Ellie Goulding's Love Me Like You Do breaks worldwide streaming record

The singer sets a new global streaming record with her latest track Love Me Like You Do.

Ellie Goulding has set a new worldwide streaming record with her latest single Love Me Like You Do.

The track, which features on the new Fifty Shades Of Grey film, was streamed almost 15.5 million times globally last week. The feat breaks the previous record set by Mark Ronson's Uptown Funk. 

"The love for my new song Love Me Like You Do is on an immense scale," Goulding said. "It's very hard to take it all in. It means the world to me."

Love Me Like You Do recently notched up its second week at Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart, and is currently on course to log a third week at the chart summit. 

Last week, the song became only the second to achieve more than two million audio streams in a week in the UK (2.25 million). Mark Ronson currently holds the UK record, with 2.56 million audio streams in a week.

Meanwhile, the Fifty Shades Of Grey soundtrack is currently Number 1 on the Official Compilation Albums Chart. The LP, which shifted 41,000 copies in the UK last week, also features tracks from Beyonce, Annie Lennox, The Weeknd, Sia and Jessie Ware.
