Between Spotify, Billboard, and other streaming services, there are a lot of platforms that offer objective looks into “top songs” of 2018. While subjective opinions are a dime a dozen, there’s just no arguing with facts like streaming numbers and sales.


Official Charts, one of the most trusted barometers of UK charts for more than 60 years, has just put out their own list of biggest singles of 2018. These results mirror a lot of the same tracks as found on most-streamed lists from Spotify and Apple Music, but there are some notable differences.

Drake’s “God’s Plan” and Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect” both appear in the top 10, as we’d expect. Aside from that, the rest of the tracks in the top 10 are pretty different. Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa take the top spot with “One Kiss,” while the less globally-popular George Ezra sits right under Drake with “Shotgun.”
