Feist’s “Pleasure,” the singer-songwriter’s first new song release in six years, topped the real-time Billboard + Twitter Trending 140 chart on the morning of March 17, shortly after the tune’s release.

The Billboard + Twitter Trending 140 chart measures the real-time acceleration of conversation around artists and their music on Twitter.

The Canadian pop veteran released the song, which is also the title track of her upcoming fifth studio album of the same name, at 12 a.m. ET Friday (March 17), and the track reached the top of the chart around 8 a.m. The album is scheduled for release on April 28.

She announced the album on Tuesday, March 14 on Twitter, writing “I’ve been so inward facing during the making of this record that I hadn’t quite prepared myself to face it, and myself, outward again.” She added, “I made this record last winter with 2 of my closest friends, Mocky and Renaud LeTang.”

Feist’s last album, Metals, debuted and peaked at No. 7 on the Billboard 200 chart dated Oct. 22, 2011.
