Music discovery app Shazam announces Diplo as “the only artist in the world this year with more than 40M shazams,” meaning people worldwide have gone to the platform to identify a song of his in 2015.
This impressive feat should come as no surprise though. Noted as a Shazam Hall Of Fame Legend, he produced some of the year’s hottest records, including “Lean On” with DJ Snake, MØ, and his group Major Lazer.
The pop-laced moombahton record held strong at No. 1 in the world on the app for 16 weeks and landed milestones on other platforms, including Spotify, where it served as its most-streamed song of all-time.
Diplo is currently up for three Grammy nominations, including producer of the year.
