The Greatest Showman song Rewrite The Stars is most-streamed movie musical hit | Films | Entertainment


A couple of years ago, The Greatest Showman released in cinemas to a mediocre box office and lukewarm reviews. Yet over the coming months, the Hugh Jackman musical gathered steam and saw its soundtrack smash music records around the world. Now Stubhub has found from Spotify data that a certain song from the film is the most-streamed movie musical hit of all time.

And it turns out that The Greatest Showman’s Rewrite The Stars is No 1 with over 416 million listens since releasing in 2017.

While not far behind was This Is Me on 401 million users.

In fact, 11 tracks of the entire top 15 were songs from The Greatest Showman.

The next highest movie was Grease with You’re The One That I Want on 174 million listens.

Meanwhile, The Greatest Showman has seen some competition from Bohemian Rhapsody and Frozen 2.

In terms of UK digital downloads for home release, both movie musicals have sold more than Hugh Jackman’s film.

Most recently Frozen 2 topped the Freddie Mercury biopic with 328,000 units sold in its first two weeks.

This makes the Disney film not just the most successful musical in this category but also in animated film.

The only movie ahead of Frozen 2 is Avengers Endgame, but it is the highest-grossing film of all-time after all.

Meanwhile, the animated musical is the 10th biggest film ever.

To date, it has made over $1.45 billion at the box office.

No doubt, Frozen 3 is only a matter of time now.
