This week, Post Malone returned to Number One on the Hot 100. He got there with “Sunflower,” a light, breezy collaboration with Rae Sremmurd’s Swae Lee. It’s not a huge surprise that this song topped the charts. “Sunflower” was recorded for the Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse soundtrack, a movie that to date has made about $150 million, according to Box Office Mojo.
“Sunflower” had a lot going for it, but the numbers for “Wow.,” another recent Post song, albeit without the Spider-Man boost, suggest a similar level of automatic listenership that can’t be waved away.
