SPOTIFY ALL-TIME TOP 10: HOW BIG IS BIG?

We were recently poring over some Spotify streaming stats (readily available on the app to anyone who's curious) and got to wondering: How big do the biggest records get? Chart-toppers like The Kid LAROI's "Stay" (1.5b+ global streams), Glass Animals' "Heat Waves" and Lil Nas X's "MONTERO (Call Me by Your Name)" (both 1.3b+) are clearly enormous. So what are the biggest songs of the streaming era so far? Well, here's a Top 10 list, which shows that you need more than 2b total streams to hit the all-time leaderboard—and well over 3b to wrest the #1 title from Ed Sheeran's mitts.
