At 24, Avicii’s future looks bright! He is the first artist to cross the one billion streams threshold, and his song ‘Wake Me Up’  became Spotify’s most played track, with more than 240 million streams globally! That’s insane!


According to USA Today, the streaming service factored chart hits, volume and growth of streams and shares to compile its ranking. Rounding out the Top 5  were Lorde, Miley Cyrus, One Direction and Taylor Swift, respectively.
