This Is Spotify's Most-Streamed Song

Fun fact: Both Rihanna and Nicki Minaj turned down the chance to sing it.

Spotify has revealed its most popular track ever, and TBH, it's a bit of a surprise.

For one, it's not a Michael Jackson classic or, you know, Beyoncé. And then there's the fact that it's not exactly a number-one song, peaking at No. 4 and No. 2 spots in the US and UK respectively. So, what song has quietly racked up 526 *million* plays worldwide?

That would be the infectious, Bollywood-inspired club banger "Lean On," by Major Lazer. The track is made up of producers Diplo and Switch, featuring MØ (you might know her from this ridiculously-good Spice Girls cover) and DJ Snake.

And here's the craziest part: the song landed in Major Lazer's lap after being turned down by Rihanna AND Nicki Minaj, which is like Sarah-Michelle-Gellar-turning-down-the-role-of-Cher-in-Clueless cray.

As for who Diplo and the gang knocked out of the top spot, that would be Ed Sheeran with his pull-at-your-heart-strings ballad "Thinking Out Loud." Better luck next time, Eddy boy!
