As we approach the final months of 2023, Miley Cyrus’s hit single “Flowers” continues to hold its position as the biggest song of the year in the U.K., at least so far.

An updated ranking of the most-consumed tracks in the nation has been released by the Official Charts Company, which is like the U.K.’s version of Billboard. Cyrus leads a top 40 packed with a healthy mix of U.K.-based superstars and singers and groups from all around the world.

Since its release in January, “Flowers” has accumulated an impressive total of 1.5 million equivalent chart units in the U.K. alone. That’s far fewer than in the U.S., but the U.K. is only a fraction of the size of America, so that figure is still impressive.

The song’s undeniable success is underscored by its remarkable performance with both streaming platforms and digital downloads. In the U.K., Cyrus’s smash has been streamed 178 million times and purchased 87,000 times. The tune ranks as both the most-streamed and most-downloaded song of the year.

“Flowers” secured Cyrus her third U.K. No. 1 on the songs chart when it debuted in first place in January. The track became the singer’s first chart-topper in nearly a decade since both “We Can’t Stop” and “Wrecking Ball” surged to the summit back in 2013.

In second place on the ranking of the most-consumed songs in the U.K. this year is Raye and 070 Shake’s “Escapism.” Calvin Harris & Ellie Goulding’s somewhat surprising trance hit “Miracle” sits at No. 3. SZA’s “Kill Bill” takes the fourth spot, and Dave & Central Cee’s record-breaking collaboration “Sprinter” rounds out the top five
