DJ and producer Kygo is the fastest artist to accrue 1 billion streams on Spotify. It took the Norwegian native a little over a year to rack up these numbers, as the “tropical house” genre of music is slowly gaining traction and recognition. His tracks “Firestone” and “Stole the Show” each have 300 million listens, and as for his latest track titled “Stay,” that has 15 million. The rest comes from curated playlists generated by the service. Kygo made a statement about the landmark achievement:

“Reaching this milestone in such a short period of time is really incredible and I’d like to say thank you to each and every person who streamed one of my songs this past year. I’m so happy people have enjoyed listening to my tracks and I can’t wait to share my album with you all early next year.”
