“One Dance” By Drake, Wizkid And Kyla Crosses 3 Billion Spotify Streams

Drake, the legendary Canadian hip-hop artist, celebrated the incredible achievement of his hit song, “One Dance,” reaching three billion streams globally on social media.

The record-breaking accomplishment is evidence of the song’s lasting appeal and the influence of its featured musicians, Nigerian music icon Wizkid, on a global scale. “One Dance,” which was released in May 2016, quickly rose to fame by fusing Dancehall, Afrobeats, and Pop components into a cohesive musical experience.

With Wizkid’s distinctive vocals and a sample of Kyla’s 2008 hit song Do You Mind, the tune turned out to be a game-changer for both Drake and Wizkid. Drake shared a touching homage on his Instagram Story, featuring a snapshot of a close buddy congratulating him on his latest accomplishment, to honor Wizkid’s crucial role in the song’s popularity.

He thanked Wizkid on his Instagram story for being a key contributor to the project’s success. He also gave props to his in-house producer and business partner, OVO40.
