Miley Cyrus made quite a splash with her latest single “Flowers” and she set several personal milestones with this chart-topping song. “Flowers” returned atop the Billboard Hot 100 for the fourth time this week, becoming the singer’s longest-running song at No. 1.

During its latest week on the chart, “Flowers,” drew 74.5 million radio airplay audience impressions and 38.7 million streams, in addition to selling 26,000 copies. It left all the other contenders for No. 1 in the dust, including SZA’s “Kill Bill” at No. 2 and Morgan Wallen’s “Last Night” at No. 3.

This is the fourth week that “Flowers” spent at no. 1 and this number is quite significant for Cyrus. Her latest single managed to pass the three-week command of her prior Hot 100 leader, “Wrecking Ball” in 2013. These are here only two chart-toppers, but she also reached the top five with “The Climb”, “Party in the U.S.A.”, and “We Can’t Stop”.

“Flowers” was met with widespread acclaim following its release on January 12, and became the fastest song to cross 100 million plays on Spotify globally, after scoring the biggest week for a song in the platform’s history. It serves as the lead single from Cyrus’ upcoming studio album Endless Summer Vacation, set to be released on March 10.
