"Want You Back" by 5 Seconds of Summer amasses over 110m global streams
5 Seconds of Summer are back on top.
Their comeback single, "Want You Back", entered iTunes chart in over 18 countries at No. 1.
The Aussie band have been hailed as the “biggest new rock act in the world” by Rolling Stone.
5 Seconds of Summer (5SOS) is the only band in history to see its first two full-length studio albums enter the Billboard 200 at No. 1.
“Want You Back" has already amassed more than 110 million streams worldwide.
Billboard calls the track “painstakingly catchy”, whilst Idolator says “the Aussie hitmakers dive head-first into slick pop with a rhythmic edge on their best single to date.”
Altogether 5SOS have sold over 6 million albums and over 3 billion streams worldwide.
Their self-titled debut LP has sold more than 3.5 million units worldwide, with 1.5 million albums and more than 4.5 million single tracks sold in the US alone.
In 2016 the band played 101 sold out arena shows around the world. 2015’s “Sounds Good Feels Good” charted at No. 1 in 12 countries, including the US, the UK and Australia, making them the first Australian band in history to be simultaneously No. 1 in those three countries. “She’s Kinda Hot”, the album’s first single, topped the iTunes charts in 44 countries. After a year promoting the record and playing their 101 sold out arena shows in 2016, 5SOS spent 2017 living, writing and recording their new album in Los Angeles.
The rockers, who have built a loyal and passionate fan base playing shows around the world, have decided to take new music directly to their fans on the sold out 5SOS3 tour, which kicked off in April and will run until June.
5SOS have won an American Music Award, a People’s Choice Award, an iHeartRadio Music Award, five MTV European Music Awards, two ARIA Awards and an MTV Video Music Award.
The band are set to release their highly anticipated upcoming record “Youngblood” next month on June 22 via Capitol Records.
