To all the lovers and romantics out there, Spotify has revealed some heart warming data on the top love songs globally ahead of Valentine's day. Whether you're planning a romantic date or celebrating the single life, the chances are that All of Me by John Legend will be part of your soundtrack this Valentine's Day. Based on Spotify's listeners, the data shows the mind-blowing popularity among those who just love this track:

  • "All of Me" is the most-added song in "love"-themed playlists. Spotify listeners have created more than 75 million playlists with the word love in the title.
  • The track is also the top song choice for both men and women on playlists titled Valentine's Day
  • "All of Me" has been added to more than 29M playlists
  • Since its release in 2013, streams of the track have spiked by at least 50% every year on Valentine's Day - most notable spike was in 2017 with an 85% increase in streams

"The impact of 'All of Me' continues to amaze and inspire me," John Legend told Spotify. "I'm so honoured to know we created something that has meant so much to so many people. I wrote this song to express how I felt to the woman I love as we were about to commit to a lifetime together. But, often, the best songs are able to express something in a way that is both personal and universal. I'm grateful to know that lovers around the world have connected with this song and made it their own."

Spotify fans simply can't get enough of the Legend of Love (and PEOPLE's 2019 "Sexiest Man Alive") - his new single "Conversations in the Dark" has already seen more than 10 million streams on Spotify since its release last month. And according to John, the track has wife Chrissy Teigen's stamp of approval.
