1bn Spotify plays for Calvin Harris

DJ and chart star Calvin Harris has become the first UK solo act notch up more than one billion plays worldwide on music streaming service Spotify.

He has become one of only a few global music acts to achieve the milestone, and joins the only other Brit artists to do so, Coldplay.

Harris's hit Summer is the most popular track on the service and has now been streamed more than 160 million times. His music has been streamed on Spotify for the equivalent of over 5,000 continuous years.

He is the eighth act to break through the billion barrier and joins the likes of Eminem, Rihanna, David Guetta and Katy Perry.

Mark Terry, the co-president of his label Columbia Records UK, said: "This is a landmark achievement for Calvin and deserved recognition that he is in the elite tier of global artists."

To mark the achievement, he will be hosting a Spotify Playlist Takeover tomorrow at 8pm playing a selection of his favourite tracks.
