Jessie J song 'Domino' tops most-played list of 2012
Monday 15 April 2013
The Voice coach Jessie J has seen her track "Domino" knock spots off other releases to become the most-played track of last year.
The chart-topper edged ahead of popular songs by Gotye and Emeli Sande, according to music royalties body PPL, which analysed radio play in 2012 as well as performances on TV and in venues such as pubs and shops.
Jessie J's single was first released in 2011 but has continued to be played consistently since. The track was also in the running for best single at The Brits.
Kelly Clarkson's "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)" was the seventh most-played song despite only reaching number eight in the UK singles chart.
Jonathan Morrish of PPL - which distributes fees for public play to artists and musicians - said: "The top ten most-played pop songs is always an impressive insight into what the nation has been listening to the previous year.
"These songs will undoubtedly stay with us for a long time."
PPL's latest results show it saw its income grow by 11% to £170.8 million in the past financial year.
The top ten most-played pop songs of 2012 were:
1. Jessie J - Domino
2. Gotye (ft Kimbra) - Somebody That I Used To Know
3. Emeli Sande - Next To Me
4. Maroon 5 (ft Christina Aguilera) - Moves Like Jagger
5. David Guetta (ft Sia) - Titanium
6. Olly Murs - Dance With Me Tonight
7. Kelly Clarkson - Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)
8. Rihanna (ft Calvin Harris) - We Found Love
