A Swedish 19-Year-Old With Only 160 Facebook Followers Just Topped Spotify’s US Viral Top 50 With His First Single Release

Via Business Insider:

’Paris’ is the first song to be released by a Malmö-based musician called Le Sinner.

Yesterday the song soared up to Spotify’s Viral Top 50 in the US, which means that it was the most shared track.

“While I was in the studio yesterday it seems Paris became the most viral song in the US. This is completely unreal, I can’t find words. Thank you!” Le Sinner wrote on his Facebook page.

Considering his Facebook page only has 160 followers, having the most viral song – if only for a little while – is quite a feat.

The record company behind Le Sinner, Today is Vintage, will not even reveal his real name. They leave it at presenting him as a 19-year-old Swedish-Iranian living in Malmö, writes Veckans Affärer.

“Our current priority is to push ‘Paris’ both at home and internationally. We will of course follow up with more music when at the appropriate time”, Francis Cartier at Today is Vintage told Dygnet Runt.
