MEAT LOAF’S STREAMS GO THROUGH THE ROOF FOLLOWING HIS DEATH.
Meat Loaf is proving to be bigger in death than in life. The late-singer’s streams are up an astounding 2,583 percent since his January 20th death. The legendary singer died this past January 20th, at the age of 74 with no cause of death announced. Billboard reported: “From January 21st, the day the rocker’s death was announced, through January 23rd, on-demand audio and video streams of Meat Loaf’s music soared to 15.9 million, according to initial reports to MRC Data. That’s up from 593,000 streams over January 18th to 20th.”
Leading the way is (1993’s) ‘I’d Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That),’ which accrued 3.2 million streams (from) January 21st to 23rd, a 1,645 percent rise from 186,000 (spanning) January 18th through 20th.
Just below that was 1977’s “Paradise By The Dashboard Light,” which drew 3.1 million streams — up 1,976 percent from 147,000 in the days prior. ‘Two Out Of Three Ain’t Bad’ snagged 1.9 million plays — up 1,856 percent, with the Bat Out Of Hell title track reaching 1.6 million steams — up 4,399 from before his death was announced.
