Not simply off to a hot start at radio, ZAYN & Taylor Swift’s “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” is resonating with music buyers.
According to Republic, “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” sold 120,000 paid US downloads during its first two days of release.
The song flew to #1 on the US iTunes sales chart shortly after its release late Thursday/early Friday, and it maintains that position as of Monday morning. It is a virtual lock to claim #1 on the weekly US Digital Song Sales chart.
Combined with the healthy early radio activity at pop and hot adult contemporary, the strong sales figure will earn “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” an impressive position on next week’s Billboard Hot 100.
