Even better than the sweet smell of success? The taste, if you ask Joe Jonas. The musician celebrated his side project DNCE’s “Cake by the Ocean” reaching a billion streams on Spotify by literally eating McDonald’s off the plaque.
“One Billion never tasted so good!” Jonas captioned a March 20 video of himself in a lavish dining room, enjoying the french fries, Chicken McNuggets and a burger that were placed on the music streaming service’s silver platter-shaped plaque marking the achievement. In such a stunning setting, he naturally enjoyed his meal using silverware. “Thank you @Spotify!”
The song — released in September 2015 — was the debut single from DNCE. It was included in the group’s self-titled album debut the following year. “Cake by the Ocean” peaked at No. 9 on the Billboard Hot 100 in March 2016, and spent 46 weeks on the chart.
Jonas isn’t the first musician who celebrated his music reaching the big milestone by eating off the plaque. In October, Quavo devoured some scrambled eggs, waffles, hash browns and orange juice on his plaque to celebrate “Congratulations” — his collaboration with Post Malone — hitting the billion-streams mark.
In September, Drake marked “In My Feelings” reaching the milestone by enjoying some spaghetti on the same Spotify “plate.” Noted Drizzy in his video caption: “We drank out of Grammys now you need a BILL to eat off the plate.”
