Member when 1 million plays or streams was the club to be in? With the ever increasing market share and the inevitable take over that is the streaming community, more and more artists are acquiring the plays necessary to reach the one billion views mark.
Calvin Harris has had quite the month. Not only did he surpass a billion plays on his tune with Rihanna “This is What You Came For” but a second track of his from 2014 titled “Summer” also joined the coveted club. The only other two electronic music productions out of the 36 that have garnered the massive play count are Major Lazer‘s “Lean On,” and “Wake Me Up” by Avicii.
Seemingly with 2016 having such bad connotations tagged to it, Calvin Harris’ past year continued to get better. Setting another first for dance music, his tune “We Found Love” with Rihanna that was released back in 2011, has become the first dance record to receive diamond certification from the RIAA.
