Last month, fans of Konichiwa/Interscope’s Robyn were treated to a scrumptious single called “Missing U”, which entered the top 15 on iTunes in the U.S. and has over ten million plays on Spotify thus far. Furthermore, “Missing” has also generated over 92,500 tags on Shazam and 1.3 million views for its lyric video on YouTube. Now, the sweet sound of Robyn returns in a new release titled “Honey”, a song that was previously used (in demo form) in an episode of the HBO series Girls last year. At the time, with no digital release, the single charted on Shazam in several countries, including the top 100 (#88) of the U.S. list. However, as the title track from her forthcoming album, out October 26, it’s poised to do even greater. After debuting on Wednesday afternoon, two versions of “Honey”, an edit and an album version, are on the all-genre survey on iTunes in close to 30 countries, including the U.S. chart, with the latter now inside the top 100. It also checks in with about 45,000 views for a lyric video that launched after its radio premiere. All the tag action that began in the spring of 2017 is also picking up again, with the song registering about 59,000 tags so far on Shazam. Honey, you should listen to it now before it really takes off!
