100 Most Thumbed Up Songs of the Year – from The Weeknd and Taylor Swift to Skynyrd and Journey

OAKLAND, Calif.–Nov. 23, 2015– Pandora (NYSE:P), the world’s largest music discovery platform, today released the 100 most thumbed up songs of 2015. Like Pandora listeners themselves, the Top Thumb Hundred reflects a wide range of music. Pop divas Taylor Swift and Beyoncé, crooners Sam Smith and John Legend, hip hop’s Rich Homie Quan, Fetty Wap, Drake (and yes, Meek Mill), even legendary artists Lynyrd Skynyrd and Ben E. King made the list. To listen to full Thumb Hundred mixtape, click here.

“Listeners flock to Pandora to hear their favorite music,” said Lars Murray, SVP, Pandora Music Makers Group. “The Thumb Hundred is unique in radio. It isn’t a list of what Pandora told people to listen to, it’s a true reflection of what more than 78 million monthly listeners told us
their top songs for the year are, through every single thumb up.”

So, who made the cut? While The Weeknd took the top spot with “Earned It” (and graced the list a total of three times), Drake has the honor of making the list 12 times (for either his own music or collaborations). Not to be outdone, Taylor Swift makes four solo appearances. You can view the entire Top Thumb Hundred below:
