Diplo Crowned "Most Shazamed Artist" of 2015


Diplo truly seems on top of the world these days. Aside from his recent three Grammy nominations for his work as Jack Ü, 2015 also saw the release of two new albums; Jack Ü's Skrillex and Diplo Present Jack Ü and Major Lazer's Peace Is The Mission, both of which scored Top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 (Jack Ü's "Where Are Ü Now" and Major Lazer's "Lean On"). Adding on to his tremendous success in 2015, Shazam has now revealed that between all of his projects and solo work, Diplo is the most "Shazamed" musician of 2015. The producer is the only person to have had his work Shazamed over 40 million times this past year.


As noted, Major Lazer's "Lean On" and Jack Ü's "Where Are Ü Now" served as the driving sources for Diplo's Shazam success, with solo single "Be Right There" (produced alongside Sleepy Tom) rapidly gaining traction. As of this week, the song is currently peaking at the 13th position on Billboard's Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart.

With another Major Lazer album on the horizon for next year (including features from The Weeknd and Grandtheft, could Diplo possibly have an even bigger 2016?
