If you’ve spent the past four months listening to Miley Cyrus’ “Flowers” on repeat, you’re not alone. This viral hit just crossed the one billion mark on Spotify, becoming the fastest song in the platform’s history to reach this coveted number.
Cyrus’ empowerment anthem hit the shelves on January 12 and became an overnight sensation. Its catchy beat and powerful message transformed it into a huge hit, and it scored the biggest week for a song in Spotify’s history upon its release.
Almost four months later, “Flowers” is still breaking records on this music streaming service. It crossed one billion streams on Spotify 112 days after its release, becoming the fastest song in the platform’s history to reach this mark.
This is not such a huge shocker after “Flowers” topped the charts in over 30 countries, starting with the US. It became her second chart-topping single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and spent eight weeks at No. 1.
Cyrus used “Flowers” to build up the hype for her latest studio album Endless Summer Vacation, which was released on March 10. It also produced singles “The River” and “Jaded” and debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart with the biggest week for any of her albums since the chart’s introduction.
