Dancehall superstar Konshens is celebrating a new milestone as he received a plaque to commemorate amassing over a billion streams worldwide.

This feat comprises majorly of YouTube and Spotify streams and is even more impressive as this did not even include other platforms like Apple Music, Tidal, and Amazon. The deejay recently concluded a sold-out European tour where Konshens headlined major reggae, Afro and Latino festivals, and mainstream European club stops. 

“I’m happy to reach such a milestone and thankful to have great fans that love my music across the globe.” Konshens said. “I’m very much aware that there’s a long way to go and the legends I look up to are my daily reminders. I’m just looking forward to what’s next and where my talent and love for this music will take me next.” 

Red Reign, Konshens’ fifth studio album, is an 18-track multi-genre delight featuring Stefflon Don, Spice, Rvssian, Kemar Highcon, Jesse Royal, Dre Island, Rafa Pablön and Kaelyn Kastle.

Released in November of last year, the project debuted at #1 on the iTunes Reggae Album charts and was the product of his journey into introspection during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Gyal Time Again, featuring Charly Black, is Konshens’ latest single and he is gearing up to drop more exciting new singles and collaborations across multi-genres. He is also preparing for Pinknick in Antigua after just returning from Toronto where he headlined back-to-back sold-out nights at Toronto Jerk Fest. 

Since exploding on the music scene in 2005, Konshens has become one of the few true icons/superstars in dancehall and reggae music.

Having worked with the likes of Chris Brown, Cardi B, Doja Cat, Major Lazer, Chainsmokers, Sean Paul, Rick Ross, Nipsey Hussle, Ty Dolla Sign, E40, Enrique Iglesias, Rvssian, Nicky Jam, Farruko, and many more, there is no genre and musical styles off limits to this proven global hit maker.

His international smash hits Bruk Off and 2017’s Turn Me On, to name a few, have helped drive towards his goal of elevating dancehall and Jamaican music to a truly global level and acceptance worldwide.
