SZA’s new single, “I Hate You,” has set an Apple Music record as the most-streamed R&B Song by a female artist in its first week.

“I Hate U” currently appears on Apple Music’s Top Songs chart in 102 countries, and peaked at number one in ten nations: the United States, Anguilla, Barbados, Belize, Bermuda, British Virgin Islands, Dominica, Guinea-Bissau, Papua New Guinea, and Trinidad and Tobago.

SZA debuted “I Hate You” in August on an anonymous SoundCloud account. “Honestly this started out as an exercise. I just wanted somewhere to dump my thoughts w out pressure…y’all made it a thing and I’m not mad lmao. ask and u shall receive,” the nine-time Grammy nominee commented on Instagram.
