After almost two years since release, DJ Snake’s big hit ‘Taki Taki‘ just reached the 1 billion plays milestone on Spotify.
The slinky bilingual track has all the elements for success, with a huge collab list of Cardi B, Selena Gomez, and Ozuna. ‘Taki Taki’ has been rocking charts worldwide since 2018. In addition, the official video reached 1 billion views on Youtube back in February 2019, only 4 months after its release.
This is the third time the French DJ has reached over a billion plays on his tracks. ‘Lean On’, one of his biggest collaborations with Major Lazer was his first track to reach that milestone. But before it did, it became Spotify’s most played track of all time, only eight months after release in March 2015. Today, ‘Lean On’ is the platform’s 18th most streamed track of all time, sitting at 1.359 billion Spotify plays.
DJ Snake hit the 1 billion mark once again in October 2018 with his collaboration with Justin Bieber, ‘Let Me Love You’, making the French DJ the fifth artist to ever hit the billion stream mark twice.
With ‘Taki Taki’, DJ Snake joins the very exclusive list of artists with 3 tracks having more than 1 Billion plays. The list includes:
- The Chainsmokers (‘Closer’, ‘Something Just Like This’, ‘Don’t Let Me Down’)
- Drake (‘One Dance’, ‘God’s Plan’, ‘In My Feelings’)
- Imagine Dragons (‘Believer’, ‘Thunder’, ‘Radioactive’)
In addition, Ed Sheeran, Justin Bieber, Post Malone, and The Weeknd all have more than three tracks with a billion plays each.
