100 Most-Streamed Dance Songs
This playlist reveals the century of hits that have kept the UK dancing—through good to the most challenging of times. It’s a snapshot of the zeitgeist across British dance floors since 2015, with certain genres flexing their muscles and a few key artists rising up. The playlist’s king? Step forward, Calvin Harris. His own evolution from DIY dance-pop architect to genre-surfing one-man global hit factory mirrors dance music’s own purposeful evolution through the period. Harris helped encourage A-list pop talent from Rihanna to Dua Lipa to explore dance spheres—something artists including David Guetta, Clean Bandit and Sigala have also done with extraordinary success. But it’s not all starry hook-ups on this playlist. You’ll find reworked ’90s R 'n' B smashes, an iconic garage moment, Ibiza anthems and almost everything in between. Moreover, you’ll find memories. Memories of unforgettable nights and hazier nights, memories of car sing-alongs and holiday hits and memories you might just make this weekend. Enjoy the rarefied air of these classics here.
