Another milestone for Dean Lewis as ‘Be Alright’ hits 1 billion streams

Island Records Australia and Dean Lewis have a billion reasons to celebrate this week.

Thanks to a great track record with playlist curators and radio, Lewis’ hit single ‘Be Alright’ has just surpassed one billion streams globally.

‘Be Alright’ has been embraced around the world even with its strong Australian pronunciation.

With the main hook “I know you love her, but it’s over mate. It doesn’t matter, put the phone away” having such an Australian twist on the exploration of vulnerability, the world has seemed to still relate to the honest heartbreak anthem.

2019 continues to shape up to be a massive year for Dean as the statistics keep rolling in.

‘Be Alright’ has now hit 7 x Platinum in Australia and surpassed Platinum in 16 other countries, including US, UK and Canada.

The track topped the TMN Hot 100 airplay chart for eight consecutive weeks, the most weeks running for an Australian artist since Silverchair’s ‘Straight Lines’ in 2007.

His debut album A Place We Knew debuted at #1 on the ARIA Charts and has already been certified gold status which is an impressive effort for a newcomer.

Earlier in the year, Lewis was acknowledged for his songwriting efforts at the 2019 APRA awards where he won Breakthrough Songwriter of the Year and the Outstanding International Achievement Award for ‘Be Alright’.

With his recent sold-out Australian tour wrapping up and the commencement of his Europe headlining tour, Dean has just released a live video of ‘Stay Awake from The Forum in Melbourne which highlights his ability to blend heartfelt lyrics with euphoric moments.

Returning home next month, he will be taking the stage at Splendour In The Grass for a victorious performance full of celebration.
