Avicii has added another page to his story after "Waiting For Love" hit the one billion stream milestone.  

The late dance music legend's single, the opening song on his celebrated sophomore album, Stories, recently joined Spotify's billion-stream club. To celebrate, Martin Garrix, who is credited as a songwriter and producer on the track, took to Instagram to cheer on the astounding achievement.

"I miss you @avicii! Waiting for love reached 1 billion streams today and I wish we could celebrate it together," Garrix wrote alongside a "heart" emoji.

In nabbing the milestone, "Waiting For Love" joins a number of dance tracks which have also established a place on the coveted list. Axwell /\ Ingrosso's "More Than You Know," David Guetta and Sia's "Titanium" and Ed Sheeran's "Bad Habits," to name a few, are also part of group.

"Wake Me Up," a generational dance anthem by Avicii and Aloe Blacc, crossed the one billion stream mark just two short years ago.
