The new year has just began, and French Montana is already breaking records. According to AuxGod, who tweeted the news on Saturday, the AIN'T WORRIED BOUT NOTHING rapper has gathered more than 40 billion digital spins, making him the most streamed African-born singer.
Montana has several multiplatinum hits, including UNFORGETTABLE featuring Swae Lee, POP THAT with Rick Ross, Drake, and Lil Wayne, J Balvin's AY VAMOS, and Lil Jon's loaded TURN DOWN FOR WHAT, to mention a few. According to Billboard, he has two singles in the top ten of the Hot 100 chart, and he has spent 200 weeks on the chart with 17 different songs since 2012.
The Coke Boys Records founder was born in Morocco, where he also spent some of his childhood years before settling in the United States with his family. He recalls his mother working multiple jobs and still struggling to make ends meet in a previous interview. He said that he “promised my mother that I would hustle and make my accomplishments unforgettable once I found my opportunity.” Needless to say, he has more than delivered on his promise.
When it comes to dominating DSP airplay, Montana is not alone. Drake was crowned Spotify's most streamed artiste in history earlier this month after surpassing 75 billion plays. It's no surprise considering that he's been releasing hit after hit for over a decade. In response to the achievement, he posted in a since-deleted Instagram story: “We should get bonuses like athletes to motivate the future artists to be consistent and competitive. So feel free to send me a LeBron-sized check. I have enough dinner plates.”
When the two platinum-selling artistes weren't busy making new hits, they were working tirelessly on Montana's autobiographical documentary, FOR KHADIJA, named after his mother. Montana revealed that the project is finished but has yet to set a release date during an appearance on the Hotboxin' with Mike Tyson podcast.
