Loud Luxury & Brando's Hit Song 'Body' Surpasses 1 Billion Streams On Spotify

Loud Luxury & Brando

It's hard to believe it's been over five years since Canadian duo Loud Luxury made their Armada Music debut with their smash hit "Body" featuring singer-songwriter Brando. The song's journey has been nothing short of a whirlwind, and it seems like the ride is far from over. "Body" has officially surpassed one billion streams on Spotify, a feat that only a handful of songs have accomplished and a first for Loud Luxury, Brando, and Armada Music.

Loud Luxury shared their disbelief at the news, saying, "We're speechless." The duo skyrocketed to fame after "Body" took off, and the track's accomplishments are nothing to sneeze at. Within a year, it became Gold-certified in the US, reached Diamond status in Canada, hit #4 on the UK Singles chart, and climbed to #1 on the UK Dance chart.

"Never did we expect a song with such humble beginnings to make its way to a billion streams," they continued. "A HUGE thank you to everyone involved in getting it where it is. Looking forward to celebrating by eating our favorite Canadian dish – poutine out of the plaque – very soon!"

For Brando, the American singer-songwriter discovered by Loud Luxury when he performed ahead of a different act's showcase in Hollywood, it's been quite the ride as well. "It is such a humbling experience watching 'Body' grow from a simple idea dreamt up in a bedroom years ago into something this impactful on the electronic music landscape," he said. "I am grateful to Andrew, Joe, and everyone at Armada Music for believing in this record the way I did from the beginning. A huge thank you to all our fans and listeners for getting 'Body' to one billion streams!"

And for Armada Music, the globally renowned dance music label that's been home to both acts' musical output since the release of "Body," it's also the first time one of its releases surpassed 1,000,000,000 streams on Spotify. "This is an incredible milestone for Loud Luxury, Brando, and Armada Music, and one the whole team is incredibly proud of," said Maykel Piron, CEO of Armada Music. "It is a testament to the strong relationship we have with them and the unwavering belief everyone had in the record. We look forward to celebrating together in style very soon!"

"Body" has become a global sensation and a staple of the electronic music scene. Its infectious beat and catchy lyrics have taken the world by storm, and it will continue to do so for years to come. Congratulations to Loud Luxury, Brando, and Armada Music on this incredible achievement!

About Brando

Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Brando was a major force behind Canadian duo Loud Luxury's multi-platinum-selling, billion-streams hit song 'Body' and Don Diablo's 'Congratulations' (more than 50 million streams on Spotify), the latter of which shot up the U.S. Mediabase Dance Chart through a surge of radio plays. His 2020 single, 'Look Into My Eyes,' which reimagines Charles & Eddie's 'Would I Lie To You,' spent ten straight weeks atop Australia's airplay chart, taking the crown for the most-played song of the year from The Weeknd's 'Blinding Lights.' The song even entered the Spotify Top 200 in Australia, Austria, Germany, Sweden, and New Zealand, clocking up over 58 million streams across the most popular streaming platforms.
