Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” Achieves Billion-Stream Milestone on Spotify

Daft Punk, Pharrell Williams, and Nile Rodgers have etched their names in streaming history as their iconic hit “Get Lucky” joins Spotify’s exclusive billion-stream club. Released just over a decade ago as the lead single from Daft Punk’s final album, Random Access Memories, the track has become their first song to achieve this milestone as the primary artist.

The feat comes after Daft Punk’s collaborations with The Weeknd on “Starboy” and “I Feel It Coming,” making “Get Lucky” a historic achievement for the French electronic duo. Pharrell Williams, already a member of Spotify’s billion-stream club with hits like “Happy” and features on tracks like Calvin Harris’ “Feels,” adds another remarkable achievement to his repertoire. For Nile Rodgers, the disco legend, “Get Lucky” marks his debut in the billion-stream club.

As of December 2023, Spotify boasts a list of over 500 songs that have surpassed one billion streams. “Get Lucky” takes listeners on a nostalgic journey, reminiscent of roller rinks and the disco era, encapsulating the essence of Daft Punk’s musical legacy.

The achievement solidifies Daft Punk’s enduring impact on the electronic music scene and reaffirms the timeless appeal of “Get Lucky,” which continues to resonate with audiences worldwide.
