Singer now in the Spotify billionaires club
Britney Spears finally breaks the magic mark of one billion streams on Spotify – with an ancient hit from 2003.
The past few years have not always been easy for me Britney Spears (41). After her scandalous crash in 2007 and a long phase in which it was more about fighting addiction and guardianship processes than about musical ambitions, it took her a while to work her way back up to the top with new projects. She should be all the happier that she became a member of the “Billions Club” on the streaming platform Spotify overnight with one of her songs.
“Toxic” breaks the magic billion mark
With her mega hit “Toxic” from her fourth studio album “In the Zone” from 2003, she broke the Spotify mark of one billion streams for a single song over the weekend. Apparently, this jump was made possible primarily by a collaboration with the American rapper and music producer Will.i.am (48), with whom she met a few days ago the song “Mind Your Business” brought out.
In line with Abba and Whitney Houston
The new addition to the “Billionaires’ Club” is positioned alongside timeless mega hits such as Abba’s “Dancing Queen” (1976), Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” (1987) (1963-2012) and Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” (1991). If the current comeback hype about her person continues, she could also make it into the club of streaming heroines with another hit: Her iconic song “Baby One More Time” (1998) is currently almost 655 million streams – and the trend is upwards.
