reaches the summit with over 561 million plays to its name, made up of 480m audio streams and 81 million video streams.

To date, 132 singles have been streamed more than 200 million times in the UK. As well as huge contemporary hits from the likes of Capaldi, Ed Sheeran, George Ezra, Lil Nas X and Billie Eilish, we see viral hits like Glass Animals' Heat Wave, Baby Shark by Pinkfong, Savage Love by Jawsh 685 & Jason Derulo and Olivia Rodrigo's Drivers License.

A range of blockbusting earlier classics make the cut too, having transcended their original formats to find success in the streaming age, including The Killers’ Mr Brightside, Oasis’ Wonderwall and festive classics from the likes of Mariah Carey and Wham!.
