Today Shazam has released its figures for the highest ranking artists and songs of this year, alongside its annual predictions of artists that it expects will break during the coming year, with Avicii adding a number of accolades to an already extensive list of impressive firsts in 2013.

Amassing a huge 26.5 million Shazams globally over the course of this year, Avicii is the most Shazamed electronic artist in the world in 2013 and the second most Shazamed artist overall. This ranks him above the likes of Rihanna, Daft Punk and Justin Timberlake, who all feature in the Top 10.

‘Wake Me Up!’, the first single to be taken from his debut album ‘True’, ranks as the second most Shazamed song in the world after ‘Blurred Lines’ with 14.7 million Shazams, ranking #1 in the UK and #2 in Australia, Italy and Spain as well as #4 in the US.
