The monthly listener total for Jamaican reggae artist Shenseea on the streaming platform Spotify has increased to seven million, ranking her as the fourth most-played reggae artist on Spotify behind Shaggy, who has 14.4 million monthly listeners; Bob Marley, who has 16.1 million; and Sean Paul who has 24.9 monthly listeners.

The song, which provides Shenseea with her highest streaming numbers on Spotify, “Obsessed” is included on Calvin Harris’s album, “Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 2.” Puth, Harris, Shenseea, and Shenseea’s manager, Dizzycleanface, Jesse Boykins III, Nathalia Marshall, Rachael Kennedy, and Lance Ship are all credited as writers on the song.
“Obsessed” has been streamed 8.4 million times, but Shenseea’s most-streamed Spotify track is still “ShenYeng Anthem,” which has amassed 22.8 million listens.
