Music streaming services like Pandora know exactly how often each song is played. So it's a breeze for them to put out a year end list of most spun records.
The Hip Hop universe does pretty well on their list, with Australian import Iggy Azalea perhaps the biggest winner in any genre for the year. Her song 'Fancy' was second most spun (after Sam Smith's 'Stay With Me) and she was featured on the fourth most played song, Ariana Grande's 'Problem.' Iggy's other big single, 'Black Widow,' came in 13th.
Drake, YG, ScHoolboy Q and Chris Brown were among the other artists who had multiple mentions on the chart. Peep the whole Pandora 25 most spun list below.
