We’ve never seen the roll-out of a new song quite like Daft Punk‘s “Get Lucky.” Between the SNL teasers, the fake leaks, and the swelling wave of anticipation that crashed when we finally got to hear the official version of the Pharrell and Nile Rodgers-assisted cut, this has been one of the most hyped songs in recent history, and it doesn’t disappoint.
All the hype paid off, too. The Guardian reports that the single—the French duo’s first in eight years—broke the record for most first-day streams in Spotify’s history.
Will Hope, Director of label relations for Spotify, commented: “The robots have once again shown themselves to be true innovators, not only with their new musical direction and the stellar cast of collaborators they’re working with, but also by undertaking one of the best album campaigns we’ve seen for some time. We expect the album to become one of the biggest, if not the biggest, on Spotify this year.”
