Of the all-time top 10, The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights” is also currently on the weekly ranking, slotting in at No.44 (7.6 million streams).

“Sunflower” initially reached Streaming Songs on the November 3, 2018, chart, debuting at No.8. It spent three weeks at No.1, first topping the chart during the week of January 19-26, 2019, followed by a third week occurring on April 6, 2019.

The track features a goofy behind-the-scenes footage music video of the two recording in the studio and performing onstage together. In the black and white footage, the two trade melodic verses and Malone looks particularly clean cut, looking dapper in a turtleneck. “Me and this guy right here, he’s the genius behind everything and we’re just makin’ trouble,” Malone tells the camera in a clip that introduces the video.
