As known Beatles fans, I think you’ll like this fun fact! This week, The Beatles achieved another milestone in their long career: they’ve joined the billions club on Spotify, meaning that one of their songs has been streamed over one billion times!
Here Comes the Sun has surpassed a billion streams on the streaming platform, which may not seem like a lot to you for such an iconic, well-known group, but this is an achievement only 406 tracks have reached on Spotify. Plus, their music wasn’t uploaded to Spotify until 2015, so in less than a decade, they’ve reached this milestone!
If you want to see that number rise even more, check out the song on Spotify, or, hear it here on Easy 99.1!
