    a non-top 10 debut for anyone is not a "fail" unless you're Ed Sheeran, it's 2019, these things take time

    I was just thinking if this is a lead single, it would be compared to their last lead single, which was in 2018 was a #2. Has it changed so much since 20018? if so, educate me cos I cant keep up and the chartz are oh so confusing :D

    Woman Like Me debuted at #5 and didn't reach #2 until its third week. And then had five weeks in the top 3. This clearly isn't going to open as big as that, but I wouldn't write it off yet (although I'd quite like to).

    They haven't troubled the Top 20 since Woman Like Me, either.

    They seemed to just disappear after releasing LM5 - maybe politics over the label shift?

    It's been a very strange time. The last album seemed to come out of nowhere, with stuff all promotion then a second single thrown out with again bugger all promotion or fanfare...and now the album seems to have been ditched.

    Chart-wise they are doing fine. #17 on day one and #30 on day two is still a good result, just not quite the old days of shooting right into the top 5. But you can't stay in your imperial era forever, so pretty understandable I'd say.

    Depending on total sales for the week (e.g. whether it does 7k or 15k etc) will probably determine its position, but I'd say it'll be somewhere around #10.

    This is what I meant. I really liked the single they released after Woman Like Me (so much I can’t remember what it’s called now :DAF:). I do much prefer the bubblegum pop sound they were rocking before with Shout Out To My Ex though.

    #2 in midweeks. Not sure if data is missing, and I imagine it'll fall a bit (as it's now lower on all platforms), but still a solid start

    That must be missing streaming data, surely...

    Yeah I’d say so -it’s only on 13k after three days which I doubt the number two will only be on that. Only 500 ahead of #5 as well, so I’d assume with data added by tomorrow it’ll be lower top ten?

    They all look pretty unrecognisable from their early days. Sure it was years ago but it’s kinda sad to see how much they have changed. Some of them more than others. And not naturally. But it’s their bodies so they can do what they like.

    It doesn't SOUND like you think they can do what they like

    I don’t study them THAT closely but to me they all just look like they’re in good health.

    Do they really look THAT different? Or at least significantly more so than most young women ageing from late teens and very early twenties to their mid/late twenties.

    I've just googled their 'stunning makeover' from The Sun at the weekend. She's still very recognisably her in that. And she's only a quarter of the group.

    Everytime Little Mix have tried to do their passion projects like Salute and LM5 yes they are are generally superior and more adult but it's not the brand the general public looks for with them.

    Theres a reason they go bright and poppy and colourful after a less successful era.
