Spotify has unveiled its annual Year in Music results, with the 30-year-old part-Puerto Rican singer-songwriter the only Latino to make the Top Five on any list.
Mars’ record-tying collaboration with Mark Ronson, “Uptown Funk,” ranked at No. 4 on the Top Five Tracks in the U.S. list.
The track was released in November 2014 and spent fourteen consecutive weeks at number one on the US Billboard Hot 100.
“Uptown Funk” also set a new record for the highest number of streams in one week in the US, with 4.8 million streams. Worldwide, the song has accumulated an estimated 15.2 million points from sales and streams.
Overall, Spotify said 75 million listeners streamed over 20 billion hours of music this year. A large driver of activity came from the new Discover Weekly playlists, which reached 1.7 billion streams since launching over the summer.
