Twenty One Pilots' Blurryface Is The Most Streamed Album Ever
Twenty One Pilots' massive fourth album, 2015's Blurryface, is now officially the most streamed album by any group ever. According to Chart Data, the LP surpassed 3.5 billion streams just on Spotify as of July 3rd and is the most popular streaming album by a group.
At press time, the group had nearly 15.6 million monthly listeners. Out of the 14 tracks on Blurryface, "Stressed Out" was the most popular with more than one billion streams, while "Not Today" was the least played with just under 86 million.
Every cut on the album has also been certified gold by the RIAA. In terms of physical sales, Blurryface was certified four times platinum in January of this year for sales of four million copies.
Drummer Josh Dun told us a while back that when he and frontman Tyler Joseph are recording, it's only about the music: "When we're just kind of sitting in a room recording this, it's me, Tyler and one or two other guys, a producer and an engineer, and we kind of just try and, in a way, realize that there are a lot of people who are expecting different things, but really in that moment, it's us in there creating what it is that we ultimately want to be performing for the next however long, and I think that's kind of the biggest thing for us."
Twenty One Pilots are currently touring in support of their latest album, 2018's Trench. The band next heads to Europe but will come home in early August to headline the Lollapalooza and Outside Lands festivals.
