After dancing on our own for so long, we can dance with fans across the globe to the new single by Konichiwa/Interscope’s Robyn, who returns to the music world with “Missing U”. Call your girlfriends, because this single and artist were sure missed by many people. In the U.S., it’s now at #15 on iTunes, one of 44 countries where “Missing” places on the all-genre chart. The hit is doing best in her native Sweden, where it’s currently at #1, though its top 20 status here might be a surprise, given her lack of U.S. success (other than three pop hits in the late 90’s.) Over on Spotify and Apple Music, the tune has started to pick up some solid streaming, with playlisting at the latter (Pure Pop 50, The A-List: Pop, etc.) driving spikes there. Totals at both services will be on the rise following Friday’s global update of their respective new release-driven lists. The song is also seeing positive early results at the larger services like YouTube (115,000 views for a lyric video) and Shazam (4,000 tags) from its first half-day of availability, both accumulating data with no U.S. chart rankings as of yet or significant airplay at any radio format. Will Robyn achieve her biggest hit here in two decades, while continuing to please audiences abroad? “U” will see soon. (Images courtesy of Konichiwa and Interscope Records)
