As evidence of Ice Spice’s soaring popularity, she recently eclipsed the venerable English rock band The Beatles in terms of monthly Spotify listeners. Twitter is also very vocal about it.
The famous Bronx, New York, rhymer, and renowned John Lennon and Paul McCartney-led band were compared in terms of sales on Wednesday (March 1) by hip-hop blog RapTV. The Beatles have almost 2 million fewer monthly listeners than rapper Munch (“Feelin’ U”) as of the time of publication.
The Beatles and Ice Spice each have 27,955,845 weekly listeners, whereas The Beatles have 29,292,796. The Beatles’ peak popularity was in the 1960s, yet they are still regarded as one of the greatest bands of all time and continue to hold numerous Billboard chart records.
The majority of the band’s intended audience is not in the age range where Spotify is frequently used. On Twitter, people have been discussing the fact that Ice Spice has surpassed The Beatles on Spotify.
“I mean, the Beatles are the other, and one of them is a cultural ICON who transformed music forever, had a profound impact on a whole age, and will forever be a part of Western Society. Unsure of why anyone would be surprised,” one user tweeted.
Exactly like God intended,” another poster commented. The Beatles fans don’t even know what Spotify is, according to another Twitter user. Ice Spice is undeniably on the rise, and it’s beginning to manifest on the charts. In the Billboard Top 100 chart, her song “In Ha Mood” is presently at No. 68.

This comes after last month when her single “Gangsta Boo” with Lil Tjay made its chart debut. “Boy’s a Liar Part 2,” a duet with English singer-songwriter Pinkpantheress, is presently No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart after overtaking it as the most-streamed song last week.
The song will probably take the top spot on the list the following week.

I mean, one is a cultural ICON who changed music forever, influenced an entire generation with their music, and will forever be apart of Western Culture for the rest of time, and the other is the Beatles. Not sure why anyone is surprised. https://t.co/psJrRPmSb6
