J Balvin Is the Most Streamed Artist Worldwide on Spotify, Replacing Drake
His recent single 'X' with Nicky Jam has already been streamed more than 327 million times.
J Balvin has two reasons to celebrate. First he celebrates the victory of the Colombian team on Sunday’s (June 24) game against Poland, and today he has a bigger reason: J Balvin is the most streamed artist worldwide on Spotify. The digital platform made the official announcement on Monday morning (June 25).
The 33-year-old singer reached the milestone after surpassing the mark of 48 million monthly listeners, overtaking Drake for the worldwide No. 1 spot. Last summer, Balvin's single "Mi Gente" was the first Latin song sung completely in Spanish to make it to No. 1 on Spotify's Global Top 50 Chart.
According to Spotify, Latin music listening increased by 110% in 2017.
“The world is for those of us who dream big," Balvin said in a video posted on his social media platforms. Check out his Instagram below.
