Calvin Harris has become the most streamed British solo act of all time on Spotify as Calvin Harris is now celebrating his one billionth play.
The news of this accomplishment comes shortly after landing the top spot on the Forbes DJ Rich list of 2014.
Judging by Spotify's announced per-stream royalty of $0.007 that means that Calvin Harris has generated around $7 million on Spotify in total. Unfortunately for Calvin, not all of this money has landed in his pocket as an undisclosed amount has gone to his record label, Columbia.
“This is a landmark achievement for Calvin and deserved recognition that he is in the elite tier of global artists,” said Mark Terry (Co-President of Columbia Records UK). “His recent level of success has been extraordinary and something that all of us here at Columbia are very proud to be part of.”
To celebrate his billion streams, Calvin Harris will be hosting a Spotify Playlist Takeover on Tuesday September 9th.
