Here are the top stories from yesterday and others that unraveled while you slept – and are now buzzing this morning.
“One Dance” is the most streamed song on Spotify – EVER!
Music streaming app, Spotify has announced that Drake’s hit song One Dance that features Wizkid and Kyla is its most streamed song in its history with 880 million plays.
Last year, Major Lazer, DJ Snake and Mo’s collabo track, Lean On, held that spot with 526 million streams.
The Spotify music platform is not available in Nigerians, so here we are doing the maths and wondering what the aggregate number of streams would have been if Nigerians got to stream the song on the app.
Meanwhile, congratulations Wizkid! You just made history! Again.
