David Bowie Passes One Billion Streams on Spotify

David Bowie’s music finally crested over the one billion mark on Spotify–which sounds grand until you realize that it took “Despacito” less than six months to pass three billion views on YouTube. Then again, given how so few rock fans (especially fans of older rock) have jumped into streaming, this milestone is worth mentioning.

The most-streamed Bowie songs are:

“Heroes”
Let’s Dance
Space Oddity
Life On Mars
Starman
Rebel Rebel
Moonage Daydream
Changes
Ziggy Stardust
Modern Love
