Boosted by a video directed by Cole Bennett (over 100 million views), “Ransom” is one of the most popular and surprising rap hits of 2019. With over 224 million Spotify streams since its June 4th release on the platform, the Nick Mira & Taz Taylor-produced hit currently sits at #3 on Spotify’s United States Top 50, and at #4 worldwide, adding over 3.3 million streams per day to its total.
Spotify recently revealed that “Ransom” was the service’s most-streamed song in the U.S. during Summer 2019 (June 1-August 20).
Signed to Galactic Records, in a joint venture with Republic Records, Tecca is preparing to drop his debut project later this year. The Springfield Gardens native was recently featured as the cover artist on Spotify’s Rap Caviar (which features 3 different Tecca tracks) and Today’s Top Hits. Earlier this month, Tecca recruited Juice WRLD to lend his talents to the official “Ransom” remix.
