Earlier this week (Jan. 26), Miley Cyrus’ “Flowers” surpassed the top streamed song in Spotify history for a second time.
As Spotify announced on Twitter, “It’s official…@MileyCyrus broke the record for the most streams in a single week with #Flowers.”.
It was the first week in January that Spotify shared specific numbers for the hit single. Cyrus managed to outdo herself for a second consecutive week after also debuting at No. 1 in the previous frame, making it all the more impressive that she managed to outdo herself for the second consecutive week.
Moreover, the success of “Flowers” has also helped Cyrus’ entire discography gain a truly remarkable 65 percent in the week ending Jan. 19, from “Wrecking Ball” to “Midnight Sky.” According to Luminate — from 20.7 million U.S. on-demand streams per week to 34.2 million. Furthermore, “Flowers” slyly plays on Bruno Mars’ No. 1 torch song “If I Was Your Man” without sampling or interpolating any of its melodies.
As soon as Flowers reached No. 1, Cyrus tweeted, “Thankful that Flowers is Number 1 around the world. This song is dedicated to my fans & the steadfast self-love I wish for each of you. Forever grateful, Miley.”
