Lana Del Rey’s new single, “Love,” rocketed to No. 1 on the Billboard + Twitter Trending 140 shortly after its release on Saturday (Feb. 18).

The song is the singer’s first release since her last LP, Honeymoon, which bowed in September 2015. “Love” also serves as the first single from Del Rey’s upcoming new studio album, due out later this year.

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

Though Del Rey stepped away from the spotlight in 2016, she was featured on The Weeknd’s song “Stargirl Interlude,” which appeared on his Billboard 200-topping album Starboy.

Del Rey’s last album, Honeymoon, was released in September of 2015 and debuted and peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard 200.
