According to SiriusXM’s VP of electronic and dance music programming by the name of Geronimo tells Billboard, “Myles Shear, Kygo and Frank Walker’s manager asked me to check out ‘Heartbreak Back’ as he felt like it was a perfect BPM song. It just took one listen for me to realize that this would work well for our audience. We did an edit of the song where we added an instrumental intro and then made it a ‘BPM Breaker,’ which is a category that we created to help break new artists and music. After five weeks the song was researching top three with our audience and we are still seeing growth.”
