Adele’s lead single from her upcoming ’30’ album, ‘Easy on Me’, has become Spotify’s most streamed song within a single day, dislodging the BTS track, ‘Butter’, which scored more than 20.9 million global streams on May 23, reports ‘Billboard’ quoting a rep of the music streaming service provider.
The 33-year-old British artiste released the piano-driven ballad at 7 p.m. (US Eastern Time) on Thursday. Spotify is believed to reach 365 million monthly active users and its first-day stream calculations account for multiple time zones across the world. ‘Easy on Me’ also set a record on Amazon Music, receiving the most first-day streams of any song in the platform’s history, the company announced on Saturday.
In a statement posted to Adele’s Twitter account on Wednesday, the singer reflected on the making of ’30’ with mixed feelings: “I was certainly nowhere near where I’d hoped to be when I first started it three years ago. Quite the opposite actually. I rely on routine and consistency to feel safe; I always have. And yet there I was knowingly — willingly even — throwing myself into a maze of absolute mess and inner turmoil!”

Continuing with her reflective account, she said: “I’ve learned a lot of blistering truths about myself along the way. I have shed many layers but also wrapped myself in new ones.”
She ended on a note of positivity: “I’ve finally found my feeling again. I would go as far as to say that I’ve never felt more peaceful in my life.”
