This is a difficult question to answer definitively, as it depends on personal preferences, and what genres of music people tend to listen to. However, according to Nielsen, the song that was the most listened to across all formats in the United States in 2016 was “Formation” by Beyoncé.
Released in February 2016 as the lead single from her sixth studio album “Lemonade”, “Formation” quickly became a radio and chart hit.
