Upon the revelation that his yearly Spotify tally surpassed 6.2 billion streams, his manager and longtime friend Dre London took to Instagram to marvel at the accomplishment. "It’s been an amazing year, we went diamond on a few records, released our 3rd album, toured the world got an award from the AMA’s for album of the year & posty is the #1 most streamed artist on Spotify this year," writes Dre, lowkey flexing on the masses.
