The Killers 'Mr Brightside' Propels Shazam To 10 Million Tracks Milestone
* The Killers' latest single marks milestone high for Shazam
* Shapeshifters' "Lola's Theme" heralded the most popular track tagged since launch
* Further establishes Shazam as a valuable channel to target consumers for both mainstream and unknown artists
The Killers' latest single, "Mr Brightside," has been named as the 10 millionth track to be 'tagged' by consumers using Shazam's music recognition service.
Since Shazam launched its service back in August 2002, Shapeshifters' "Lola's Theme" has been dubbed the most popular track 'tagged' by music loving consumers. No Doubt's "It's My Life" followed closely behind at number two, and "Where is the Love?" from the Black Eyed Peas seized the number three spot.
Consumers no longer need to know the name of the artist in order to be able to purchase their favourite tunes, and this latest milestone cements the company's position in the marketplace as a valuable tool for both mainstream and relatively unknown artists. While Shazam continues to expand its eclectic database, it offers a promotional channel for performers, enabling artists' to reach a diverse audience and in turn help to drive further record sales.
