    #21 this week, so bloody close. However it reaches a new peak of #27 on Spotify today so potentially into the top 20 next week.

    The way she continually riffs off whatever Gaga was doing ten years ago is quite something :D that sounds potentially brilliant.

    C Listed on Radio One today. About 6 weeks after it left the Radio Two A List :o

    It's #18 in midweeks so I guess they've finally realised it is now a genuine hit and have been forced to give it some spins. Still hanging early 30's on Spotify and Apple Music so be interesting to see if this gives it another little kick.

    It's also up to 42 on Spotify global with 1.5m streams a day - 107m so far. Salt has 142m. She's low-key really quite successful :D

    Yeah it's finally gaining traction in Canada and the US, hitting the chart in Canada and the bubbling under in the US this week. Such an odd song to do it, over such an extended period so far, but I'm HERE FOR IT :disco:

    Just top 40 for this would be amazing, but I can see it blowing up on radio eventually.

    Salt is my favorite I think. I would say its time has come and gone, but who knows with her songs actually?

    I think this might be Ava's MAX track so far.

    The little guitar solo after the second chorus that is woven into the last 15 seconds is actually pretty euphoric stuff. Pretty short at 2:42 but it does make you hit repeat.

    What's going on with Who's Laughing Now? Was that just a buzz release in the end?

    It's starting to make moves in Norway, Switzerland and Germany. It's just taking off slowly, like all her singles do.

    A List on radio 2 now. Be interesting to see if the streaming sites touch it as the album drops, Kings & Queens really turned into a proper hit for her.

    Her career trajectory is very weird thus far and all the more engaging because of it. Loving how she's fully leaning into the 10 years old full on pop vibe and am GAGGING for more faceless but fabulous bops.

    She's had quite a bit of criticism for ripping off Gaga. But that shit was 12 years ago and she was 14!

    It's APPRECIATION not APPROPRIATION!

    Sometimes Gaga would have done well to rip herself off in the past couple of years but instead of Fame Monster-esque bangers she gave people ART! in POP!
