The achievements of artists have always been celebrated with awards. However, as consumers change their listening habits and focus on platforms like Spotify (one of the largest music streaming services in the world), the accolades are also evolving.
In that sense, ‘Billions club’ is the name of the new playlist that this music platform has created for its loyal users, who will now be able to enjoy an exclusive selection of artists whose songs have exceeded one billion reproductions.
Among the dozens of artists that make up this new playlist, there are a couple of Colombian singers who achieved this great milestone with their most iconic songs: J Balvin with ‘Mi gente’ and Karol G with ‘Tusa’.
On this Spotify list there are 132 other songs like ‘I Like it’ by Cardy B with Bad Bunny and J Balvin, ‘Despacito’ by Luis Fonsi, ‘Me rehúso’ by Danny Ocean and ‘Taki Taki’ by Ozuna.
In addition, the North American company decided to compile through a video the moment in which several of these artists have received their plates and how they have celebrated after having reached one billion views on one of the most popular streaming platforms in the world.
It is worth mentioning that the music played through Spotify not only records a number of listens, but also generates a penny for each of the musicians whose songs are played. Although this income is only achieved after having achieved a large number of hours of playback that only artists like Ed Sheeran, Alan Walker, Post Malone and others, can have.
This was revealed by the study of S Money, a digital solutions company that crossed the data of the number of reproductions per songs of Spotify and Kworb, a music data company, in order to know which songs have raised the most money. through the streaming platform and thus recognize which are the 20 with the best earnings figures.
Colombia, of course, was not left without its respective representation in this ranking of artists and the musical group ‘Piso 21 ′, in position number 11, managed to position their song’ Let it come back ‘as one of the most successful on the market , since it generated an income of more than 2.6 million dollars after being listened to more than 545 thousand times.
The first place was occupied by Ed Sheeran, with his song ‘Shape of you’, which has 2.9 million reproductions and with which he generated earnings of 13.3 million dollars. Second was ‘Rockstar’ by Post Malone, the artist who recorded 2,124 million streams and $ 10.4 million. While the third position is occupied by ‘Dance monkey’, by Tones And I, which in Australia moved about 10.2 million dollars with 2,101 million reproductions.
S Money was clear in noting that said study focused on examining the local artist with the highest reproductions of their songs country by country, which does not necessarily mean that they are the most popular artist in the region.
To take this experience to the maximum, it is worth reviewing the proposals submitted by firms such as Misik, a company that in its portfolio has various exclusive proposals that are committed to functionality and design.
This phenomenon is replicated in an important part of the world, where the brand with the three green stripes dominates without a doubt and although this is not new, perhaps it may be to recognize which are the songs and productions that stand out in the immense world that exists. behind Spotify.
At present, it is estimated that there are more than 70 million songs on Spotify; however only some have managed to transcend.
