Drake‘s music is in high demand, as he’s been named the most-searched artist on Shazam. According to Variety, songs from the rapper’s discography have been Shazamed over 350 million times, with his most popular track being 2016’s “One Dance.” The single hit 17 million Shazams.

Drake’s feat was mentioned as Shazam released a list of its most searched artists and songs to celebrate its 20th birthday. The platform — which identifies songs based on a short sample played through a device’s microphone — also highlighted other notable artists and tracks that made Shazam history in the last two decades. 

“Can’t Hold Us” by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis featuring Ray Dalton, for example, is the most searched song in the hip-hop/rap category. The top R&B/Soul song is “All of Me” by John Legend.

Lil Wayne and Eminem have also cemented their names in Shazam history. The former was the first artist to hit both 1 million and 10 million Shazams, while Em’s “Cleanin’ Out My Closet” was the first song to reach 1,000 Shazams.
