Spotify Recognizes Khalid as Youngest Artist to Surpass 15 Billion Streams
ICM Partners is pleased to congratulate Khalid for his latest achievement as the youngest artist to surpass 15 billion streams on Spotify.
“I can’t thank you guys enough for all the love you guys give me! Let’s go!” the 22 year-old award-winning hitmaker wrote to his nearly 8 million followers on Instagram.
The R&B artist first became a household name in 2016 with his hit single Location,which currently has over 890,000,000 streams on the platform. Hundreds of millions of streams is the typical count for a Khalid track, which often include appearances and collaborations with other char-topping names in the music industry.
Khalid’s latest single Eleven features one of R&B’s most recent breakout stars, Summer Walker. Following the news of his astounding achievement by Spotify, Khalid released the Eleven music video, which takes inspiration from the Fast & Furious franchise. The video depicts Khalid behind the wheel of a black BMW, navigating a late night car race through the streets of Los Angeles.
“I love making music you could drive to, and I feel like “Eleven” is the perfect track to play on your stereo, grip the wheel of your car and just go where the wind takes you,” the artist said on Apple Music’s Beats 1. “That’s what this song makes me feel like.”
ICM Partners is proud to support Khalid throughout all of his success.
