FLORIDA KEYES, FLORIDA — Key biscayne Florida is the latest hit to hit the Billboard Top 20, and it’s a sign that floridas popularity in the key-music industry is picking up steam.
Florida’s debut album, FLYER, made it to #3 on the Billboard 200 chart last week, and the song has also topped the Hot 100 on Billboard’s Alternative Songs chart since it debuted on June 29, 2017.
Keys, who’s been an artist on both Flourishes music and video releases, hit the key charts again with FLYERS EP, which debuted on March 25, 2018, and peaked at #7 on the Digital Song Sales chart.
“The song was an obvious choice for our album cover, and I really love how it feels in my hands,” Keys said in a statement.
Key is known for her songwriting prowess and flamboyant stage presence.
Keys was featured on the song “We Will Rock You,” a collaboration with DJ Tiesto.
Keys also sang on the hit song “The Way You Look Tonight,” which went to #1 on the Hot R&b/Hip-Hop Songs chart.
Florida Keys is the first floridan artist to reach the Billboard Hot 100 since Keyes debuted on the charts in the mid-1990s.
FLYERS was produced by The Alchemist and The Alchemist & The Revolution, and is set to be released on March 20, 2018.
For Keys, her hit song comes on the heels of a major career milestone, as she becomes the first artist to hit #1 for a solo album on the Top 20 singles chart in over 25 years.
It’s not just Keys’ debut album that’s a smash hit.
FLYers is also a Top 10 smash hit, with “The Girl I Used to Know” becoming the latest track on Floridans best-selling album, Flutter.
And Keys is now also the first woman to hit “One for All” for a hit single on the chart.
