    Quick — who are the two most-played artists in Spotify history?

    That’s a really hard question, but if you answered Ed Sheeran and Eminem… you’ve definitely been paying attention to Billboard.com (so thank you). Sheeran and Em were the first two artists to break two billion Spotify streams, and today (June 22), a third artist joined their ranks. It’s David Guetta.

    Guetta’s 2014 album Listen undoubtedly helped the DJ get over the top. Its track “Bad” (featuring Vassy) is responsible for over 200 million of those plays, joining “Titanium” (featuring Sia) as Guetta’s two tracks in the 200 million club.
