Major Lazer and DJ Snake‘s “Lean On” is being recognized as one of the most played tracks in EDM, ever… The exotic dance anthem just became the 4th song to hit 1 billion plays on Spotify, and it’s still racking ’em up (at 1,001,243,565 and counting)!


The single, hailing from Major Lazer’s third studio album Peace is the Mission, completely took over 2015 and much of 2016, quickly becoming an instant classic, and working its way into mainstream play. Not only did the track put pop singer  on the map, it launched Major Lazer and DJ Snake both from electronic producer status to superstar hit-making sensations!

Major Lazer marked the moment with a simple tweet reading: “1,000,000,000.”

While “Lean On” was certainly on pace to be the first member of the music streaming service’s “Billion Play Club,” recent releases like Drake – “One Dance,” The Chainsmokers ft. Halsey – “Closer,” and Ed Sheeran – “Shape of You” gained even more steam early on and hit the mark sooner. Nevertheless, “Lean On” has reached massive worldwide success and also became one of the few tracks to hit 2 billion plays on Youtube.

The song, the lyrics, and the undeniable good vibes play out every bit as well as when it was first released! Play it again!

Blow a kiss, fire a gun
We need someone to lean on
Blow a kiss, fire a gun
All we need is somebody to lean on
