Hozier, the singer-songwriter who rose to fame with his hit single “Take Me to Church,” has released a new EP titled Unheard, with the focus track being “Too Sweet.” Despite being known as a rocker, Hozier’s new song has quickly become a hit on streaming platforms, debuting at No. 2 on Spotify’s U.S. chart with 3.342 million plays. This places him behind only popular hip-hop artists Future and Metro Boomin, whose single “Like That” opened at No. 1 with 3.73 million streams.

The success of “Too Sweet” on Spotify is a surprising development, as Hozier is not typically associated with the kind of commercial success seen by mainstream pop and hip-hop artists. While Future and Metro Boomin were expected to dominate streaming platforms, Hozier’s performance on the charts has been a delightful surprise. The early success of his new song indicates that it may be on track for even bigger achievements in the coming weeks.

As the first 24 hours of tracking show promising results for “Too Sweet,” Hozier may be on track to return to the Hot 100 chart and potentially secure a high position. The EP Unheard, on which the song is featured, is also likely to make a notable debut on the Billboard 200 chart, possibly within the top 20. This resurgence in popularity for Hozier comes more than a decade after his breakthrough hit, signaling a new era of success for the Irish musician.

The rapid rise of “Too Sweet” reflects a trend of unexpected success stories in the music industry, with artists from various genres finding mainstream recognition and commercial success through streaming platforms. Hozier’s ability to appeal to a wide audience and generate significant streaming numbers demonstrates the power of digital platforms in shaping the music landscape.

As Hozier continues to promote and release new music, it will be interesting to see how his latest single and EP perform on streaming platforms and traditional music charts. The early success of “Too Sweet” suggests that Hozier’s popularity is on the rise once again, paving the way for future opportunities and accomplishments in his music career. Fans can look forward to more new music from the talented artist as he continues to make his mark in the industry.
