The Super Mario movie is a success, but Bowser with his “Peaches” managed to outclass the plumber and all the his allies.
The song dedicated to Princess Peach, which is actually splendid even in the plush version (you can find it on Amazon), immediately made its way into the hearts of the spectators.
There are those who immediately wanted to try and see the effect that “Peaches” would have in the Nintendo 64 version, complete with rendering of Bowser and Peach faithful to the aesthetics of the time.
And always for the beauty of the song and the performance of Jack Black in as the King of the Koopas, Bowser has also earned the title of fan favorite character.
A performance that in addition to being beautiful is also profitable because, as reported by a study, “Peaches” has already earned a decent amount of money.
With nearly 15 million streams on Spotify , Bowser’s “Peaches” generated approximately $74k dollars in revenue from the song.
The streaming service pays songwriters $0.005 for every play of its song, and with a total of 14,953,168 plays worldwide, the song has generated exactly $74,765.84 in royalties alone from Spotify.
The music video for the song, released two days after the film, has over 15 million views on YouTube and is currently in the fifth placed on the music trends page.
“Peaches” has definitely become the most popular song of the Super Mario movie soundtrack, followed only by “Mario Brothers Rap”, with over 1 million of plays on Spotify.
Throughout all of this Jack Black also paid off, who debuted at position 83 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. A profit that goes hand in hand with that of the film which, currently, is the best feature film ever among those inspired by video games.
We’ll see if success will come for Luigi too, since we’re already starting to talk about a spin-off film dedicated to him.
