March 8 is International Women's Day, and to celebrate we're looking at the most-streamed tracks by female artists in the UK.

The UK's most-streamed song by a female artist is Dance Monkey by Australian singer-songwriter Tones & I, with 344.1 million plays, according to Official Charts Company data. The track, released in 2019, also holds the UK record for the longest-reigning Number 1 single by a female artist, at 11 weeks.

In second is Dua Lipa, whose breakout global smash (and two-week UK Number 1) New Rules claims the UK's most-played song by a British female artist, with 261.1 million plays. Dua's huge chart success over the past three years is recognised with three more appearances in the Top 40, with Calvin Harris collaboration One Kiss (on which she holds a joint-lead credit) at 4 (258 million streams), Don't Start Now at 11 and IDGAF at 22.

Billie Eilish's Number 2-peaking Bad Guy ranks third on 258.5 million plays, while Lady Gaga’s 2018’s Number 1 Shallow with Bradley Cooper rounds out the Top 5 on 253 million plays.

US singer Ava Max claims the most-streamed debut single by a female artist with Sweet But Psycho, placing sixth overall on 243.7 million streams, while Mariah Carey’s 1994 festive classic All I Want For Christmas Is You is seventh, on 235 million – the oldest song on the chart.

Camila Cabello features twice in the Top 40 with her Number 1 hits Havana (8) and Senorita (with Shawn Mendes, 12), as does Sia with Cheap Thrills (9) and Chandelier (17), while British star Mabel makes a double appearance with Don’t Call Me Up (14) and Finders Keepers (40). Fellow Brit Anne-Marie scores two entries with 2002 at 10 and Friends with Marshmello at 23.

Elsewhere, streaming powerhouse Ariana Grande has the most entries in the Top 40 with five, leading with Thank U, Next at 13, and Little Mix are the only girl group in the chart, with three placings: Shout Out To My Ex at 19, Black Magic at 30, and Touch at 34.

Go Tones *.*

'I Like It' sticks out in the top 20, it doesn't seem anywhere near as big as the others.

to its credit it did have a rather long chart run including 7 weeks top 10 despite its #8 peak

40-23-20-15-17-19-19-16-13-9-9-8-8-9-11-8-9-14-31-40-39-45-48-56-63-67-x-66-x

if Sales were included too, presumably Hello and One Last Time would be ahead of it (and a couple of other obvious ones lower down the list).

Finders Keepers being in the top 40 seems bizarre. The list is very skewed towards the last 5 years (understandable given it's in relation to streaming) so there's a real absence of lots of big name legacy females like Britney, Madonna, Xtina, etc.

This will change overtime as we are seeing legacy songs improving year on year. Will be interesting to see how it looks in another 5 years time.

Not to the same extent that new female releases are streamed though. I'd be surprised if any legacy songs get a look in.

I think the most surprising one in that list is A Thousand Years! Those consistent streams have made a big impact over time.

Yes, from 2014 onwards it's climbed no higher than #58!

How comes "Rewrite the stars" is there at 38 but the far bigger "This is Me" by Keala Settle nowhere?

I don't know if that's legit or if they forgot 'This Is Me', but 'Rewrite The Stars' does have more Spotify plays worldwide (594m vs. 536m) - that's partly because 'Rewrite The Stars' got more playlist support (probably by being considered more pop-friendly), but it does still get more plays nowadays too. That said, 'This Is Me' is considerably ahead in terms of UK streams while in the top 200 (84m vs. 57m), so unless there's some huge Apple Music difference I'd guess it's an omission.

Eventually "All i want for Christmas" will take over and by far. Its a pity that Mariah has realsed so many great songs and all she will be remembered for is a Christmas classic.

Shallow will obviously be #2 in no time, and Mariah probably #3 after next Christmas. Will take quite a few years for Mariah to dethrone Tones though as the latter's still going strong.

I'm pretty sure she won't only be remembered for that.
