The end of the year means it’s time to see who made it out on top! Digital music app Pandora has just revealed their 25 most played songs of the year, and it’s pretty much what you’d expect. Sam Smith, who’s had a crazy successful year with his plethora of singles, can now call himself the hope of Pandora for taking the #1 spot for his “Stay With Me” single. Of course the big dogs of the industry are prominently featured: Drake, Iggy Azalea, Lil Wayne, and Tinashe with her “2 On” single making the list comes as no surprise either.

Who didn’t make the list you ask? Oh, just BEYONCE and NICKI MINAJ! In the most bizarre turn of events, Ms. Onika Maraj, who gave us all an official collaboration with Beyoncé this year, was not featured on Pandora‘s Top 25 list. Maybe Pandora needs to change their algorithms, because that’s really hard to believe considering the success of her non-album singles, combined with her album single releases and epic features she’s done this year. And does Bey really need an explanation as to why she should be Top 25?! Get it together, Pandora!
