According to TMZ, 11-year-old Mason Ramsey—otherwise known as the Walmart Yodeling Boy—reportedly accumulated an impressive 2.13 million streams on Spotify over the weekend with his single, "Famous," which dropped on Friday. This has reportedly made it the most-streamed country song on Spotify in the world.
That's around 700,000 a day for Mason Ramsey's debut. For context, Drake's "God's Plan" holds the U.S. record for single-day streams on Spotify with 4.3 million streams. J. Cole’s “KOD” tails closely behind with 4.2 million single-day Spotify streams, while Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do” into third place with 3.8 million.
"Famous" is just a fraction of those numbers, but it's not bad for an 11-year-old child who essentially started his career this year.
In addition to Ramsey’s impressive numbers, streams of Hank Williams’ “Lovesick Blues” have also gone up by 2,000 percent. If you recall, this was the song that the 11-year-old phenom yodeled at Walmart in April. If that weren’t enough, "Famous" sat in the Top 10 of the U.S. iTunes store's Top Songs on Tuesday. Who knew yodeling could take it this far?
