Maybe french don't want to PARTY IN FRANCE ?
Rubbish. France's singles chart is fucking DEAD! It takes nothing to get a fan based chart topper these days- ask MYLENE FARMER who is on about her 12th
Well then that rather supports my suggestion that they still didn't include downloads yet!
My bad, I just checked and downloads are indeed included. At one point last year "Call Me Maybe" was #1 with 6900 copies sold. So yes, woeful sales in France
Does anyone know how sales are in Sweden? I think people have stopped buying music here. We all have Spotify and almost everything is available there as soon as it's available on iTunes. Some albums are available even before the official release date.
Indeed. They do include downloads now but loon sales for the likes of Mylene Farmer (who releases everything on 2xCD, 12" and usually something else and has a massive fan base) sees most of her singles entering at the top and crashing the next week...
Swedish sales are terrible as well for singles- iTunes is VERY VERY VERY low and I can't imagine there's a large market for the physical cd there.
Ooh La La sold 200k+ copies in SK in it's first week ALONE.
Wrong topic love.
In that case it means sales in smaller markets are next to non-existent. I've seen somewhere that Sweden (along with the likes of Spain, Italy and Netherlands) belong to the second biggest group. All those itunes #1 lists now seem ridiculuous!
And I don't think cd singles are available here anymore. We hardly have any music stores left.
(My last purchase was Hard Candy (at the time of its release). )
It never surprised me that sales in many European countries were low because they never seemed to have retail CDs in the same way as the US and UK. Indeed I think I can only recall visiting one CD shop (outside of the airport) on my European holidays that wasn't an independent store or a market stall.
I do wonder why there wasn't ever a slight uplift with the introduction of iTunes though...
Oh sorry bbz x
I LOVE this showboating little queen!
That is actually brilliant
In the 90s a single had to sell 50,000 copies to go gold here. Now that's 10,000, but sales have gone up again recently. Last year there were about 80 singles that went at least gold.
Sweden is certainly all about Spotify, and having an official no. 1 hit there now really is indicative of genuine success and popularity, unlike when the singles chart was sales based.
I know the situation isn't quite that extreme here, but if the surge in singles sales recently in the UK holds, I'm wondering if we ought to go back to the certification thresholds we had until the early 90s.
I was recently wondering whether the "million seller" will soon become a bit of a defunct achievement. It will always be a landmark, of course, but you used to be able to go down that list and know that each track was a behemoth of its time. Some still are, but it feels like less and less of a select group.
CD shopping in Sweden is so depressing. There was ONE tiny little CD section in Åhlens and a small record store last time I was in Malmö and loads of recently released chart albums were nowhere to be seen.
The local artists must be entirely reliant on live work for an income these days.
Applause OUT of the iTunes top 10 for the first time since its release 8 weeks and 1 day ago. It had a pretty good run but now it's time for single two.
Yes, I refuse to believe that article where it said that Germany had overtaken the UK as a bigger music market. Applause has had a pretty much identical run in both markets however it has sold 4 times as much in the UK...
It did better (in the US) than I ever could have hoped.
"Applause" keeps growing on U.S radio, sitting comfortably at #6 on Pop.
May well overtake track-of-life "Born This Way"'s audience impressions in the next two days:
#01 - Bad Romance: 118.946m
#02 - Poker Face: 117.042m
#03 - Born This Way: 109.827m
#04 - Applause: 107.433m
#05 - The Edge Of Glory: 106.169m
#06 - Paparazzi: 104.897m
#07 - Just Dance: 104.084m
#08 - Telephone: 92.780m
#09 - LoveGame: 88.868m
#10 - Alejandro: 81.988m
#11 - You and I: 65.121m
#12 - Judas 36.919m
#13 - Marry The Night: 35.648m
I think this is my all-time Gaga track of CHOIX
Back in the iTunes top 10
Steady as she goes
On this week's digital chart, Lady Gaga's "Applause" descends 6-9 with 109,000 (down 18%).
1,340,000 total, should go 2x platinum by early next year once she starts promoting again and with the Christmas iTunes voucher boost, and could inch its way to 3x plat if the longevity is really there.
She just needs to reconquer Europe and Australia now with that second single.
Back up to 9
Still growing on U.S airplay and back at #7 on I-Tunes
#9 LADY GAGA – Applause: 113.760m AI (+ 1.467)
What's the US chart run so far?
Applause is her third biggest US Radio hit isn't it now - only behind Poker Face and Bad Romance
Hard to tell given how much Mediabase has expanded its panel these last one or two years but it has definitely done well

Back up a spot to 8 on the Hot 100, and now 1.44m sold. I've realised I now love and live for the song. Especially the cooey falsetto part of the middle 8
This song has had bigger (bow) legs than even I expected.
I genuinely think it's an immense pop song.
Applause rises one spot at #9 and celebrates its 14th week inside the US top 10!
What's the chart run now?
I wonder why she's done so little to promote Applause outside of the US? Aside from consolidating her US profile a bit, I don't really understand the thinking.
Time I suppose. She's too busy faffing around with the ART to be bothered with the POP.
I wish you'd have come out of retirement to promote Do What You Want for R Kelly and Gags, RB. And Applause too.
