Usher has seen a huge surge in Spotify streams following his Super Bowl Halftime Show performance.


In an Instagram post shared on Monday, Spotify revealed that the singer's overall streams have increased 550% in the United States following Sunday's show in Las Vegas.


Spotify also said that in the hours leading up to and after the show, “Caught Up,” the first song Usher performed on the night, saw a 2,000%, increase in streams.


Three of his other songs – “U Don’t Have To Call,” “Bad Girl," and "Love In This Club" with Jeezy – saw increases of over 1,000% during the same time period, Spotify said.



It's been an incredibly busy few days for Usher.


On Friday, the 45-year-old dropped "Coming Home," his ninth studio album. The project currently sits at No. 2 on Apple Music's Top 100: Global album chart.


On Sunday night, straight after his Super Bowl performance, Usher then headed to tie the knot with his longtime girlfriend, Jennifer Goicoechea.


According to People, the eight-time Grammy Award winner and Goicoechea pair exchanged vows at Vegas Weddings' Terrace Gazebo, with Usher's mother as their witness.
