Australian producer Flume celebrated his second-favourite ring yesterday, accepting a circular trophy in honour of Never Be Like You passing one billion streams.
Presented by music industry body APRA AMCOS, the trophy recognises Flume plus co-writer and vocalist Kai for their success across Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, and everywhere else that isn’t the radio, a CD, or vinyl.
Speaking at the Manly Beach event, the artist born Harley Streten said “We’re lucky to have such a supportive local industry and it’s so great seeing Australian songs continue to do well overseas.”
The trophy represents an achievement only two other Aussies have accomplished: songwriter Nat Dunn’s work on Marshmello & Anne-Marie‘s Friends was recognised in June, and Dean Lewis copped the honour in July for Be Alright.
It may have even been played during his infamous Burning Man set, but there’s no trophy for that kind of thing. Yet.
