The streaming music service put together a rather extensive collection of the most popular bands, tracks, and genres of the past year, broken down by country.

In the U.S., Rihanna ranked as the most popular female vocalist, while David Guetta was the most popular male singer. Coldplay was the band most listened to, and tracks by Adele were shared more than any other artist.

David guetta most popular male singer? He's a DJ he's not quite a singer lol that made me laugh so hard.

And Gotye being on the list is understandable but that song was good from November 2011 for another 3 months and has been played out for almost a year.
