The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights” positively dominated  the iHeartRadio charts in 2020. Regarded as the U.S’ largest network, the iHeartRadio charts present total audience spins and streams across the network’s broadcast stations and digital outlets — and The Weeknd’s signature hit was far in the lead, with more than 2 billion total audience spins on the network.

“The Weeknd’s ‘Blinding Lights’ was by far iHeartRadio’s biggest song of the year,” says Tom Poleman, the station’s chief programming officer. “Broadcast radio continues to dominate overall listening, reaching about 90% of Americans every month; it’s that kind of mass audience exposure that enabled ‘Blinding Lights’ to hit an incredible 2.1 billion total audience spins on iHeart stations and our app — and making it America’s most listened-to song.”
