IFPI, the global representative of the recorded music industry, has declared “Flowers” by Miley Cyrus as the recipient of the prestigious IFPI Global Single Award for 2023.

The IFPI Global Single Award recognizes the artist behind the best-selling single worldwide across all digital platforms, encompassing paid subscription streaming, ad-supported services, and single-track downloads.

“Flowers” claimed the top position in this year’s IFPI Global Single Chart, marking Miley Cyrus’s debut in the IFPI Global Chart Top 10. This double Grammy Award-winning track, unveiled in January 2023, achieved simultaneous chart-topping success in 29 markets globally and concluded the year as the foremost chart-topper in countries such as the UK, France, and Australia.

Among the Top 10, 2023 witnessed the maiden appearances on the IFPI Global Chart for artists from Nigeria and Mexico. Rema’s collaboration with Selena Gomez, “Calm Down,” secured the second spot, while Yng Lvcas and Peso Pluma’s “La Bebe” claimed the sixth position, underscoring the burgeoning global prominence of Afrobeats and Regional Mexican genres.

Morgan Wallen’s “Last Night,” which dominated the year-end charts in the USA, secured the eighth spot on the global chart. Meanwhile, Harry Styles’ former IFPI Global Single #1, “As It Was,” landed at the fifth position.

Taylor Swift, named IFPI Global Recording Artist of the Year, made two appearances in the Top 10. “Anti-Hero,” the lead single from “Midnights,” clinched the ninth spot, while “Cruel Summer,” from her 2019 album “Lover,” reemerged at #7 following a resurgence in popularity propelled by her record-breaking Eras tour.

The Weeknd’s “Die For You” claimed the fourth spot, becoming the artist’s third track to break into the IFPI Global Single Chart Top 5, following previous chart-toppers “Blinding Lights” and “Save Your Tears.”

Beyond the Top 10, Tom Odell’s “Another Love” resurfaced at #18 over a decade after its initial release, while YOASOBI’s “IDOL,” the theme song from the anime series “Oshi No Ko,” attained the #19 position, underscoring the significant role of streaming in facilitating both music discovery and rediscovery.
