Kate Bush is amassing millions from her song being used in Netflix series

British singer-songwriter, Kate Bush, is making millions after her song ‘Running up that hill (a deal with God)’ re-entered the charts.

The song re-entered the charts after it was featured in season 4 of Netflix series ‘Stranger Things’.

“Stranger Things 4 — Volume 1″ debuted in May 2022, and has since amassed a total of 883 million hours viewed for the platform. That makes it Netflix’s most popular English-language TV show ever. It’s been No. 1 on Netflix’s English top 10 list all four weeks since it premiered.

According to estimates, Bush made over $2 million just from streaming between June 16 and 23.

Bush will also make money on physical and digital sales of her music. And because she’s the only songwriter listed on the single, she’ll receive all of the radio airplay revenue.

Bush recently thanked the Duffer brothers who are the show’s creators, for “Running Up That Hill’s” renewed popularity.
