Spotify users around the world paid tribute to legendary rock star David Bowie on Monday by listening to his greatest hits.
Streaming of his songs globally jumped 2,822 percent on Monday, a Spotify spokesperson told NBC News. Bowie died Sunday night at age 69 after an 18-month battle with cancer.
The most-streamed Bowie hit? That would be "Heroes," which he famously sang next to the Berlin Wall in 1987. The song saw an increase of 3,630 percent.
His 1983 hit "Let's Dance" (up 3,942 percent) was the second most-streamed Bowie song, followed by "Blackstar" (1,120 percent) from the album of the same name, released only two days before his death. "Lazarus," from the same album, came next and saw a 1,084 percent boost.
The fifth most-streamed song was "Life on Mars," one of Bowie's early hits from the 1971 album "Hunky Dory," which increased 4,238 percent.
Fans on Spotify, which recently announced a partnership with lyrics site Genius, have made a bevy of David Bowie-themed playlists. The entertainer currently also owns four of the top 10 songs on iTunes and six out of the top 10 albums, with "Best of Bowie" beating out Adele's "25."
