In less than a day, it's become clear that Rezhami's trick is resonating with a lot of people - his tweet announcing the track has over 12,000 likes. Right now it sits at #67, ahead of tunes by artists like Kendrick Lamar, Kesha, Selena Gomez, The Chainsmokers and a number of other popular, well-established acts.
