It’s still the country that much of the the US and UK music business look to as a model of the future.

The IFPI in Sweden, where streaming claims 84% of all recorded music revenues, has just confirmed the country’s Top 100 singles for 2015.

As you can see below, the list is led by Major Lazer (feat M0 and DJ Snake)’s Lean On, released via Mad Decent/Because and distributed through Warner.

Second was Ellie Goulding’s Love Me Like You Do (Polydor/Universal), with Kygo (feat. Parson James)’s Stole The Show at No.3.

MBW analysis shows that Universal claimed 42% of the Top 100 by ownership and distribution, with Sony on 32% and Warner on 25%.

The sole ‘pure’ independent entry in the Top 100 was Adele’s Hello – released on XL/Beggars and distribution via PlayGround Music.
