My Blinding Lights Weeknd Cover broke 12k streams on Spotify

As you might know, The Weeknd is one of my favorite artists. So when his 80’s bop Blinding Lights came out I quickly made a cover for fun, just like many others I’ve done.

I ended up making it in one day and my only plan was to put it on Soundcloud. Not even my main page, but my covers page since I’m at the upload limit.

But… Nightshine convinced me to put it on Spotify. I wasn’t planning to because normally nothing happens and I end up losing money on it. Not for long!

Here’s a live breakdown of the session and how I made it!
