The Scottish artist Calvin Harris tops the chart produced by PPL of top 15 “most played” Scottish artists of 21st century. After scrutinization, the firm discovered that a track by Harris or featuring him is played every six minutes in the UK.
PPL’s Repertoire team found his top three most-played tracks are We Found Love (Rihanna featuring Calvin Harris), This is What You Came For (featuring Rihanna) and How Deep is Your Love (Calvin Harris and Disciples).
The chart was designed to celebrate Scotland’s contribution to the UK music industry. The firm found that Harris had the equivalent of five years of continuous UK radio and TV airplay in the 21st century.
The chart was based on PPL UK radio and TV airplay data from 2000 to 2017. Peter Leathem, PPL chief executive officer, said: “Calvin Harris deserves great credit for his music proving so popular and being played so extensively throughout the UK.”
