June 4, 2013 at 6:54 AM (PT)
Every SUMMER needs one great song to be the soundtrack of the season. "Last year, the music identification app SHAZAM predicted that GOTYE's 'Somebody That I Used to Know' would be the most popular song of the SUMMER. Good guess." writes THE DETROIT FREE PRESS.
"This year, SHAZAM has determined that DAFT PUNK's 'Get Lucky' is heir to the Sounds of Summer throne," adds the paper. "The funky tune has pulled in 4 million searches -- the app 'tags' a song every time you hold up a tablet or smartphone to figure out what you're listening to -- and has been #1 on SHAZAM charts in 91 countries."
"Our primary metric is tag volume, editorial judgment, spikes in popularity and watching those trends," said SHAZAM Dir./Music And Content WILL MILLS.
