On Tuesday, 20 October, the superstar DJ Calvin Harris reached 1 billion streams on Spotify. That’s right, neither one hundred thousand nor one million but one billion!
How did he get there? Precisely, thanks to This Is What You Came For” featuring Rihanna (in 2016) and “One Kiss” with Dua Lipa (in 2018).
The news was released by Calvin Harris himself, who shared the two “1,000,000,000 Spotify Buttons” on his social media channels and celebrating with his fans and a simple “Cheers” message as the caption to his post.
Only a few songs from the electronic dance music world can claim such a goal. Among these, we have:
– Happier – Marshmello (1.310.296.931 plays)
