The video also got a bump on YouTube and came in at #32 on the Daily Top Music Videos chart on April 8.

Billboard reports that the song was streamed 4.2 million times between April 5 and 11, which is 34 percent more streams than usual. In that window it was also up 19 percent in radio airplay and sold 1,000 downloads… a 166 percent increase, according to Luminate.
