What happens when hockey games and hit tunes cross paths? Well, if you’re a fan of Fueled By Ramen band Panic! At The Disco, you might be asking yourself, “What the puck is this about?” Scoring a goal with viewers of the Stanley Cup Playoffs and passionate fans around the world, “High Hopes”, the third song to be issued from the upcoming Pray For The Wicked set, delivers an anthemic pop sound that’s bound to stick around all summer long. Following the song’s debut about a week ago, “High” scored the highest sales peak of the era so far, reaching #2 on iTunes in the U.S., which bests the #4 high of “Say Amen (Saturday Night)” from a couple of months back. Overall, the single charted in just under 50 territories, entering the top five in 15 to date. At Spotify, “High” enters at #7 and #10 on the U.S. and Global Viral charts, respectively, with over 3.3 million streams globally, which paces behind “Amen” at a similar stage. All hope is not lost, however, as its audio-only video on YouTube, a recent entry on the Trending chart, just passed three million views at the platform. As it approaches 13,000 tags on Shazam historically, with plenty of room to grow, chances are that “High” will soar to new heights before you know it.
