Quite possibly the most well known name in Western dance music, Calvin Harris is no stranger to breaking records and setting the bar high year round. Whether it be with huge club residency pay checks, pulling massive festival audiences or hoarding notable awards, Harris’s name has almost become synonymous with dance music success.
Well today marks another milestone for the British sensation. Calvin Harris’ array of songs have officially been played on Spotify over one billion times, equaling about 5000 years of continuous Calvin-ey goodness, or 3 plays for every single person in the United States. This feat makes Harris the first British artist to hit this milestone and the flagship record of the streaming total was his recent smash hit “Summer”, which received over 160 million streams alone. To celebrate, Calvin Harris will be the host of an official Spotify Playlist Takeover tomorrow, September 9th at 3 PM ET. Make sure to not miss out and tune in!
