Following the presidential inauguration on Jan. 20, “Better Days” — a duet by Justin Timberlake and Ant Clemons — topped the record for most-Shazamed song in a single day in the United States.

“Better Days” was performed by Timberlake and Clemons during the Celebrating America primetime inaugural special honoring President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.

According to stats released by Shazam, the song was Shazamed more than 90,000 times within 24 hours of the performance, bringing it to No. 1 on the U.S. Shazam chart and breaking previous records.  “Better Days” also saw immediate gains after Wednesday’s inauguration programming.
