Global internet streaming service Spotify claims that Nigeria’s emerging sensation Rema has reached an incredible milestone with his hit song, “Calm Down,” hitting one billion streams on its platform.

This information was released in a statement on Sunday by Victor Okpala, Spotify’s Artiste and Label Partnerships Manager for West Africa.

Rema was among the top 10 most streamed Afrobeats artists on Spotify, he claimed, using data provided as part of the platform’s “Journey to a Billion Streams” programme.

According to Okpala, “Rema has achieved a remarkable milestone with his hit single, Calm Down, featuring Selena Gomez, reaching one billion streams on Spotify. This is the first African artist-led track to join the Billions Club on Spotify.

“The achievement not only highlights Rema’s growing influence in the music industry but also stresses the power of cross-cultural musical fusion in today’s interconnected world.

“Rema, a Nigerian artiste featured an American artiste, Selena Gomez, in a remix that took the world by storm.

Speaking further, he said, “This milestone is absolutely remarkable for Rema, marking a pivotal moment for this talented artiste and the entire Afrobeats community.

“It is clear that the genre is making a significant impact and gaining substantial influence on the global music stage, and we are excited to continue supporting it at Spotify.”

The billion-stream milestone on Spotify, in his opinion, is no small accomplishment because it highlights the success of “Calm Down” and Rema’s talent for making music that connects with listeners from all walks of life.

He went on to say that Rema’s distinctive style had catapulted him to the top of the international music scene, with the song receiving the most streams from the United States, India, Mexico, Brazil, and the United Kingdom.
