Although other versions of Leonard Cohen's most well-known song 'Hallelujah' have charted highly in the US charts over the years, the original has not made an appearance in the Top 100 - until now.

Since Cohen's death, sales and streams of the song have surged, placing it at No. 59 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. Billboard report that it has been streamed 3.8 million times and downloaded 33,000 times in the US over the past week.

Other versions, including a charity version by Justin Timberlake and a version by vocal a cappella group Pentatonix have both charted highly in the past - but never Cohen's original.

Another factor in its boost in popularity may have been Kate McKinnon 's widely-shared rendition of the song on the opening of the first Saturday Night Live since both Cohen's death and Trump's victory.
