Post Malone breaks the Spotify record for longest No. 1 stretch

The White Iverson, Post Malone, has set a new record for Spotify with his latest hit Rockstar sitting at the top of the charts for the longest ever.

Ed Sheeran may still be the king of Spotify but Post Malone is the latest record breaker for the streaming service. Post’s recent single Rockstar with rapper 21 Savage has no sat at No. 1 on Spotify’s Global chart for 108 days, smashing out any rivals for longest reign at the top.

It’s got a long way to go before it reaches Sheeran level streams, 2 of Sheeran’s singles have over 1 billion streams. In comparison whilst it may be massively popular Rockstar has only been streamed 650 million times though it was only released 4 months ago in September.

Outside of Spotify Rockstar made massive waves as well, spending 8 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart last year. This was a first for both Post Malone and 21 Savage who had never peaked at number one the charts before.

Post broke out in 2015 with his hit single White Iverson which he independently created and released. The internet has been good to Post Malone making him a star with White Iverson and then continuing his meteoric rise with his performance on streaming services. Post is a testament to the changing industry and the potential of the internet for artists.
