“Flowers” by Miley Cyrus (USA, b. Destiny Cyrus) amassed 96,032,624 streams on Spotify for the week ending 19 January 2023, smashing the previous record of 84,952,932 set by Adele’s “Easy on Me” in the week to 21 October 2021. Unusually, “Flowers” gained listeners day by day throughout the tracking week, debuting at No.3 on Spotify’s “Daily Top Songs Global” chart on 13 January with 7,716,102 streams and posting 9,631,889, 10,975,946, 15,768,832, 17,077,686 and 17,380,410 streams, respectively, on 14–18 January before hitting its peak of 17,481,759 streams – the fourth- highest number of streams for a track in 24 hours in Spotify’s history – on 19 January 2023. “Flowers” is the first taste of Cyrus’ eighth studio album, Endless Summer Vacation, which is scheduled for release on 10 March 2023.


As of 19 January 2023, “Flowers” was placed fourth, seventh and 10th – with its three 17-million-plus streaming days (17–19 January) – in the list of the most streamed tracks in a 24-hour period on Spotify. Only Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” (21,273,357 streams on 24 December 2022), Adele’s “Easy on Me” (19,749,704 on 15 October 2021) and “Last Christmas” by Wham! (19,079,817 on 24 December 2022) posted higher numbers than “Flowers” did on 19 January 2023.

As well as relegating “Easy on Me” to the runner-up spot in Spotify’s “Weekly Top Songs Global” standings, Olivia Rodrigo’s “Good 4 U” (84,131,760 for the week ending 27 May 2021) was pushed down to third, with Taylor Swift’s “Anti-Hero” and Rodrigo’s “Drivers License” completing a female-dominated Top 5.

Unsurprisingly, “Flowers” logged 100 million streams on Spotify quicker than any other track, bringing up the milestone early on its eighth day of availability (20 January 2023).
