    Indeed. Moves up to #5 this week:

    Dua Lipa's "Don't Start Now" rises 6-5 on the Hot 100, marking her first top five hit. Her sole prior top 10, "New Rules," reached No. 6 in February 2018. "Start" also becomes Lipa's second No. 1 on the Pop Songs airplay ranking, after "Rules" reigned for four weeks, also in February 2018.

    unless the double lipped one is spreading fake news on youtube, don't start now is now up to number 3 on the billboard hot 100.

    just you wait for autumn when physical will start its very own speed of light ascent to the top!

    Don't Start Now is the rarest of pop songs - the kind of instant 10 that somehow just gets better with time and exposure. Every live rendition has been great, every arrangement brings out something new - it's quite simply a classic.

    Seeing it at #3 on the Hot 100 feels like some kind of fever dream. When does female pop this good (and this gay) ever dominate globally like this?

    She is truly a gift. :disco: (and if you'd told me 6 months ago I'd ever say that about Dua Lipa I'd laugh in your face)

    I can't believe it has a chance of being #1! Stream while at home my quarantine queens!

    Woah, number 2 in the States is INSANE! I guess this has now leapfrogged noted smash hits New Rules AND One Kiss as her biggest single?

    The album leaked this morning in HQ.

    It's a solid affair. I just listened once but the two singles are clearly the best things here. Everything else is on-theme but relatively subdued. I'd say it has maybe four fillers. The final two tracks feel weirdly like they came from a totally different, much worse album. The Moopy doola peeps will be here for Levitating, Love Again and Hallucinate though.

    That's a lack of hyperbole I'm not sure I'm here for.

    Relatively subdued is not what I was expecting. :(

    There's just nothing really balls-out in the way Physical is. That's very much the exception here. Most of it has a similar tempo and is nicely produced but decidedly unadventurous.

    Figures these are two of some of my favorites on the album :D

    "Good in Bed" is the 2020 Lily Allen moment we didn't need but I quite inexplicably like it.

    "Pretty Please", "Break My Heart" are "Hallucinate" ("MA-MA-MA-POKER FACE" anyone :eyes: ) are quite nice on first listen, but overall, I agree that it's a mild let down.

    Fair enough. It's leaked, everyone's at home and all the shops are shut anyway so LP/CD sales are screwed - time to get that captive audience a-streaming.

    #6 of the year so far according to the OCC. No sales figure given, but it does state #5 (Own It) has sold 550k, so hopefully not too far behind that.

    Surely it must be very close to a million now?
