You know those songs that you just want to listen to over and over again? The ones with that certain something that hooks into your brain and insists you play it one more time? Well, now we know which songs this year are clawing their way deepest into people’s brains.

The streaming music service Deezer on Wednesday unveiled the “Most Addictive Songs” of 2016, a first-of-its-kind list that tracks the songs users have played, and played again, more than an average number of times. Unlike a ranking based purely on play counts, this list looks at how often users listened to the song. In fact, while the lineup contains a number of popular artists, the 10 tracks differ significantly from a separate list of the most popular songs on Deezer, a service that counts more than 6 million subscribers spread across 180 countries.

In addition to popular acts like the Weeknd, the list also contains up-and-comers and songs that haven’t enjoyed the benefit of radio airplay or massive cross-marketing efforts.

“It’s always great to see new artists develop into superstars,” Darrick Williams, Deezer’s U.S. editorial manager, said in a statement. “We’re very excited to work with these on-the-rise artists to see who will close out this year on top.” 

Of course, a song’s ability to stick in someone’s ears varies from person to person. Deezer users who are curious about which songs have gotten their hooks deeply into them can easily find out, thanks to the Binge button, a newly launched feature that tallies a user’s playlist data. 

Check out the full list below. 

Bryson Tiller — “Sorry Not Sorry” 

90 percent more likely to get repeat listens

Critics and radio stations mostly ignored Tiller’s debut album, “Trapsoul,” when it came out last year, but he is the only artist to score two entries on this list. This track, which sticks a sample from “Street Fighter” in the middle of a thicket of trap drum programming, feels like a bit of a mess, but it’s a perfect example of how R&B, hip-hop and electronic music are mixing together. Tiller kind of sings, sometimes raps, sometimes toasts, and while he does none of those things well on its own, the mix is worth scrutinizing. 

Fall Out Boy — “Centuries”

72 percent more likely to get repeat listens

The bro-rock titans’ comeback single, which has been out for nearly a year and a half, benefits mightily from a very different song: That’s the hook from Suzanne Vega’s “Tom’s Diner,” one of the most successful radio singles of all time, you hear at the beginning. The band had said it wanted to bring the song back into the culture, probably for the same reason that Puff Daddy built his first hits by ripping off the Police and Diana Ross: The kids were too young to recognize the source material. Not that Vega minds. She gets a songwriting credit, and she even performed the song with the band back in 2014. 

The Chainsmokers featuring Rozes — “Roses”

61 percent more likely to get repeat listens

This DJ duo from New York blew up thanks to a viral video called “Selfie” in 2014, but this is considerably more polished. Its every contour and texture is radio-friendly, and after a brief gestation period, the song is blooming. It has climbed up radio charts, both on dance/mixshows and regular airplay, according to Billboard and Nielsen

Future — “Stick Talk”

61 percent more likely to get repeat listens

Forget Drake and Kanye West and Fetty Wap. There are people who will argue that the most important person in hip-hop right now is Future, an ultra-prolific rapper and producer from Atlanta who has changed the way his genre sounds on a number of levels. Thanks to his influence, a strange melodic sway and lilt can be heard in everybody from Fetty Wap to R. Kelly, and the dark, moody productions he favors have put producers like Metro Boomin and Mike Will Made It on the map. This is far from Future’s biggest song, but something about it seems to be resonating. 

Chris Brown — “Liquor”

60 percent more likely to get repeat listens

Why this Chris Brown song, and not “Back to Sleep,” or “Wrist,” or “Zero,” or any of the other singles promoted off his most recent album, “Royalty,” has stuck in so many ear cavities is not immediately clear. Its wobbly, reeling keyboard line does pair with the Auto-tuned vocal in a strangely compelling way, but the song feels more like a sketch than a fully realized composition. But if something this raw can hit, that has to augur well for Tone Stith, one of the song’s producers and someone industry insiders have high hopes for

G-Eazy — “Me, Myself & I”

60 percent more likely to get repeat listens

No matter what happens through the rest of G-Eazy’s career, he has set a high bar for his next singles. Since this song was released last fall, it’s been streamed more than half a billion times across a number of sites and services. It also has effectively launched the performing career of Bebe Rexha, the veteran songwriter who sings the chorus of “Me, Myself & I.” 

Twenty One Pilots — “Stressed Out”

59 percent more likely to get repeat listens

This group wanted its most current album to push them into the mainstream, and it has. “Blurryface” was certified platinum by the RIAA last month, and it piqued so much curiosity about the band that it also pushed its predecessor, “Vessel,” to a gold certification. “Stressed Out,” which has also been certified platinum, is probably on this list for lyrical reasons more than musical ones, thanks to its direct lines about how getting older doesn’t solve the problems of adolescence. 

Bryson Tiller — “Exchange”

53 percent more likely to get repeat listens

The second Tiller entry on this list is a little less chaotic, and in it, you can start to hear a little bit more of why Pandora picked him as one of the artists it expects to dominate 2016. Zane Lowe debuted this one on his Beats 1 radio show, and since then, it’s been one of the songs that Lowe and the rest of the DJs at Apple have played most enthusiastically. Its producer, Fade Majah, is a Timbaland disciple who also helped produce the similarly lonely “Yeah, I Said It” for Rihanna.


The Weeknd — “Earned It (Fifty Shades of Grey)”

50 percent more likely to get repeat listens

Despite its fleshy (read: NSFW) music video, this is probably one of the tamest songs the Weeknd has ever released. Even though it got a huge lift from the movie that it partly shares its title with, this song is more respectful than obsessive, more awed than nihilistic. It may also earn some points for being one of a handful of Weeknd songs you can listen to in a car with your parents without dying of shame. 

Jhené Aiko — “The Worst”

48 percent more likely to get repeat listens

By far the slowest-burning song on this list, “The Worst” is part of an EP that came out in late 2013. Aiko’s biggest days are probably ahead of her — she has a duet album with Big Sean, called “Twenty88,” coming out Friday — and while this won’t be on it, you can imagine why this is resonating with people.
