The platform also ranked artists by genre, with Eilish notably dominating the alternative category, not pop (which Grande reigned over). Also worth a double-take: Queen was named the top-streamed rock artist, likely aided by last year's Bohemian Rhapsody Freddie Mercury biopic.
Apple Music also released global 2019 data for Shazam, the music discovery app it acquired last September -- offering a window into not just what music streamers favor, but what new music they're seeking out. Eilish's "bad guy" topped the list of most-Shazamed songs this year, followed by Lewis Capaldi's sleeper hit ballad "Someone You Loved" and Tones And I's quirky, electro-infused "Dance Monkey." In fact, "Dance Monkey" is named the most-Shazamed song in a day, both for 2019 and all-time.
Shazam appears to differ in its genre rankings: Here, Eilish tops pop, Capaldi takes the alternative/rock category, and Lil Nas X takes country.
As for the most-Shazamed artist? That'd be Colombian heavy-hitter J Balvin, who climbed to the top thanks to hits like "Con Altura" with ROSALÍA and "China," a super-collab with Anuel AA, Daddy Yankee, Karol G and Ozuna.
