Kygo becomes fastest artist to acquire one billion streams on Spotify
One of Spotify’s spotlight artists for 2015, Kygo has added yet another milestone to his resume alongside the Swedish company. After becoming the streaming service’s Breakout Artist of 2015, Spotify also announced that the tropical house producer became the fastest artist to have racked up over a billion plays. Over 300 million streams of “Firestone” and “Stole The Show” make up a large portion of the record-breaking number, with close to 200,000 followers between two of the Norwegian star’s playlists.
Currently signed to Ultra Music, the label’s founder commented on his artist’s recent ascension: “Kygo brings quality musicianship and songs as well as a magnificent feel for melody to Electronic music in an unparalleled way. As one of the most exciting new artists in the world, it comes as no surprise that Kygo is breaking records and barriers across the musical landscape.”
