Sam Smith’s “Stay with Me” reaches one billion streams


ABC/Image Group LASam Smith is celebrating a new milestone for his 2014 hit "Stay with Me."

The singer announced on Twitter Tuesday that the song has reached one billion streams.

"Seems like yesterday that me, @jimmynapes & @Tourist wrote 'Stay With Me'," Sam writes. "I remember playing it to friends & family. Feeling so proud and excited. Incredibly surreal & mad feeling knowing that our little kid's been streamed over 1 BILLION F****** TIMES. Wild wild wild. Wild life."

The song has become one of Sam's most successful singles, reaching number two on the Billboard Hot 100 and topping the U.K. Singles Chart.

"Stay with Me," the Darkchild version produced by Rodney Jerkins, won two Grammys: Record of the Year and Song of the Year.
