"Dreams and Nightmares," the title cut to Meek Mill's 2012 album of the same name, is having a great week. Monday, the day after the Philadelphia Eagles secured their very first Super Bowl victory, the track saw a massive streaming spike.
According to Billboard's stats, Meek's song bagged 1.47 million on-demand audio and video streams in the U.S. on Monday. Just for comparison's sake, more recent hits like Zayn's "Pillowtalk" usually take a full week to pull that kind of streaming haul. That marks an increase of 71 percent compared to what "Dreams and Nightmares" was pulling the day of the Super Bowl.
The Eagles understandably took a strong liking to the hometown hero's track, ultimately taking the field to it at Sunday's game.
In a statement given to NBC's John Clark after the Super Bowl, Meek—who's currently serving a widely disputed sentence for probation violation—said he felt pride for his hometown.
"Last night, I felt especially proud to be from the great city of Philadelphia," he wrote. "All the heart that the Eagles showed in winning the Super Bowl has given the best fans in the world real hope and inspiration and I'm truly humbled. I wish my current situation was different, and that I could be with my brothers on that team, and the other Eagles fans, in celebrating this once-in-a-lifetime experience. But I have faith that truth and justice will win out in the end."
