The Weeknd is the No. 1 Artist in the World on Spotify
The Weeknd has become the first artist to reach 100 million monthly listeners on Spotify. As of today, he scored the biggest monthly listener count in history on the platform with 100.4 million. This enshrines him as the No. 1 artist in the world on Spotify.
Meanwhile, his mega-smash “Blinding Lights” remains the DSP’s “most streamed song of all time” with 3.4 billion streams and counting.
The Weeknd’s recent Remix of “Die For You” with Ariana Grande also continues to amass numbers with 23.2 million Spotify streams in under a week. The collaboration landed in the wake of the single’s staggering resurgence where it has completed the longest climb to No. 1 in US radio history. The track has also claimed No. 1 on the Billboard Radio Songs Chart for two weeks and has been on the Billboard Hot 100 for all of 2023, recently vaulting into the Top 10 and serving as his 16th Top 10 entry on the respective chart. The record also broke into the Top 20 of the Billboard Global 200, scoring him his 15th Top 20.
The Weeknd’s anticipated Live at SoFi Stadium special premiered on HBO (watch below) last weekend on Saturday (Feb. 25). He is also set to star in his new television show, “The Idol”, on HBO (date tba).
