Calum Scott’s version of “Dancing on my Own” hits 1 billion streams
It’s no secret that Calum Scott’s rendition of “Dancing on my Own” has had the biggest year of its existence, especially in Philly. That was proven even further when Scott announced the track officially passed 1 billion streams on Spotify.
Calum Scott posted a message of thanks on Twitter after “Dancing on my Own” reached the milestone:
Scott continued the thread with a few heartwarming messages, extending thanks and appreciation to his family, fans, and, of course Swedish singer-songwriter Robyn. However, I noticed a name missing from the list of acknowledgements: The City of Philadelphia.
Dancing on my Own was my most-played song of 2022, and I didn’t even have it in my library until October of that same year. Just look at our poor Luke’s Spotify Wrapped, the kid played the damn song over 100 times in less than 30 days. Talk about heavy lifting.
Did he thank us when he hit 1 billion streams at the end of 2022? Yes, he did. But what has he done for us lately?
All I’m saying is, I think a free concert in Philadelphia would be the least he could do. He said he wanted to sing at a World Series parade if the Phillies won, what’s stopping him from setting up on Broad Street anyway? (other than city ordinances and other regulations)
