The top 100 most-read lyrics is dominated by Olivia Rodrigo’s breakup anthem “Drivers License”: “And you’re probably with that blonde girl/ Who always made me doubt/ She’s so much older than me/ She’s everything I’m insecure about.”

Meanwhile , Joel Corry’s “Heart & Heart” — which features MNEK and was remixed by Tiesto — was the most-streamed workout song, and some 11.7 million fans used Shazam to discover Masked Wolf’s “Astronaut in the Ocean” The Australian hip-hop artist’s sleeper hit may have first been released in 2019, but after going viral on TikTok, it received more Shazams than any other song in the world during 2021.
