With ‘Flowers,’ Miley Cyrus Maintains Lead for 2023 Single Crown

by Patria

Miley Cyrus continues to buy herself flowers as she maintains her position as the UK’s biggest song of 2023 so far, the Official Charts can reveal as we head into the final months of the year.

The dazzling post-disco breakup anthem shares the record for the year’s longest-running number one, completing 10 weeks at the top of the Official Singles Chart, tied with Dave & Central Cee’s Sprinter. Flowers gave Miley her third UK chart-topper in January, and her first in nearly a decade, since both We Can’t Stop and Wrecking Ball in 2013.

The song’s success even helped Miley achieve the coveted Official Chart Double, as parent album Endless Summer Vacation topped the Official Albums Chart during Flowers’ reign at the top.

According to the Official Charts Company, Flowers has sold a total of 1.5 million UK chart units since its release in January, with over 178 million streams and over 87,000 downloads, making it the most streamed and downloaded song of the year so far.

Flowers also claims the biggest week of any track in 2023, selling a mammoth 121,000 chart units in its second week at #1. This makes it the longest #1 single by a female artist this decade. It ties the epic runs of Whitney Houston’s I Will Always Love You and Rihanna’s Umbrella.

In second place is RAYE and 070 Shake’s jagged Escapism. The experimental electronic banger became RAYE’s first UK No. 1 single in January and has shifted nearly 1 million chart units so far this year.
