It wasn’t that long ago that we were impressed by any song that received 100 million views or streams, but in the age of streaming that number is ancient history. These days, a billion streams is well within reach for a hit, and more and more songs are even hitting the once unthinkable 2 billion mark.
Think about that for a second – 2 billion (with a “B”) streams. That’s a 2 with 9 zeros behind it, or 2,000,000,000.
