British singer Sam Smith is back with new music after a two-year hiatus. His latest single, Too Good at Goodbyes, has been making waves since it was released more than a week ago.
It topped Spotify’s Global Top 50 and now has another accomplishment under its belt.
The song went straight to number 1 on the UK charts, making it singer’s sixth number 1 hit single. Previously, his songs La La La, Money On My Mind, Stay With Me, Lay Me Down, and Writing’s On The Wall all landed at number 1.
As of Friday (15 September), Official Charts reported the song had 4.4 million streams and 33,000 downloads sold.
Smith joins the likes of Rod Stewart, Queen, Britney Spears, and Justin Bieber, all of whom have had six chart leaders.
‘This song is about me and about a relationship that I was in,’ Smith said upon the song’s release. ‘I’m still very, very single.’
He continued: ‘‘It’s been a long while since I’ve put any music out and I feel that this first single sets the tone of what is to come. People are going to see, this one as I’ve said is about me and something that I’ve gone through.’
