Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky’ hits a billion streams on Spotify

'Get Lucky', the 2013 hit from Daft Punk, Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers, has struck the one billion stream landmark on Spotify.

It's both Rodgers and Daft Punk's first time hitting the milestone. The single appeared on the French duo's fourth and final album, 2013's 'Random Access Memories'. It's the third time Williams has reached this many streams on a track, following 2014 smash-hit 'Happy,' and his guest spot on Calvin Harris's 'Feels'.

In July, Rihanna became the first female artist to have 10 songs reach one billion streams each on Spotify. 

To mark ten years since the release of 'Random Access Memories,' in October Daft Punk — who split in 2021 — shared footage of the first time Williams heard his 'Get Lucky' and 'Lose Yourself to Dance' contributions.

Meanwhile, earlier this month the pair peeled back the curtain on the making of 'Infinity Repeating', their previously unreleased 2013 demo with Julian Casablancas + The Voidz.

The video is the third of its kind that offers fans a behind-the-scenes peek, with a five-part documentary about the 'Random Access Memories' collaborators surfacing in June, followed by the aforementioned 'Memory Tapes' series in July.

Daft Punk recently released a drumless version of 'Random Access Memories'.
