ISLAND TUNES LOVE SHAZAM
8/1/19

British reality TV series Love Island has set a new record for the five most Shazamed tracks in the U.K. in one day. More than 1m Shazams have been generated across 49 episodes in series five, with Joel Corry's "Sorry" (Asylum) taking first place on 41k.

Love Island viewer numbers have been steadily creeping up since the series launched in the U.K. in 2015; the first episode for series five hit a record 3.3m in June. Average numbers across the whole series, which ended Monday, have yet to be published.

"Sorry" by DJ/producer Joel Corry, featured in the episode airing on 7/24, rocketed to the top of Shazam's U.K. chart the following day on 41k Shazams. The track had jumped 22 places to a new peak inside the Top 20 at #16 on this week's Official Singles midweeks.

Singer/songwriter Lusaint was the first artist to break the one-day Shazam record after her cover of "More Than Friends" (Tristar), featured on the 6/11 show, received 23k Shazams in the U.K. that day. The track hit #1 on Shazam's U.K. chart on 6/16.
