Calvin Harris lands another video with 1 billion views
Earlier this month, Calvin Harris joined YouTube’s coveted Billion Views Club with the music video for “This Is What You Came For,” becoming only the third EDM song ever to reach such a lofty milestone. The Rihanna-assisted smash joined the same ranks as Major Lazer‘s “Lean On,” and “Wake Me Up” by Avicii. Now, for the second time in under a month, the Scottish hit-maker is breaking back into the billion bracket with 2014’s inescapable “Summer.” The track becomes just the 36th video to ever claim the achievement.
2016 has been an incredibly successful year for Harris, who also received a diamond certification for his first Rihanna collaboration, 2011’s “We Found Love.” The tune was the first piece of dance music to ever receive diamond certification from the RIAA. With the addition of two videos accumulating over a billion views each in the same year, it’s safe to say Calvin Harris still incontestably rules mainstream pop’s intersection with dance music.
1 billion views of the Summer video !! 2nd of the year, thank you
