Meek Mill’s five-year-old song “Dreams and Nightmares” -- which was adopted as a de facto anthem by the Philadelphia Eagles for the team’s Super Bowl LII championship aspirations -- soared to 1.47 million U.S. on-demand audio and video streams on Monday, Feb. 5, the day after the big game, according to Nielsen Music. The Eagles celebrated their first Super Bowl win on Sunday.
On Feb. 5, the track collected 1.47 million on-demand streams (audio and video combined) – which was an increase of 71 percent compared to its 854,000 on-demand streams on the day of the Super Bowl. That latter number was an 88 percent boost compared to its Saturday tally, when it claimed 454,000 on-demand streams.
To put “Dreams’” single-day 1.47 million number in perspective, notable past hit songs like Zayn’s “Pillowtalk,” Adele’s “Send My Love (To Your New Lover)” and Alicia Keys’ “No One” each earned around the same number of streams in the week ending Feb. 1.
