TAG, THEY'RE IT: SHAZAM'S BIG MOVERS

When a indie band's cover of a Snow Patrol song is the biggest mover on Shazam's USA Top 100 Tags Chart—outpacing even the hot new Nicki Minaj track, as well as several other big singles—you know it's had a mighty TV sync. And The Wind and the Wave got what might be the mother of all scripted syncs: the final, wrenching moments of the 4/30 Grey's Anatomy (don't click the link if you're planning to binge-watch in 10 years and don't want a spoiler).

You can see with your own goddamn eyes what the other Top 5 jumpers are; also making strides are Calvin Harris' "Pray to God," Fall Out Boy's "Uma Thurman," OMI's "Cheerleader," Jason Aldean's "Tonight Looks Good on You" and James Bay's "Hold Back the River." For more of what Americans are pointing their phones at, sortable by rank, artist and greatest gainers, go here

On the U.K. side, EDM rules the rankings but two tracks from the Empire ST are among the top jumpers.
