Clean Bandit join four other huge bands to obtain a billion steams on FOUR of their songs

Clean Bandit have become the fifth band in history to achieve a billion streams on four of their songs on Spotify.

The electronic music band – which consists of Grace Chatto, Jack Patterson and Luke Patterson – have just seen their 2018 chart-topper ‘Solo’ pass the milestone on the streaming giant and are now in an exclusive club with pop megastars One Direction, rockers Coldplay, the Arctic Monkeys and Queen, all of whom have four or more tracks to have been played more than one billion times.

The band’s other three hits to have surpassed one billion streams are ‘Rather Be’, ‘Rockabye’, and ‘Symphony’, and the band are now thrilled that their Demi Lovato collaboration has achieved the same feat.

In a video posted to Instagram, each member of the band is seen posing with each plaque from Spotify acknowledging the record.

They captioned the post: “Had to celebrate greek-style for this one: our FOURTH Billion plaque from @spotify just arrived !! For Solo with Demi Lovato @ddlovato”

The band have not released an album since ‘What Is Love?’ in 2018 but also used their celebratory post to tease that more is on the way.

They concluded the post: “New music soon”

The five Queen tracks to have surpassed one billion include ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, ‘Don’t Stop Me Now’, ‘Another One Bites the Dust’, ‘Under Pressure and ‘We Will Rock You’, whilst the Artic Monkeys have ‘I Wanna Be Yours’, ‘505’, ‘Do I Wanna Know?’ ‘Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?’ and ‘R U Mine’ on the list.

For boy band One Direction, their first hit to pass more than one billion streams was ‘Night Changes’ but it was quickly joined by ‘Story of My Life’, ‘What Makes You Beautiful’ and ‘Drag Me Down’.

With a record of eight tracks streaming more than one billion times is Coldplay, who boast ‘Adventure Of A Lifetime’, ‘Paradise’, ‘My Universe’, ‘Hymn For The Weekend (feat. Beyonce)’, ‘A Sky Full Of Stars’, ‘Fix You’, ‘The Scientist’, ‘Viva La Vida’, ‘Yellow’ and ‘Something Just Like This (feat. The Chainsmokers)’ on the list.

Only 568 songs have ever made it into Spotify’s Billions Club, with the likes of Taylor Swift’s ‘Cruel Summer’, Spice Girls classic ‘Wannabe’ and Miley Cyrus hit ‘Flowers’ all on the playlist.

The most streamed song of all time is ‘Blinding Lights’ by the Weeknd, which has been streamed just over four billion times.
