Melbourne funk trio Cookin' On 3 Burners have hit a mammoth milestone with their track This Girl, which has officially racked up more than one billion streams.
Written by Jake Mason, Ivan Khatchoya and Lance Ferguson, This Girl has earned a spot on APRA AMCOS’ exclusive The 1,000,000,000 List.
This Girl, which features vocals from Melbourne artist Kylie Auldist, blew up big time in 2016 after a remix was released by French DJ and producer Kungs, topping charts across the globe.
“Starting off as a band doing gigs and supporting our uni careers – who would have thought we’d write this song and many others? It’s great to have you as friends and colleagues,” Mason said.
APRA AMCOS Chief Executive Dean Ormston added: “A billion streams is an enormous milestone, and a yardstick by which the international community looks and reveres the evolution of a work.”
The news arrives as Ferguson – who also leads The Bamboos - releases new music under Machines Always Win, a “cinematic electronic project”.
Runner is the lead cut and title track from his forthcoming album, set for release on November 1.
