David Guetta says that Spotify revealed him to be the most streamed artist in its 15-year history.
In the nascent years of the EDM boom, David Guetta was everywhere. Collaborations with the likes of the Black Eyed Peas and Rihanna made him a household name not only in dance music, but the worlds of pop and hip-hop. Apparently, he’s still going strong. The “Titanium” hitmaker has shared that Spotify declared him the most-streamed artist in its 15 years of operations.
This comes after Guetta was revealed to be the 4th most-streamed Spotify artist of all time in July. “Spotify is 15 years old, so happy anniversary,” he said in a recent Instagram post. “They just told me that I’m the most played, most streamed French artist in 15 years. This is pretty incredible. Thank you so much to everyone for the support, for the love. We’re only beginning!”
David Guetta’s career extends all the way back to when he heard a house track by Farley “Jackmaster” Funk on the radio in 1987. He began hosting his own club nights, and 1990 marked his recording debut a he released a hip-house collaboration titled “Nation Rap” alongside emcee Sidney Duteil.
The next 15 years brought increasingly successful releases for Guetta. His 1994 single “Up & Away” saw modest success in clubs, and his 2022 debut album, Just a Little More Love, sold 300,000 copies. His 2004 album Guetta Blaster included notable features like Chris Willis and JD Davis.
David Guetta’s 2009 album One Life marked the turning point in which music fans in every continent became aware of him. With singles like “Sexy Bitch” featuring Akon, “When Love Takes Over” featuring Kelly Rowland, and “Memories” featuring Kid Kudi, it coincided not only with the introduction of Spotify but the rapidly unfolding EDM explosion in North America.
