    I note that Don't Start Now has just fallen out the top 10 after TWENTY FIVE WEEKS.

    And would probably still be there if it hadn't hit ACR last week. Just like Blinding Lights would have returned to #1 had it not similarly fallen victim.

    Apparently Radio 2 have played Levitating suggesting it might be the 4th single. It seems the best option, but I will need a Love Again video at some point.

    Break My Heart is still doing well - currently #34 (+5) on the Hot 100 and top 15 in the UK with top 20/30 peaks across Europe. I am secretly pleased it hasn't outperformed Physical though.

    How has the album performed across Europe?

    Hard to say - it's not currently top 100 in Germany or Netherlands, but is still #5 in France, #6 in Australia, #14 in Belgium & Sweden and #4 in Ireland. It seems to be performing roughly in line with The Weeknd's album in most countries.

    I don't know for sure but I'd hazard a guess that the countries it's no longer charting don't include streaming (Germany definitely doesn't). Sales alone for the album will likely be shit because it came out during lockdown and is now old enough that a lot of shops/supermarkets won't be stocking it in big numbers.

    With a fourth single over summer (I imagine Levitating will do pretty well) it should inch its way to gold in most places before the inevitable reissue comes.

    Probably also worth noting that she's not doing that well on Spotify in Germany either though - currently at #69 (Break My Heart), #70 (Don't Start Now) and #107 (Physical).

    She is ridiculously popular here (the Netherlands). The album is still in the top 3. Peak positions of her singles in our Top 40:

    05 Be the One
    10 Hotter Than Hell
    10 No Lie
    02 Scared to Be Lonely
    01 New Rules
    02 Homesick
    04 IDGAF
    01 One Kiss
    05 Electricity
    02 Don't Start Now
    04 Physical
    02 Break My Heart

    Oh yeah, it's #3, not sub-top 100 :D amazing!

    I do love that the Netherlands and Belgium (my current home country and future home country respectively) stan the shit out of pop music.

    The album is clinging on to the Portuguese top 40 at #40 having peaked at #2. It was #1 in Spain but I don’t think it’s in the top 40 currently.

    Love that this thread has become local correspondents chiming in with hot news of current chart positions in their markets :disco:

    Alexis Jordan’s Happiness is still the 16th most successful song EVER here. Deserved, but quite random.

    That is so RANDOM but my god what a delight of a song. :disco: along with GOOD GIRL :disco:

    Never has an artist had two songs on such a high peak followed by an absolute nadir of an album (and career)

    It's absolutely burning up radio and climbing Spotify so should at the very least go top 20 soon. It's done in the UK though - time to push Levitating here

    I saw some incensed Camila Cabello Twitter fans EXPOSING that Dua Lipa STOLE from INXS for Break My Heart the other day. Scandalous.

    A crime that Break My Heart never broke the Top 20. One of the best songs I've heard in the past 10 years. And never get sick of it.

    I'd go for Love Again over Levitating but i'm always here for more Dua.

    She had about 6 singles from the last album and each one with a proper video, I cannot see why she wouldn't be able to repeat that, especially since she has the budget now :disco:

    The label has said that it's going to be a long campaign. I see no reason why they should have changed their mind yet.

    The only thing is there'll be a reissue later this year and it'd be nice to squeeze out two more singles, with videos, before then - I also hope and pray for a Love Again push.

    I thought "Cool" was the stronger single choice for summer but what do I know.

    Break My Heart has entered the top 10 at US radio, is climbing Spotify and will be Hot 100 top 20 in a week or two... I think it will go top 10, the omens are great. It has the highest "callout scores" (audience feedback) of any song on pop radio right now apparently.

    Don't Start Now is still top 10 at radio and is now one of the 5 most streamed songs of the year there.

    Amazingly enough, Physical is still the #1 most streamed song released by a female artist so far this year (on Spotify). And she just grabbed the #2 spot as well with Break My Heart.

    IDGAF just became her third song to hit a billion streams, and Don't Start Now will become her fourth soon, making her the only female (I believe) with four 1b+ streaming smashes. :o

    What a queen :disco: Gagged at how big IDGAF has become, I didn’t even realise!

    To think we live in a world where Love Again - Hallucinate - Cool would be an AMAZING run of singles, yet it’s possible NONE of those songs will get the single treatment :o

    The vinyl is pink rather than purple and it's absolutely stunning. :disco: still need to get a player to actually play it on mind you.

    "Break My Heart" is top five on pop radio in America, and should reach #4 in a few days. A second consecutive number one isn't out of the question, it's gaining on everything ahead of it.
