According to Billboard , the song logged 116.2 million U.S. streams in the week ending in July 19, passing Baauer’s fellow viral hit “Harlem Shake.” On the week ending in March 2, 2013, “Harlem Shake” had 103.1 million streams.
This week also marks Drake’s 41st week at No. 1 in the span of 8 years, tying him with Rihanna for most Hot 100 chart-topping hits in this decade. Oh, and Scorpion just finished out its third straight week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
The viral dance challenge, which is now being discouraged for safety reasons, undoubtedly gave a boost to the single’s streams.
Everyone from Will Smith to Ciara joined in on social media, as well as thousands of non-celeb fans attempting to win Kiki’s love. Drake even performed his own rendition during a performance a couple weeks ago.
