Spotify has a surprising all-time number one

Last month, music-streaming app Spotify released a peculiar number one song in the form of ‘Lean On’, which was performed by Major Lazer.

What makes the song’s feat amazing is that the global phenomenon had not only surpassed Ed Sheeran's ‘Thinking Out Loud’ to be the “most streamed song” last month on Spotify, but its speed in accumulating hits in just a short time was nothing short of astounding.

19 year old Dutch DJ Martin Garrix was the closing act of this year's Sziget Festival. He was so much caught up in the Sziget feeling that after concluding with the End Show, he refused to accept that it was over.
