The original version of 'Get Lucky' has now been streamed over 100 million times on Spotify.

On June 28, 'Get Lucky' became the first single released in 2013 to sell a million copies in the UK, taking just 69 days to cross the 1 million mark.

The French duo will follow 'Get Lucky' with 'Lose Yourself To Dance', another track from their Number One album 'Random Access Memories'.
