Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" Hits Two Billion Spotify Streams

Is this the real life?

Fifty-something years on from their formation in London, Queen are celebrating the multi-billion stream-status of their A Night at the Opera lead single "Bohemian Rhapsody."

Arguably their most well-known hit — they even named the biopic after it — the track has freshly hit two billion streams on Spotify this week.

This comes after the single was added to the National Recording Registry by the US Library of Congress for its cultural significance just this year, in addition to being declared the "most streamed song of the century" in 2018, having its music video surpass one billion views on YouTube back in 2019 and being performed by Canada's own Justin Trudeau (even if the context was a tad inappropriate).

The song joins the ranks of Drake's "One Dance" and "God's Plan," Harry Styles's "Watermelong Sugar," Glass Animals' "Heat Waves," and many more among the 2 Billions Club on Spotify.
