Bon Jovi celebrated the 1,000 million streams of one of his songs on Spotify, which one?
Bon Jovi is happy. This is how he was seen on his Instagram account when he received a black box from Spotify that came with an important announcement. The 60-year-old artist uncovered the box and read the content of the recognition: “For 1,000 million streams, Living on a prayer, great, thanks Spotify, thanks everyone.”
