    Of course Harry is the one with the most TALANT but Zayn is probably the most beautiful man on earth. So there is that.

    This is really harsh.

    On Niall only.

    I do, but only in a 7 kind of way. Not sure I've listened to it all since around April though - but it's clearly one of those albums which will pay repeat visits when others perhaps burn more brightly but for a shorter period.

    What's more interesting though is him. He's become genuinely quite compelling, and I'm curious to see where he goes next.

    I should say I do really like Niall too, he’s definitely a local star.

    Niall seems lovely. I’d take him home to my mum for sure.

    wow



    a true smash :disco:

    could you link to the list?

    It's #10 by this metric (US, sales not SPS)

    Surprised to learn Future Nostalgia is "only" #7 - I'd be interested to see what it's sold, also in actual pure copies rather than streams. Thanks @lolly

    Yes, I was surprised by that as well. But she's #2 behind Eminem in terms of albums released this year, and his album has been out nearly twice as long in that sales window.

    Maybe I need to pay it a re-listen but I remember Heartbreak Weather being dull as dishwater and I usually eat up that shit. Fine Line still slaps.

    As much as I love the song, I never expected "Watermelon Sugar" to hit the Hot 100 top ten. It's also really unusual these days for a post-album single to do that... I can't think of another recent example other than "Say So", and before that, probably "I Like It" by Cardi B.

    I wonder if it has a chance for #1. The charts are so confusing these days.

    I really enjoy most of Heartbreak Weather, but Fine Line is on another level for me.

    Small Talk, Black and White and Bend The Rules are better than anything Styles has ever released.

    but you can't really expect everyone to have taste.

    Watermelon Sugar climbed to #4 on Friday to make a new peak. And Fine Line spends a 34th consecutive week in the top ten.

    The seven other solo One Direction albums (including his first) have spent nine weeks in the top ten between them

    No surprise his album sales are as flaccid as his fans.

    Can we please not contaminate Harry Syles' thread? Thanks

    Anyway - I think I need that splatter vinyl in my life. @wurst - you must have this on vinyl no? Is it a nice pressing?

    Confirmed by music week yesterday to be the #2 album of the year so far with 218,993 copies in 2020. #1 being Lewis Capaldi with 376,138. No other albums mentioned.

    Dreadful sales figures. Only one album platinum, and that a holdover from spring last year.

    Sales are indeed garbage. Dua must be in the high 160-200k region off of like four major hits at this point. In 2010 she'd be triple platinum by now.
