PAPA ROACH have proudly joined Spotify’s illustrious “Billions Club” thanks to their timeless hit, “Last Resort”
The “Billions Club” is a playlist introduced by Spotify in 2020, gathering all the songs that have crossed the remarkable threshold of one billion streams on the platform. As a token of recognition, Spotify awards artists with the prestigious Billions Club plaque.
PAPA ROACH now stands shoulder to shoulder with a select group of artists, including iconic names like METALLICA‘s “Nothing Else Matters,” SURVIVOR‘s “Eye Of The Tiger,” ABBA‘s “Dancing Queen,” and Whitney Houston‘s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody,” who have also achieved this remarkable feat. It’s worth noting that this milestone has been reached by nearly 500 tracks to date.
“Last Resort” initially made its debut on PAPA ROACH‘s breakthrough album, “Infest,” which celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2020. This album soared to No. 5 on the Billboard 200 chart and secured a triple platinum certification from the RIAA (Recording Industry Association Of America) for exceeding three million copies sold in the U.S. alone. “Infest” featured other fan-favorite tracks like “Broken Home,” “Blood Brothers,” and “Between Angels & Insects.”
PAPA ROACH continues to make their mark with their latest album, “Ego Trip,” which hit the airwaves in April 2022 through New Noize Records in collaboration with ADA Worldwide, WMG‘s independent label and artist services arm. This latest accomplishment in the “Billions Club” is a testament to the enduring appeal of their music.
