Beckham will be heading out on tour in the fall of 2021, and he’s celebrating a milestone for the single he debuted on “American Idol” and sang to celebrate his win.
“Just wanna say thank you to everyone for streaming 23 on Spotify over 5 million times,” Beckham wrote on his Instagram story on Monday, August 16, 2021. “Y’all are crazy.”
Beckham’s Single Has Helped Launch His Career
As part of winning “American Idol,” Beckham took home a record deal with Hollywood Records in addition to a cash prize, according to Newsweek. The cash prize has been reported to be around $250,000, though the winner does have to cover some of their own costs in creating their record, according to The Blast.
Beckham’s single, “23,” was instantly popular following the debut on “American Idol.”
The song got up to number one on iTunes and other streaming services following its release, according to Music Mayhem.
“Now I’m 23 and there ain’t nobody who can drink like me,” the chorus says. “Soon I’ll be 24, and the lord knows I can’t drink no more.”
Now, the song has over 5 million plays on Spotify since its release, which is a huge milestone for an “American Idol” champion.
