Miley Cyrus has made a remarkable return in the music industry. The daughter of Billy Ray Cyrus scored her first global No. 1 on Spotify as her comeback single, "Flowers", soared to 11 million streams dated January 15.
In its opening weekend, "Flowers" stole the No. 1 spot at multiple music charts, including Spotify U.S., Apple Music global, Apple Music U.S., iTunes as well as Amazon Music. In addition, the track made its entry to the Top 25 on this week's Mediabase pop radio chart.
Elsewhere, the song ranks first in the Billboard poll of favorite new music with more than 59 percent of the vote. It beat out new singles by the likes of Bizarrap and Shakira, Sam Smith and others.
Serving as the lead single of Miley's upcoming album, "Endless Summer Vacation", "Flowers" earns the most added honor at pop, hot adult contemporary and rhythmic radio. It garnered pickups from 174 Mediabase-monitored pop stations, 87 Mediabase-monitored Hot AC stations and 19 Mediabase-monitored rhythmic 19 stations.
Miley dropped "Flowers" on January 13, the same day her ex-husband Liam Hemsworth celebrated his 33rd birthday. The singer also gave the track a music video treatment, which shows her walking over a bridge while wearing a golden dress featuring a hood wearing sunglasses as she sings about the end of a breakup. The following scene shows her putting her hair up as she realizes she can live well on her own.
"I can buy myself flowers/ Write my name in the sand/ Talk to myself for hours/ Yeah, some things you don't understand," the 30-year-old songstress sings on the track. "But I can take myself dancing, yeah/ I can hold my own hand/ Yeah, I can love me better than you can."
Fans are convinced that "Flowers" is about Liam and their failed marriage. Aside from noticing that Miley intentionally dropped the song on January 13, fans said that in the MV, Miley replicated a dance she did at an event she attended with Liam.
