Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber have respectively made unparalleled strides in the streaming arena. As of time reported, the former’s ‘Shape Of You’ holds the record as the most streamed song in Spotify history while the latter is the first and only artist to have at least six songs with a billion streams on the platform.
Now that they’ve joined forces via the recently released ‘I Don’t Care,’ their powers combined are seeing them entering new territory in Spotify’s history books.
As if sitting atop the iTunes and Apple Music sales charts isn’t enough, Spotify reports the song – released just May 10 – broke the platform’s single-day streaming record when it amassed 10.977 million global streams in a 24 hour period (besting a record previously set by Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” as we reported here, in 2018) .
With such huge impact on streaming and digital charts the ‘Care’ is a shoo-in to dethrone Lil Nas X‘s ‘Old Town Road’ from the top of the refreshed Billboard Hot 100 next week.
