American singer John Legend’s “All of Me” is Spotify’s top love song in the UAE and globally, the company has announced ahead of Valentine’s Day.
According to Spotify, the song is the most-added song on ‘love’ themed playlists, and is the most popular for both men and women. To date, it has been added to more than 29 million playlists.
Since the song was first released in 2013, streams of the track have spiked by at least 50 percent every year on Valentine’s Day, with the most notable spike being 85 percent in 2017.
“The impact of ‘All of Me’ continues to amaze and inspire me,” Legend told Spotify. “I'm so honored to know we created something that has meant so much to so many people.”
“I wrote this song to express how I felt to the woman I love as we were about to commit to a lifetime together,” he added. “But, often, the best songs are able to express something in a way that is both personal and universal. I'm grateful to know that lovers around the world have connected with this song and made it their own.”
Legend’s new single – ‘Conversations in the Dark’ – has already seen over 10m streams since being released on Spotify last month.
