Do you hear that? Probably not, but a 10-minute silent song is climbing the charts.
Samir Mezrahi’s track “A a a a a Very Good Song,” which features no sound, costs $0.99, and lasts one-ninth the running time of The Dark Tower, currently sits at No. 51 on iTunes, coming in just behind rap superstar Kendrick Lamar’s “HUMBLE.”
On Wednesday, Mezrahi explained the reasoning behind his unique hit. “Hey I released a blank song that will play 1st so that *one* song won’t play every time u plug ur phone into ur car,” he tweeted.
The early success of “A a a a a Very Good Song” has Mezrachi setting his sights on taking down the powerhouse “Despacito,” which has topped the Billboard charts for 13 consecutive weeks.
