On its blog, iHEARTRADIO writes, "It seems like just yesterday we were ringing in 2015 with glitter, champagne, and RYAN SEACREST. Yet the holidays are fast approaching, which means 2016 is right around the corner. Ah! But before we kick off the new year, we’re taking a look back at the top songs and artists from 2015, according to you, our iHEARTRADIO listeners!"
"TAYLOR SWIFT had an incredible year," continues the blog. "Her first all-pop album, 1989, was a huge risk for the former country artist. Yet by all standards, it has been an incredible and insurmountable success, with each single released going to No. 1 almost immediately. While the record premiered at the end of 2014, it was 2015 that was truly the year of SWIFT. On iHEARTRADIO, TAYLOR SWIFT was the leading artist nationwide for station creates. The singer-songwriter led across 48 states, with only LOUISIANA, MISSOURI and WASHINGTON, D.C. crowning alternative winners. Literally only two states and the nation’s capital didn’t have SWIFT fever -- talk about running the country!"
The artists with the most station creates in 2015 were:
- TAYLOR SWIFT
- THE WEEKND
- SAM SMITH
- MAROON 5
- NICKI MINAJ
- ARIANA GRANDE
- MEGHAN TRAINOR
- FETTY WAP
- LUKE BRYAN
