Notably, “Dreamers” has set a new record for the fastest official FIFA World Cup song to top the iTunes Song chart in the United States- the soundtrack only took two hours and 11 minutes to reach the No. 1 spot.

It also now joins “Tukoh Taka” by Nicki Minja, Myriam Fares and Maluma as the only FIFA World Cup song that hit first place on the US iTunes Song chart. It is even the first-ever FIFA World Cup song in history to reach No. 1 in 100 music markets.
