It’s hard to believe that KIDinaKORNER/Interscope’s Imagine Dragons is still attracting new believers, considering that the band has millions of fans that have listened to their music for several years now. Nevertheless, a halftime performance by the quartet during a college football playoff game earlier this week gave their catalog a decent boost, including a new version of their crossover hit “Believer” with Young Money/Republic’s Lil Wayne. It currently appears at #28 on the main U.S. chart on iTunes, with the album version of “Believer” sitting at #9. In fact, a total of three songs by the band are now in the top ten, with “Natural” (#3) and “Thunder” (#5) on their way back up the list as well. Those three singles alone have a substantial combined total of just under 2.1 billion streams on YouTube and 24 million tags on Shazam, though the new remix of “Believer” is certainly not at those levels yet: as of the most recent update, that version comes in at almost 40,000 plays on Spotify and 1.1 million views across two uploads (an audio-only clip and the live performance noted above) on YouTube, with negligible action on Shazam and other prominent services. We imagine that the act’s international success will be strong for some time.
