TAG THEY'RE IT: SHAZAM'S BIGGEST MOVERS

A new remix of a Grammy-nominated track from last year has led to it being the most Shazam-ed song in the world. We also have our first greatest gainer generated by viewers of the Winter Olympics

A remix of Camelphat & Elderbrook’s “Cola” (Big Beat/Atlantic) from Zhu has shot up Shazam’s USA Top 100, rising 194 slots to #7 to make it this week’s greatest gainer—and the most Shazamed song in the world.

Close on its heels are two brand spanking new singles: Blocboy JB’s “Look Alive” (OVO/WBR), which proves that any time you add Drake you will get a significant response, and Iggy Azalea f/Quavo’s “Savior” (Island). Both leap from outside the Top 200 to inside the Top 50.

Italian figure skater Carolina Kostner set her short program to Celine Dion’s version of Jacques Brel’s most famous song, “Ne me quitte pas,” at the South Korea games, pushing it up 130 slots to #71. The song, which translates to “Don’t Leave Me,” has also been recorded by Nina Simone, Cyndi Lauper, Sting, Frank Sinatra and countless others.

Big Boi’s “All Night,” which Epic released in June, is up 110 slots after being featured in Apple’s new HomePod ads.

In the U.K., the latest ad from fashion house River Island pushes Endor f/Feral is Kinky’s “Fever” is up 171 slots to #30, followed by new singles from Calvin Harris and Marshmello & Anne-Marie.
