Adele’s comeback single (33), ‘Easy On Me’, already seems to be an outright hit. The single appears to have been listened to no less than 19.7 million times on Spotify on Friday. The song has thus pulverized several daily records, figures from the streaming service show.
Spotify announced Friday evening, before the day was over, that the record for most streamed new release in one day had been broken. The last time a single scored so well on the first day was on May 21, when Butter by BTS was listened to more than 11 million times.
The overall record has been on Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas Is You since December 24 . The Christmas classic was then listened to 17.2 million times.
Incidentally, not everyone is equally enthusiastic about Adele’s new song.
