Lil Uzi Vert Tops SoundCloud Year-End Charts

Ed Sheeran might have dominated the Spotify and Pandora year-end lists, but he took a back seat to Lil Uzi Vert on the SoundCloud year-end tally: the Philadelphia rapper topped both the song and album charts on the streaming platform. His ubiquitous track “XO Tour Llif3” has been streamed 148 million times, which helped boost his “LUV is Rage 2” album to the top spot on the albums chart.

Sheeran was not shut out completely, as his “Shape of You” was the most remixed track on the platform. SZA, Logic, Linkin Park and “Despacito” topped other genre charts, which appear below.
