HITS Daily Double


With "As It Was," Columbia superstar Harry Styles has officially broken two major records on Spotify; the streamer has announced that the single has now achieved the biggest single-day U.S. streaming total in the DSP's history, with 8.3m streams, surpassing Olivia Rodrigo's "drivers license." Additionally, it's now the year's most-streamed song globally in a single day, with 21.6m streams, a title most recently held by Anitta's "Envolver," with 8.6m streams in March.

As we reported earlier, "As It Was" is also killing it at other DSPs. Apple Music announced on 4/3 that Harry’s track had broken the record for top first-day streams in 2022 and had also earned the most first-day worldwide streams “of any Spatial Audio release” since that enhancement was first rolled out.

Meanwhile, the video is racking up giant numbers on YouTube. The track is likewise blowing up at Pop radio, flying toward the top of the chart.

Is Harry's new one on track to be the biggest song of 2022? We wouldn't be remotely surprised.
