Shazam Reveals Most-Tagged Songs of 2012, Predicts 2013′s Top Artists

shazam Shazam Reveals Most Tagged Songs of 2012, Predicts 2013s Top ArtistsJust like Spotify before it, Shazam has revealed the songs its users have listened to the most in the past year. Well, OK, there’s a difference between the two apps, but the similarities in listening habits run deep. It’s also pretty damn disappointing, considering how turrible most of these songs are. What’s slightly redeeming is how much the people at Shazam seem to actually love good music, as their list of artists poised to blow up in 2013 is pretty solid. Well, except for French Montana.

You can peep the most-tagged songs of 2012 below. The numbers you see after each song title is exactly how many times each song was tagged. Below that, you can see Shazam’s 2013 predictions. And always remember: David Guetta is the fucking worst. [via]
