All the nominees for the Best Original song at the 90th academy awards, made gains in the Billboard 200 Chart dated March 17th. The award was eventually won by ‘Remember Me’ from Coco, as the song, along with five other nominees, was performed by artists on live television.
Different characters performed the song ‘Remember Me’ multiple times in in the movie titled Coco. The live performance at the Academy Awards saw the multiple renditions being performed in a medley, as Gael Garcia Bernal’s lullaby version was segued to Miguel’s version, which also featured Natalia Lafourcade. The movie also managed to win the Oscar for the best animated feature film.
According to Nielsen Music, ‘Remember Me’ by Miguel did not sell the most, but was also the most streamed version of the song, with 1.58 million streams, in the week that ended March 8th. The song also was also present in the top 10 of the Kid Digital Song Sales chart that included three more songs from the movie. The track, featuring Lafourcade, is at No. 2 after seeing an uplift of 325 percent, with 4000 downloads sold in the week.
