John Fogerty’s ‘Fortunate Son’ Reaches 1 Billion Streams On Spotify

John Fogerty‘s song “Fortunate Son” has surpassed one billion streams on Spotify.

Recently, in March, another Fogerty-written song “Have You Ever Seen The Rain” also surpassed one billion streams.

“Fortunate Son” is featured on Spotify‘s Billions Club playlist, which currently includes under 450 songs.

Written by Fogerty and released as an early single in October 1969, “Fortunate Son” was featured on Creedence Clearwater Revival‘s fourth studio album Willy and the Poor Boys.

The album includes other Fogerty-written hits like “Down On The Corner” and “Midnight Special,” which was released in November of 1969 to wide critical acclaim and commercial success. The album peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200.

In a press release, Fogerty expressed his feeling about the achievement, saying, “I am humbled and honored to have my song “Fortunate Son” achieve one billion streams. This comes at a time when I have finally acquired the rights to my early songs after a lifetime of waiting.”

“I wrote this song to express my outrage about the unequal treatment of people in our culture,” he continued. “These words came straight from my heart, and I still feel the same today. I am looking forward to celebrating this song with my fans.”
