Katy Perry’s “Smile” Has Surpassed 1 Billion Streams On Spotify; Joining Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus’ Iconic Feat


Recommended Posts


Katy Perry has a good week. Right after the news of her worth of a million(s) investment with the streaming platform, Audius, her fifth studio album, Smile, has finally reached the 1 billion mark of streams on Spotify, making all of her albums to have more than a billion streams each.

With this, Perry now joins Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus as the only female artists to spawn albums with 1 billion streams in 3 different decades. Notably, Teenage Dream has become the 13th album with the most weeks charted by a female act in UK, completing its 198th week. The sophomore album has re-entered and had its 250th week on Billboard Chart 200 as well.

The 2019 sleeper hit, Harleys In Hawaii, also saw an overwhelming streaming gain as it becomes Perry’s most popular song on Spotify currently, beating her smash hits like Dark Horse, Roar, Firework and Never Really Over.

as I said days ago she partnered with somebody and launched her own spotify so she could inflate sales and streams just like beyonce

there it is


I'm assuming that this is just a joke because the OP specifically mentions that those 1 billion streams are from Spotify; why would hypothetical false numbers from Katy's new streaming service boost her Spotify numbers? :xcuseme_mad_say_what_hmm_confused:

I can't believe you have me defending my mortal enemy Katy Perry. :airpls_gaga_wheeze_eyes_wide_breathe_lady_lmao_lol_haha_hehe_omg_surprised_shocked: On the bright side, Billboard always investigates inflated numbers and discrepancies anyway, unless you're BTS of course. :gagasmile_smirk_lady_pink:

I find it difficult to believe an album that completely flopped has been streamed a billion times but good for her I guess :awks_britney_side_eye_awkward_2011_ff_femme_Fatale:

It didn't sell well, but it's still an incredibly bright pop album with strong lyrics. It definitely has EP vibes, but I'm happy she released the album and found it healing for her.
