The 20 Best Albums Of 2020 (So Far)
From Dua Lipa to Chloe x Halle, we round up the 20 best albums of 2020 so far.

Shazam has released some insights for the first half of 2020 including the 10 most-shazamed songs — worldwide — on their music discovery app. And the results aren’t all that surprising. The Weeknd comes out on top with his chart-conquering “Blinding Lights,” while other major hits like Roddy Ricch’s “The Box” and Doja Cat’s “Say So” are also in the mix. Streaming phenomenons are equally well-represented. Tones And I’s “Dance Monkey” makes the cut along with SAINt JHN’s “Roses (Imanbek Remix)” and Trevor Daniel’s “Falling.”

More interesting is the breakdown by genre. Dua Lipa’s disco-tinged “Don’t Start Now” was the most-shazamed pop song, while Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus’ “Old Town Road” won the country category. There are a couple of surprises, however. For starters, Foreigner’s 1984 hit, “I Want To Know What Love Is,” was the most-discovered rock song of 2020. Meanwhile, Shakira and Anuel AA’s “Me Gusta” reigned supreme in the Latin category ahead of much bigger chart hits. See all the statistics below.
