Now Love Songs has come out on top, with 205,000 streams.

Now Housework is next with 163,000 streams, while Lewis Capaldi is the UK’s most-streamed artist.

The playlists beat other offerings including disco, rock legends, movies and singalong.

Alex McCloy, its senior digital director, said: “Seeing that people are listening to our Now Love and Now Housework playlists puts a smile on our faces.”

Now Housework features the likes of The Boy Does Nothing by Alesha Dixon and Dolly Parton’s 9 To 5.

Love Songs includes tracks from Harry Styles, Capaldi, Justin Bieber and John Legend.

The data has been collected over the last 14 days from the Now Music App.
