DAVID GUETTA has followed EMINEM and ED SHEERAN into the SPOTIFY record book. Already verified as the most-followed artist on SPOTIFY with 6.8 million followers, GUETTA has hit a landmark two billion streams on the service, making him just the third musician in history to reach that mark.
Enthused GUETTA: “I want to thank you so much for helping me reach this incredible milestone, 2 billion streams on SPOTIFY! Wow, mind-blowing!”
GUETTA's latest album, "Listen," released last NOVEMBER, already boasts four international chart hits, while his most recent single, "Hey Mama" feat. NICKI MINAJ, BEBE REXHA and long-term collaborator AFROJACK, has had 95 million global streams and is currently #6 on the GLOBAL SPOTIFY charts.
Added WARNER MUSIC GROUP EVP Global Marketing and A&R Dance Music BART COOLS: “It is amazing to see DAVID add his name to the very select '2 billion streams' club. He is the first DJ to reach this milestone which is an amazing achievement but looking at how dance is exploding at the moment as a genre, I hope he will be followed by others very soon. A big thank you to SPOTIFY for working with us to make all this happen, and massive thanks to DAVID, who keeps making amazing music that people love!“
SPOTIFY Dir./Label Relations WILL HOPE commented: “DAVID GUETTA is obviously one of the most popular artists on SPOTIFY globally, so him smashing the two billion plays milestone should come as no surprise. But it is worth also noting that he achieved this landmark thanks to his huge fan base of over 15 million fans on SPOTIFY, who listen to his music every month, and who together helped him hit this landmark in record time.”
