The 50 most streamed Australian songs in the country has been revealed in APRA AMCOS' 2020 Year In Review report today.
Almost unsurprisingly, Tones & I's global hit Dance Monkey has taken out top spot on the list followed by another single from the Melbourne artist, Never Seen The Rain at #2 and Johnny Run Away at #7.
Flume's collab with Vera Blue, Rushing Back, has come in at #3 ahead of Guy Sebastian's Choir at #4 and Aussie heavyweights 5 Seconds Of Summer's Youngblood at #5.
The top ten also features international entries based on the criteria that songs must be "written or co-written by an Australian APRA member".
US pop star Katy Perry's Never Really Over - which was co-written by local artists including Hayley Warner, Daniel James and Leah Haywood - placed at #9 and Nashville-born Noah Cyrus' July - co-written by Peter Harding (aka THIEF) - placed at #10.

APRA AMCOS’ annual Year In Review report showed a record $54.4m in international revenue, thanks to Tones & I, Sia, 5 Seconds Of Summer, Tame Impala and more, and $206m in digital revenue, which is up 17.4% on last year.
Unfortunately, the Australasian music rights management organisation reported an overall downgraded financial year result, with its group revenue at $474.5m instead of the original budgeted figure of $488.9m.
Restrictions around live music and touring resulted in a huge downturn for public performance income, with $73m of income reported in that category, down from last year’s $92.4m, while royalties payable to songwriters, publishers, affiliated societies and rights holders was down 0.9% on last year at $407.3m.
