Miley Cyrus Just Broke a Major Spotify Record with Her New Anti-Valentine’s Day Song

Miley Cyrus's upcoming album, Endless Summer Vacation, is set to drop on March 10, and if its first single, “Flowers,” is any indication, then we bet this LP is going to do major numbers.

The Hannah Montana alum released “Flowers” just last week, and the track is a major self-empowerment anthem. “I can buy myself flowers / Write my name in the sand,” she sings in the song. Only a few weeks ahead of Valentine's Day, it feels like the perfect middle finger to the conventions of the holiday, and clearly it's resonating with fans, because Cyrus just revealed that the song broke a major Spotify record.

It turns out that “Flowers” just beat the media app's record for most streams in a single week. The news was shared on Spotify's official Twitter account, where they said, “She can buy her own Flowers and break her own records [clapping emoji]. @MileyCyrus' Flowers just became the most-streamed song in a single week in Spotify history [bouquet emoji].”

Cyrus herself then quoted the tweet and added, “Thank you so much @Spotify and my amazing fans. [heart emoji].”

In addition to breaking the Spotify record, “Flowers” has been doing impressive numbers elsewhere too. For instance, on YouTube the music video already has over 78 million views.

The previous song to hold the title for most streams in a week was BTS's “Butter,” which had 99.37 million spins on its debut week. However, Cyrus's “Flowers” just claimed the title by achieving over 100 million streams in the past 7 days, according to Variety. Wow.

We'll be streaming this song for many more days to come (and buying ourselves flowers once Valentine's Day rolls around). Thanks, Miley.
