“Hotline Bling” may have inspired more memes than any other music video in 2015, but it didn’t make the top 10 of the most streamed music videos of the year. ZUUS, a multi-channel music video network, has the latest stats on what people have been streaming and Ed Sheeran and his bestie New York City ambassador Taylor Swift reigns supreme.
