David Guetta has smashed the 2 billion plays milestone on Spotify, making him only the third artist in Spotify history to do so following Eminem and Ed Sheeran. The achievement also makes him both the first EDM artist, and the first French artist, to reach 2 billion listens. David Guetta is currently the most-followed artist on Spotify with 6.8m followers, and boasts more than 15m fans listening on Spotify each month.  

David Guetta said of the achievement: “I want to thank you so much for helping me reach this incredible milestone, 2 billion streams on Spotify! Wow, mind blowing!”

Bart Cools, EVP Global Marketing and A&R Dance Music, Warner Music Group said: “It is amazing to see David add his name to the very select “2 billion streams” club. He is the first DJ to reach this milestone which is an amazing achievement but looking at how dance is exploding at the moment as a genre, I am sure he will be followed by others very soon. A big thank you to Spotify for working with us to make all this happen, and massive thanks to David who keeps making amazing music that people love! “

Will Hope, Spotify’s director of label relations, commented: “David Guetta is obviously one of the most popular artists on Spotify globally, so him smashing the two billion listens milestone should come as no surprise. But it is worth also noting that he achieved this landmark thanks to his huge fan base of over 15 million fans on Spotify who listen to his music every month, and who together helped him hit this landmark in record time.”

David’s most recent single ‘Hey Mama’ feat. Nicki Minaj, Bebe Rexha and long-term collaborator Afrojack  has had 95 million global streams and is currently #6 on the Global Spotify charts. You can listen to the smash hit along with David’s latest influences and club favourites on The David Guetta Selection, updated weekly and an essential listen for dance music lovers.
