Armed with the momentum of the visual, the track has premiered on Spotify US at #2 with 2,180,169 streams.
What’s more, the release has drummed up 11 million views of its visual with 24 hours and has scored a #2 placement on Apple Music US.
All seem to have created the perfect storm of buzz to ensure a high debut on the Billboard Hot 100.

Both tracks are lifted from the 22-year-old’s forthcoming album debut ‘Montero.’
