Journey: Don’t Stop Believin’ tops 1 billion Spotify streams

Journey’s 1981 classic, “Don’t Stop Believin’”, has passed 1 billion streams on Spotify.

"Wow!!! Thank you Fans!!,” shared guitarist Neal Schon on social media. “We are over 1 Billion streams on Spotify - Don’t Stop Believin'. Queen is the ONLY other band at this point. Congratulations guys."

The second single from “Escape” was a US Top 10 hit and went on to become the group’s signature song worldwide.

Written by Schon, Steve Perry and Jonathan Cain, “Don’t Stop Believin’” was recently among the songs named for induction into the 2021 Grammy Hall Of Fame, which recognizes a range of both single and album recordings at least 25 years old that exhibit qualitative or historical significance.

Journey singer Arnel Pineda recently confirmed that the band are working on new music during the pandemic; the project will be the first with new additions Randy Jackson on bass, Nara Michael Walden on drums and keyboardist/vocalist Jason Derlatka.
