Spotify brings users tons of songs at their fingertips, from new hits by current artists to classics that you still love listening to on repeat. But what's the world's favorite track? According to The Guardian, the most-streamed song on Spotify is not an old school rock anthem or even Adele's record-breaking new single - instead, it's a surprising DJ track from 2015 that few would assume earned the title.

Major Lazer's "Lean On" is the track that has been streamed the most on Spotify, which should surprise pretty much everyone considering that the song didn't even top the charts in the United States. In fact, The Guardian reports that it only reached No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the US, though it did climb higher on charts from other countries. "Lean On" was actually turned down by both Rihanna and Nicki Minaj, which shows just how much this tune flew under the radar before earning a seriously impressive title. Looks like RiRi and Nicki may have missed out. Though "Lean On" may not seem like the world's most streamed song, the tune is an appropriate addition to so many playlists, from your butt-busting "Workout" list to your "Getting Ready To Go Out" one. Listen to it again, and you may just remember why this song scored such a coveted title.
