Now, less than a fortnight after, it has already been streamed 1,140,815 times, crossing the 1 million barrier on May 25th weeks before the release of its supporting music video!
Epic, to say the least.
Its success comes before the unveiling of its parent album which will feature material the star has recorded since her split from the producer Calvin Harris and the release of their smash hit single ‘I Will Never Let You Down.’
Ms. Ora isn’t the only star making moves online.

How? Only by nabbing 1.2 million views on the platform.
Yes, the clip did that as fans learn that it has been watched for a total of 2,191 days in less than a month and has driven 980 subscriptions to his official channel. The jam appears on his debut offering ‘Shadows & Diamonds.’
Elsewhere, Rihanna’s ‘Bitch Better Have My Money’ continues to show no signs of slowing down…even without a supporting video.
