Dan + Shay have joined the Spotify Billionaires Club with their “10,000 Hours” collaboration with Justin Bieber — meaning, “10,000 Hours” was one of the rare songs from a country artist or group that has hit 1 billion streams on the streaming platform. The collaboration was written by Dan Smyers, Shay Mooney, Bieber, Jordan Reynolds, Jason Boyd and Jessie Jo Dillon.

Dan Smyers shared in a statement. “A billion is a difficult number to comprehend in general, but to know that one song has been streamed over a billion times on a single platform is just incredible,” he said. Then, he added, “We’re grateful for everyone who had a hand in creating ’10,000 Hours’ and everyone who took the time to listen. Here’s to a billion more!”

In the decade since the country duo teamed up, they’ve earned more than 11 billion career streams globally, multiple international No. 1 singles and 49 Platinum and Gold certifications in the U.S. alone.
