With more than 1.1 billion streams, John Legend's song All of Me is the top love song globally on Spotify, just in time for Valentine's Day.

The data that shows the mind-blowing popularity among those who love this track

All of Me is the most-added song in "love"-themed playlists. Spotify listeners have created more than 75 million playlists with the word love in the title. The track is also the top song choice for both men and women on playlists titled Valentine's Day.

All of Me has been added to more than 29 million playlists.

Since its release in 2013, streams of the track have spiked by at least 50% every year on Valentine's Day - most notable spike was in 2017 with an 85% increase in streams.

"The impact of All of Me continues to amaze and inspire me," John Legend told Spotify in a statement released to the press. "I'm so honoured to know we created something that has meant so much to so many people. I wrote this song to express how I felt to the woman I love as we were about to commit to a lifetime together. But, often, the best songs are able to express something in a way that is both personal and universal. I'm grateful to know that lovers around the world have connected with this song and made it their own."

Spotify fans can't get enough of "the Legend of Love" - his new single Conversations in the Dark has already seen more than 10 million streams on Spotify since its release last month.

And according to John, the track has wife Chrissy Teigen's stamp of approval.

Music makes for the best romantic gift on Valentine's Day – there has been a growing trend with listeners choosing to share their Valentine's Day playlists with their special someone on Spotify. Last year, Valentine's Day playlists were gifted almost twice as much on 14 February compared to 2018.
