2012 TOP 100 HITS – #6
Lana Del Rey – Summertime Sadness – 442 221 000
The #1 female hit of the list is signed by Lana Del Rey who’s also the only female with more than 2 songs charted – she has 4. Summertime Sadness is the kind of songs that sticks around and then never leaves.
It wasn’t a big #1 smash – it peaked at #6 in the US and #4 in the UK, on both thanks to the Cédric Gervais remix. But the song was streamed a lot and continues to be so. Its parent album, Born to Die, is one of the biggest records from 2012 at Spotify. Its ongoing streams and sales enable it to constantly feature inside the Billboard BB200 Album Chart. Considering those numbers, this situation isn’t going to change anytime soon.
