The new single starts at #92 on this week’s listing, becoming the artist’s first career entry on the listing.

“John Hughes Movie,” moreover, starts at #16 on the Official UK Single Sales Chart for the February 26-March 4 tracking period.

Although it does not make the formal Audio Streaming chart in the UK or other key markets, “John Hughes Movie” did perform respectably on that front. The single closed its opening week with over 950,000 worldwide streams on Spotify. The video also found an audience on YouTube, reaching an impressive 400,000 views.

“John Hughes Movie” is the first single from Peters’ forthcoming, long-awaited debut studio album.
