Spotify reveals the most-listened to dads ahead of Father’s Day
19 June 2015

Coldplay’s Chris Martin can sip from his ‘world’s best Dad’ mug and feel a bit smug this weekend as he can now also lay claim to the title of most-listened to dad, according to Spotify. The music streaming service has revealed the musical fathers whose tracks get listened to the most, and the Coldplay front man comes out on top, ahead of Eminem and Kanye West. French DJ David Guetta and Chris Brown complete the top five, while Michael Jackson, Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z also make the top 10. The music service has even been nice enough to create a playlist from the findings.

Spotify looked at the number of streams each over the last 12 months in order to come up with the list and also compiled one just of British dads.

On this list Liam Gallagher was second to Martin, with Fleetwood Mac’s Mick Fleetwood in third. Queen’s Brian May is fourth, ahead of Kasabian’s Tom Meighan. Roger Waters of Pink Floyd, Mick Jagger, Matt Bellamy, David Bowie and Johnny Marr complete the top 10. And again, there’s a playlist especially for the occasion.
