    It's actually growing ON me. It is "slight" but it's also slightly great so hey ho. Surprised it's actually becoming a (slight) HIT though...

    Is she likely to climb on the chart tomorrow then?

    It was down to #24 in the midweeks. But she has climbed on both Spotify and iTunes since then, so who knows?

    Now sitting at #10 on the UK Radio Airplay charts:

    It is the greatest gainer this week (+26), Gaga's first appearance in the UK airplay top 10 since Applause.

    I can only assume the sales turnaround earlier this week was due to increased airplay. Spotify chart not updated yet.

    This is almost my favourite Gaga song since Venus.

    What a load of shit that video is. When I saw the flowing fabric I had hopes it would evolve into this:

    Nearly spot on love, 7/10. Just no need to mention Katy Perry here, she has her own topics for that. :)

    Down to #13 on iTunes. Down to #31 on Spotify UK. But up to 189k streams.

    Too many charts and chart components to keep track of - is it a HIT?

    Let's put it this way: it's not a proper hit YET, but its early performance is definitely promising.
    It's the first time ever she gets solid streaming numbers, she's gained millions of monthly listeners on Spotify since its release. Plus she hadn't received that much airplay in the UK since Applause, nearly 4 years ago.
    If radios keep spinning it and if the upcoming video gets a good response (outside of the gayz), I think it may become a proper summer hit. If not, at least she will have finally managed to build up her status on the streaming front (her Spotify numbers were TRAGIC until The Cure).

    I guess in the next 2 or 3 weeks.
    Of course a promo spot would be nice too, but it's not really necessary nowadays. She promoted Million Reasons on X-Factor, Allan Carr, and couldn't even push it past 160k in the UK. If the song's destined to sell, it will without performances too.

    iTunes #8 now. It had fallen out of the top ten again down to #14 over the last few days, so something has booted it back :disco:

    4 days at #1 on US iTunes and still NOT a hit?

    Somewhere out there Tamar Braxton is infuriated by this notion.

    Full Hot 100 chart-run so far:
    39-62-55
    It will probably go up a few places this week. In contrast to the UK, the song hasn't received much airplay yet in the US (it's only the 92nd most played song at the moment), which makes it impossible for it to aim for top 30.

    I've now been informed that's a lyric video. When is the real one dropping? I want something ultra extravagant as the only thing basic about this song is that it's basically amazing.

    non mover at #26 on Spotify UK, 195k streams.

    I imagine she may climb a couple of places in the chart tonight.

    Well she's climbing on both sales and streaming, and has just been C listed at Radio One. She's still got momentum.

    Bitch needs a good quality video AND one or two well thought promo spots, if she wants more than just a "lukewarm hit".
    Silver certification is in the bag, but this has the potential for gold if she plays her cards right.

    I guess that wasn't totally clear from the lyrics emblazoned all over the video from beginning to end... :D
