Major lazer’s lean on hit a record one billion youtube views. That’s the latest accomplishment for Major Lazer and DJ Snake, whose single “Lean On,” is still breaking records in 2016. The unexpected hit captivated the entire music industry.
But even though “Lean On” was adored by the public, the song was shut out of the Grammy‘s this year, save for a footnote in Diplo’s nomination in the Best Producer categor.
“Lean On” may never get the award it so rightfully deserves, Major Lazer, DJ Snake, and MØ can boast a record-setting one Billion YouTube plays and 600 million Spotify streams.
“Lean On” is now the 16th most viewed video of all time on YouTube, and the only EDM track ever to hit one billion views. And according to Diplo in his post below, the whole thing only took 24 hours to shoot. Incredible!
