With singles on the soundtracks to films like Insurgent, Suicide Squad and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, KIDinaKORNER/Interscope band Imagine Dragons have certainly got the musical touch when it comes to writing for the big screen. Now, while they may not be the next Kenny Loggins or Olivia Newton-John, they are devoted to making sure their latest soundtrack cut takes the highway to the hit zone. “Zero”, which hit the market on Wednesday, is featured in the upcoming film Ralph Breaks The Internet, which is scheduled to debut in November. Before the animated picture starts its run, things are already looking animated on the charts, which sees “Zero” in the top 40 (#31) on iTunes, as it makes the all-genre chart in 31 countries globally so far. A lyric video for the release is also doing fairly well on YouTube, which features some footage of the movie’s lead character, passing 900,000 views since mid-afternoon. Of course, this comes at a time when the act is absolutely dominating radio and retail in the U.S. with their hit “Natural”, ranking at #3 on iTunes, #5 on Shazam (1.34 million tags) and #21 on Spotify (87.5 million plays). We can only imagine how big these stats will grow. (Images courtesy of KIDinaKORNER and Interscope Records)
