The fans have been listening on iHeartRadio and now, some of their favorite artists have reached a new milestone for some of their biggest hits.
iHeartMedia is presenting several artists with the Titanium Award to celebrate reaching a threshold of 1 billion total audience spins across iHeartRadio stations of their hit song in 2021. These superstars and their respective songs include Ariana Grande with "positions," Chris Brown and Young Thug with "Go Crazy," Dua Lipa with "Levitating" and 24kGoldn and Iann Dior with "Mood."
The Total Audience Spins calculation is based on certified Mediabase airplay and is multiplied by the number of persons listening to the radio at the time of those plays, delivering total audience impressions which is the broadcast equivalent of the number of streams from a streaming music service.
Grande received a Titanium Award last year in 2020 for "thank u, next" and "7 rings," while Brown received the honor for "No Guidance." Dua Lipa also was presented with a 2020 Titanium Award for "Don't Start Now" and "Break My Heart."
