The days of Metallica avoiding online streaming are long gone. And Spotify can prove it. Metallica’s songs were streamed over a billion times on Spotify in 2020. 1.1 billion times to be exact.
This is the second year in a row the band has reached such big numbers. Taking to social media with the news, Metallica posted, “We thought last year’s numbers were insane… you guys have outdone yourselves! 99.3M hours?! That’s like if someone started listening on October 27, 9318 B.C. and never stopped.”
