As Hip-Hop leads the way for Urban music’s return to radio 2016 has undoubtedly delivered a diverse group of smash hit singles.
One of these cuts, much to the delight of its performers MNEK and Zara Larrson, is ‘Never Forget You‘ which now stands as one of the highest-selling releases of the year…so far.
Where it lands on a list which also includes Drake, Rihanna, Bipolar Sunshine and Future?

When his streaming data and sales are combined Drake’s figure for the first half of the year arrives at the 1.5 billion mark, doing his part to ensure the Universal Music Group dominates this year’s scene on a singles front.
Zara & MNEK‘s ‘You’ stands tall with 92 million streams and 740,000 units sold to its nam as Adele’s ‘Hello’ sits on the lower end of the list with 900,000 units sold by ‘Hello.’
Like Beyonce, who is absent from this list, the singer’s efforts to prioritise albums over singles sees her fare much better on lists which showcase LP sales, as fans often have no reason to purchase individual singles once they’ve already picked up the body of work from which they are pulled from.
