Rack up another milestone for Kygo. Our favorite Norwegian producer has broken another record, this time in the world of streaming. This week, streaming service Spotify announced that Kygo has become the fastest artist to hit one billion streams on Spotify. One billion is enough of an achievement for any artist, but given the way he got there, it deserves a closer look.
Kygo’s first two originals “Firestone” and “Stole the Show” each have 300 million+ streams. The former just celebrated its one-year anniversary earlier this month, while the latter hasn’t even hit the 9-month mark. Added to the other 200,000 streams for his curated playlists and his latest single “Stay” already at 15 million, Kygo’s exponential growth will make this milestone all but unbeatable in the forseeable future.
“Reaching this milestone in such a short period of time is really incredible and I’d like to say thank you to each and every person who streamed one of my songs this past year. I’m so happy people have enjoyed listening to my tracks and I can’t wait to share my album with you all early next year.” – Kygo
