According to Chart Data, the song returned to the #1 position on iTunes during his performance on Sunday night, marking a huge uptick in streams as well. They are recognizing the track as the biggest of the last twenty-one years, which is a huge feat for any artist to accomplish. Congratulations to The Weeknd.
In other news pertaining to the Toronto native, it’s being reported that The Weeknd likely was not paid for his SuperBowl performance. Despite investing $7 million of his own money into the massive production, The Weeknd probably didn’t net any money from Pepsi or the NFL, which would make sense considering Super Bowl performers don’t generally get paid. However, the exposure and the aforementioned boost in streaming and sales will possibly make up for that.
