Everything was changed, when the US was forced to go into lockdown. How people consumed music was already changing, but streaming services won big. Spotify was one of those winners, and J.I. The Prince of NY was the most-streamed artist, during quarantine, on the platform.
In 2019, J.I. signed with Interscope Records, to much fanfare. He has become a household name, keeping a consistent flow of new music coming. These past two years have seen him really take over the game.
J.I. The Prince of NY proved just how big of a name he has become, over the past year. Between April 2020 and April 2021, J.I. was the most-streamed hip hop artist, according to Viberate. With these numbers, J.I. even managed to get more streams than Megan Thee Stallion.
