Hozier snagged his first Hot 100 No. 1 on the Billboard songs chart dated April 27, 2024, as “Too Sweet” ascended from No. 2 to the summit. To celebrate, the Irish singer-songwriter shared a sweet message to fans on social media.

“I want to say a huge, huge thank you to all of the supporters, all the fans around the world,” he shared in the short clip, posted to X (formerly known as Twitter) on Monday (April 22). “It’s absolutely staggering. I’m taken massively by surprise by it, and I want to say thank you for your support. I’m so thrilled that you’re enjoying ‘Too Sweet,’ and it means the world to me.”

“A huge thank you for all the incredible support from around the world,” the caption reads. “#TooSweet has reached #1 in the US, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and #1 for a second week in the UK and Ireland. It means the world that you’re enjoying this song so much. Thank you all.”

The single, which Hozier co-wrote and co-produced, rises 2-1 to become his first leader on the Streaming Songs chart; dips to No. 5 from its No. 3 high on Digital Song Sales; and debuts at No. 42 on Radio Songs. The song was first widely heard via a teaser snippet during Hozier’s March 6 appearance on the How Long Gone podcast, ahead of its proper release March 22 on his four-track EP Unheard.
