Future has reached the bar despite having not updated his account for 13 months. His most streamed song on the platform is “Trap N*ggas,” which has 96.5 million spins.
“THANK U,” the rapper wrote on his Instagram stories while celebrating the news.
“I feel like I get acknowledged,” Future recently told XXL in an interview while acknowledging the respect he gets in the game. “I am still achieving goals that I have set for myself. And if they give me too much credit now, it ain't gonna be fair 'cause I am constantly finding ways to evolve and I feel like sometimes you can speak too soon and I don't want nobody to speak too soon and then curse me. So, just let me work. I understand and I recognize it, but at the end of the day, I am still achieving certain goals that I set out for myself and that's how I look at it.”
He added, “I can see the impact, but I don't really dwell on it. Other people might say more about it than me. Like I said, man, [you] always want to create, want to give your audience and your fans a body of music where they can create and they can build ideas from and they can live their life and they can go to using this album for an example for bettering they album or bettering they lifestyle. Whatever it may be. Whatever you get from it.”
