Wiz Khalifa & Charlie Puth’s “See You Again” Named 2015’s Biggest Global Single; Adele’s “25” Top Album

The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry will be releasing its global music report this Tuesday. As a teaser, the organization has revealed 2015’s top global digital singles and albums.

Leading the singles chart is Wiz Khalifa’s “See You Again (featuring Charlie Puth).” Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk (featuring Bruno Mars)” takes #2 on the global digital singles list, with Ed Sheeran’s #3 “Thinking Out Loud,” Maroon 5’s #4 “Sugar,” and Major Lazer & DJ Snake’s #5 “Lean On (featuring MØ)” rounding out the Top 5.

Ellie Goulding’s #6 “Love Me Like You Do,” Adele’s #7 “Hello,” Taylor Swift’s #8 “Blank Space,” OMI’s #9 “Cheerleader,” and Jason Derulo’s #10 “Want To Want Me” form the balance of the Top 10.

Despite not emerging until the eleventh month of the year, Adele’s blockbuster “25” predictably tops the album chart. The IFPI had previously revealed Adele as the year’s top global artist.

Ed Sheeran’s “x” takes #2 on the album chart, while Taylor Swift’s #3 “1989,” Justin Bieber’s #4 “Purpose,” and Sam Smith’s #5 “In The Lonely Hour” complete the Top 5.

The balance of the Top 10: One Direction’s #6 “Made In The AM,” the #7 “Fifty Shades Of Grey” soundtrack, Coldplay’s #8 “A Head Full Of Dreams,” Meghan Trainor’s #9 “Title,” and The Weeknd’s #10 “Beauty Behind The Madness.”
