Tate McRae's "Greedy" has hit a new milestone. The Alberta singer's smash single surpassed a billion plays on Spotify, making it McRae's second song to do so, following her 2020 hit "You Broke Me First."

"Broke Me" might have broken that personal record first, but "Greedy" is McRae's biggest single to date, hitting No. 1 on the Billboard Canadian Hot 100 and the Global 200. The song was also her first American top ten hit, where it reached No. 3 on the Hot 100.


McRae celebrated her "Greedy" achievement with a cake and an Instagram post. "Feeling so blessed and so grateful," the popstar shared.

"Greedy" joins a host of other Canadian hits on Spotify's Billions Club playlist, including Drake’s "One Dance," The Weeknd’s "Blinding Lights," and 15 Justin Bieber tracks. Nelly Furtado, an inspiration for McRae's Think Later sound, is also part of the club with "Promiscuous."

The milestone caps off a big month for McRae, who won artist of the year and single of the year, for "Greedy," at the 2024 Juno Awards, though she didn't attend. McRae had been nominated for nine awards in previous years, but this year marks her first Juno wins, following a breakthrough year in 2023 and the chart success of her sophomore album Think Later.

McRae heads out on her Think Later World Tour this month. She'll come to Canada this summer, for a homecoming performance at Calgary's Cowboys Music Festival on July 5, followed by a Toronto date at Budweiser Stage on July 27.
