Pop artist Miley Cyrus’ song “Flowers” became the world‘s best-selling single in 2023, according to industry organization IFPI.

The hit pop song had 2.7 billion streams on subscription services last year.

– With its message of independence, the song hit a global audience and defines what an international hit is, says Lewis Morrison in IFPI.

The song is inspired by Bruno Mars’ “When I Was Your Man” from 2012, and is about taking care of yourself after a breakup.

IFPI represents the international record industry and bases the overview on streaming from all platforms, as well as downloads and physical sales.

One of Norway’s biggest international hitmakers in recent years, Magnus August Høiberg (36) from Halden, known under the stage name Cashmere Cat, also features high on the list.

He is listed as producer, songwriter and co-producer on The Weeknd song “Die For You”, which takes the fourth spot.

The song was originally released in 2016, but was relaunched last year in a remix with Ariana Grande on vocals.

The remix gained momentum via TikTok. According to IFPI, there were 1.78 billion paid streams of it globally in 2023.

Cashmere Cat has featured on the list before as well.

He was heavily involved in The Kid Laroi/Justin Bieber song “Stay,” which had a long run and took both second place in 2021 and third place in 2022.

Won his first Grammy

Earlier in February, “Flowers” won a Grammy in the category of “Best Pop Solo Performance” – Miley Cyrus’ first ever Grammy award. The song also won an award in the “Record of the Year” category.

– This award is fantastic, but I hope it doesn’t change anything, because my life was fantastic yesterday. Not everyone in the world gets a Grammy, but everyone in the world is spectacular. So don’t think that this is important, although it is very important, she said in her speech when she accepted the award.

The song topped the official US Billboard Hot 100 chart for eight weeks and broke Spotify records with more than 100 million plays in one week.

More big names

In second place came the artist Rema and Selena Gomez with “Calm Down”. This is the first time that artists from Nigeria and Mexico end up in the top ten.

Taylor Swift had two songs on the chart, with “Cruel Summer” at number seven and “Anti-Hero” at number nine.

Swift was also recently named global artist of the year for the fourth time by the IFPI.
