2021年3月9日–代表全球唱片音樂產業的IFPI宣布,威肯的〈Blinding Lights〉獲得2020年IFPI全球數位單曲獎。

IFPI全球數位單曲獎是頒發給年度最暢銷數位單曲,是涵括所有數位格式的單曲下載以及付費訂閱服務和廣告支持的串流平台之銷售。

〈Blinding Lights〉是威肯於2020年3月發行的第四張專輯《After Hours》中的第二首單曲。〈Blinding Lights〉獲得了重大商業勝利,在全球30多個國家中排名第一,掀起了抖音尬舞挑戰的病毒式傳播,並打破了美國Billboard Hot 100排行榜前10名和前5名進榜的記錄。這首歌在全球共計有27.2億次的點擊。

在過去五年中曾經四度擠進IFPI的「全球暢銷歌手獎」前十名中,今年名列第四,是他至今的最佳表現。

IFPI國際總會總裁Frances Moore表示:「毫無疑問,〈Blinding Lights〉是當年最佳紀錄的歌曲和最受歡迎的歌曲之一。它引起了全世界樂迷的關注。我們恭喜威肯的成功,很榮幸授予他這個頭銜。」

前三名除了 〈Blinding Lights〉之外還有連續第二年進入前十名的Tones and I's的〈Dance Monkey〉,比去年排名進步,此一佳績僅次於2018年紅髮艾德的〈Perfect〉。羅迪·里奇的〈The Box〉在Billboard Hot 100盤據了11週的第一名,在全球排行榜上名列前茅,同時也在Apple Music 2020年的最佳單曲榜上排名第三;他與樂壇新秀DaBaby合唱的〈ROCKSTAR〉也名列第8,讓他成為唯一進入前十名兩次的藝人。

中國超級巨星肖戰的〈光點〉於其祖國獲得重大成功之後,在IFPI全球十大單曲中名列第七,打破了數位下載銷售的紀錄。防彈少年團藉由〈Dynamite〉一曲在IFPI全球數位單曲榜上首次進榜。去年第一名的Billie Eilish〈bad guy〉,今年第二次進榜排名第9。

IFPI全球數位單曲獎是IFPI在2020年宣布的第二個獎項,之前宣布BTS是2020年IFPI全球唱片最暢銷歌手獎的獲獎者。

The Weeknd wins 2020’s IFPI Global Digital Single Award for Blinding Lights

9th March 2021 – IFPI, the organisation that represents the recorded music industry worldwide, has announced that Blinding Lights by The Weeknd is the winner of 2020’s IFPI Global Digital Single Award.

The IFPI Global Digital Single Award is presented to the world’s best-selling single of the year across all digital formats – including single track downloads, and streams on both paid subscription services and ad-supported platforms.

Blinding Lights was the second single from The Weeknd’s fourth studio album After Hours, which was released in March 2020. A critical and commercial triumph, Blinding Lights peaked at #1 in more than 30 countries across the globe, fuelled a viral TikTok dance challenge, and shattered records for the most weeks in both the top 10 and top 5 of the Billboard Hot 100 in the US. Overall, the track delivered 2.72 billion subscription stream equivalents globally.

The Weeknd has appeared in the top 10 of IFPI’s Global Artist Chart in four of the last five years, and landed at #4 in this year’s chart, his best performance to date.

Frances Moore, Chief Executive of IFPI, said: “Blinding Lights was undoubtedly one of the year’s biggest record breakers and most loved songs. It caught the attention of music lovers all over the world. We would like to congratulate The Weeknd on his success, and it is an honour to award him this title.”

Blinding Lights was joined in the top three by Tones and I’s Dance Monkey, which spent a second successive year in the top ten and improved its chart position versus last year, a feat only matched by Ed Sheeran’s Perfect in 2018. Roddy Ricch’s The Box, which spent 11 weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and topped charts across the world as well as being the top streaming track of 2020 on Apple Music, took #3 in the chart. Roddy Ricch also featured on the #8 track, ROCKSTAR with fellow chart debutant DaBaby, making him the only artist to appear twice in the top 10.

Elsewhere in the top 10, Chinese superstar Xiao Zhan landed at #7, following the outstanding success of Made to Love in his home country, where it broke records for digital download sales. BTS landed their first appearance in the IFPI Global Digital Single chart with Dynamite. Last year’s #1, Billie Eilish’s bad guy, spent a second year in the top 10 landing at #9.

The IFPI Global Digital Single Award is the second award announced by IFPI for 2020, following the announcement that BTS were the winners of 2020’s IFPI Global Recording Artist of the Year Award.

IFPI will count down the top albums of the year in two charts over the next two days, beginning with the Global Album All Format Chart on Wednesday 10th March 13.00 GMT, and the Global Album Sales Chart on Thursday 11th March at the same time.
