Thanks to his recently released “Die For You (Remix)” with Ariana Grande, he recently joined Michael Jackson as the only artist with multiple No. 1 songs from three of his albums.




The 2020 track “Blinding Lights” is also the most streamed song on Spotify and the longest charting song on the Billboard Hot 100 of all time, spending 90 weeks on the chart.
