Apple Music is throwing its support behind Aussie artists this long weekend with its Stream Local initiative.
The streaming platform has curated a number of playlists that will help users from across the country "discover and support local artists in this time of need”, including an epic 100 Most Streamed Australian Songs playlist, which features 5 Seconds Of Summer, Sia, Tones & I, Dean Lewis, Amy Shark and more.
Seven Sia songs make the top 100, while 5SOS, Amy Shark, Dean Lewis, Hilltop Hoods, Peking Duk and Vance Joy appear five times, with AC/DC, Flume, Guy Sebastian, Troye Sivan, Tones & I, Jessica Mauboy and more also making multiple appearances.
Here’s how the top 10 shapes up:
1. 5 Seconds Of Summer - Youngblood
2. Tones & I - Dance Monkey
3. Dean Lewis - Be Alright
4. Amy Shark - I Said Hi
5. Flume - Never Be Like You (feat. Kai)
6. Sia - Cheap Thrills
7. Illy - Papercuts (feat. Vera Blue)
8. Dean Lewis - Waves
