Beaking more than a dozen records, it became the most streamed Afrobeats song on Spotify and the first African artiste-led song to hit one billion streams on the music platform.


In a post by Spotify on X which read, "We can't Calm Down, Rema has entered the Billions Club with the first African artiste-led track to hit a billion streams on Spotify! Congratulations to Rema and Selena Gomez," the global streaming platform took the opportunity to congratulate the pair when the song set the record.
