Rema’s Hit Single, ‘Calm Down,’ Joins The 1bn Stream Club on Spotify


Spotify, a world-wide online streaming service, says that Rema, a fast-rising star from Nigeria, has reached a big milestone with his hit song “Calm Down,” which has been played one billion times on Spotify.

In a statement on Sunday, Victor Okpala, who is in charge of artist and label partnerships for Spotify in West Africa, said this:

Okpala says that this shows how talented Rema is and how popular he is around the world.

He said that Spotify’s ‘Journey to a Billion Streams’ project showed that Rema was one of the top 10 most streamed Afrobeats artists on the site.

He didn’t think it was strange that the song had reached this point.

“It’s a big deal that Rema’s hit song “Calm Down,” which features Selena Gomez, has been played one billion times on Spotify. This is the first song by an African act to join Spotify’s Billions Club.

“Rema’s growing influence in the music business is shown by this achievement, which also shows how powerful cross-cultural musical fusion is in today’s globalized world.

“Rema, a Nigerian singer, collaborated with Selena Gomez, an American singer, on a version that blew up all over the world.

“This is a big deal for Rema and a turning point for this skilled musician and the Afrobeats community as a whole.

He said, “It’s clear that the genre is making a big impact and gaining a lot of power on the global music scene, and we’re excited to keep supporting it at Spotify.”

Okpala said that ‘Calm Down’ quickly became a favorite around the world because of its catchy mix of afrobeats rhythms and afro-fusion melodies, Rema’s unique and soulful singing, and Selena Gomez’s surprising appearance on an Afrobeats song.

He said that the song’s production had both modern and traditional parts, which shows how African music is changing and growing.

He says that ‘Calm Down’s one billionth stream on Spotify is a big deal because it shows how famous it is and how well Rema can make music that goes beyond borders and speaks to a wide range of people.

He said that Rema’s unique sound had put him at the top of the world’s music scene, with the most people listening to the song in the US, India, Mexico, Brazil, and the UK.

“The song’s catchy chorus and easy-to-understand words have made it a favorite on dance floors and in personal playlists. Calm Down has been added to over a million Spotify playlists, according to data.

“This moment shows how music has the power to go beyond national and geographical boundaries. It also shows aspiring musicians how to make real, boundary-pushing music that connects with people all over the world.

He said, “With this achievement, Rema solidifies his position as a true musical pioneer and opens the door to an exciting new chapter in his career.”

Rema’s response was, “It’s a gift. It is a big win not only for me, my team, and my family but also for society as a whole.

“I’m very happy, and I’m also very proud of the fans for going back to the song and adding people to it. Thanks to the DJs and everyone else who helped make this happen.”
