Rihanna made history on Sunday night with her Apple Music Halftime Show: Not only did she usher in a new era of halftime history with an epic, career-spanning performance, but she also had a historic night on Apple Music. Sunday was Rihanna’s biggest day in Apple Music history by streams worldwide. It was also the biggest day in Shazam’s history.

Immediately after her performance, Rihanna’s concurrent listeners on Apple Music worldwide jumped a staggering 331%. She had notably more concurrent listeners than any of last year’s performers. All told, the hour following her halftime show was Rihanna’s biggest hour in Apple Music history by both concurrent listeners and streams.

Also of note, her catalog promptly stormed the charts worldwide. Nearly 16 years after its release, “Umbrella” reached the songs chart in 105 countries — a new record for the song – and is also the #1 song that her fans love to sing the most with Apple Music Sing. “We Found Love” also reached the songs chart in a record 92 countries worldwide and “Work” re-entered the charts in more than 50 countries. Rihanna’s songs charted in 149 countries on Sunday night.

Across Shazam, the Halftime Show resulted in Rihanna’s biggest day ever for Shazams. 8:31 PM EST was the most-Shazamed minute of the show, and also the most-Shazamed minute in the US since last year’s Halftime Show, with “We Found Love (feat. Calvin Harris)” is the song with the most Shazams from Rihanna’s Super Bowl performance.
