Panic! At The Disco’s ‘High Hopes’ becomes band’s most streamed track
Panic! At The Disco‘s 2005 song “I Write Sins Not Tragedies” has long had the honor of being the band’s most streamed track, but it has finally been toppled — by the latest Panic! At The Disco single, “High Hopes.”
According to Loudwire, “High Hopes” had at press time racked up an impressive 289,231,271 streams on Spotify, surpassing the 286,243,687 streams clocked by “I Write Sins.”
The latter song was issued as a single from the band’s debut album, A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out, and what’s notable about its numbers is that streaming was not the major force it is now, with Spotify not even launching for another three years. On the other hand, “High Hopes” came out just last spring on the Pray For The Wicked LP and has already rocketed past “High Hopes” after less than a year.
