Shazam, the app that identifies songs you don't know the name or artist of, just announced who its most searched for artist of the year is — and the honor goes to Diplo, who was Shazamed over 40 million times.

The DJ's response to the honor was a little baffling. He posted the following to Facebook shortly after the news broke: "I guess that means no one knows my music or who the f I am since u had to Shazam me 40 million times .. U could have just followed me on soundcloud it would save you some time. also pic of me in 2008 when I was popping in shiny suits .. But no seriously thanks."

Diplo isn't the only electronica artist dominating Shazam. David Guetta is the No. 2 most Shazamed artist — not of 2015 but of all time.And the most Shazamed song ever is Avicii's "Wake Me Up."
