Surprising many, French Montana’s track ‘Unforgettable’ has set a new streaming record for a song from New York, passing the incredible 2 billion streams mark on Spotify. The 2017 hit, featuring Swae Lee, has now surpassed all other tracks from the album ‘Jungle Rules’ combined.

The hip-hop scene in New York is legendary, with icons like Nas, Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj, and Ice Spice. So it’s no minor feat that French Montana’s ‘Unforgettable’ now holds the title for the most-streamed rap song from the city. Recently, Montana earned several new certifications, including a platinum one for this particular track.

‘Unforgettable’ has been steadily climbing in popularity since its release. Tucked within French Montana’s 2017 album ‘Jungle Rules,’ the song’s success is partly attributed to Swae Lee, who was on the brink of superstardom at the time. Fans have been vocal about Swae Lee’s role, with comments like, ‘This should be Swae Lee ft. French’ and ‘The most-streamed song out of New York got carried by n*gga from Mississippi.’

French Montana’s recent activities have stirred some controversy. Earlier this year, he drew attention by releasing multiple versions of his new mixtape ‘Mac & Cheese 5,’ including a staggering 126-track edition, which did not sit well with many fans. He also made headlines by claiming that streaming has brainwashed artists.

Regardless of these controversies, the achievement of ‘Unforgettable’ remains noteworthy. French Montana and Swae Lee’s collaboration continues to resonate with listeners worldwide, further solidifying its place in hip-hop history.

Whether you’re a long-time fan or new to French Montana and Swae Lee’s music, there’s no denying the milestone ‘Unforgettable’ has achieved. It’s a testament to the ever-evolving landscape of hip-hop and New York’s undeniable influence on the genre.
