Right, but framing this song's success as 'it's huge because his label is paid big money to get it on playlists' isn't factual. If it was that easy, every song would be massive because labels would just pay to get them playlisted. Plenty of songs are heavily playlisted, flop, and then disappear. As It Was has taken off in a massive way because, whether this forum likes it or not, the general public really likes it. You don't get 1.2B streams just because you're in Today's Top Hits.
