These are “Girls,” “All My Friends,” which peaked inside the top 25, and “Slow Dance,” which is now ranked number 29 and still climbing.
In terms of streaming, AJ has racked up more than 100 million streams and 4.15 million monthly listeners on Spotify. This cemented himself as the most promising male artist in 2019.
Outside the U.S., the Philippines is considered to be one of the biggest music markets of AJ. He said, “I was pleasantly surprised when I first learned this and I’m so excited to finally get to meet some of my Filipino fans.”
