Guinness World Records reported Monday that The Weeknd, who recently became the first artist to hit 100 million monthly listeners on Spotify, is statistically the most popular musician in the world.

According to Guinness World Records, no one can match the singer’s streaming success, obviously seen in how the 33-year-old singer has set two world records for music streaming: he has the most monthly listeners on Spotify and is the first artist to hit 100 million monthly listeners on Spotify.

Spotify itself also noted the milestone last month, tweeting, “It’s official: On February 27, The Weeknd became the first artist in Spotify History to reach 100 Million monthly listeners.”

The recent spike in streams was partially fueled by the success of the “Die For You” remix starring Ariana Grande, which went viral on TikTok.

The remixed track, whose original version was released in 2016, also peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in early March.

It is the seventh number one for Grande and The Weeknd, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye. It was the second time The Weeknd and Grande collaborated for a remix that reached #1 after the 2021 remix of “Save Your Tears” topped the charts according to Billboard.

The Weeknd’s 2020 track “Blinding Lights” is the most-streamed track of all time according to music streaming platform Spotify, with more than 3.47 billion listeners as of Monday. His song “Starboy” is also one of the most listened-to songs of all time on Spotify.

The Weeknd is no stranger to the Guinness World Records Award. In 2016, he received two certifications: one for Spotify’s most-streamed album of 2015 and another for consecutive weeks in the top 10 on Billboard’s Hot 100 by a solo male artist.
