    Let's rename this thread Midweeks 2019 and have a separate one for the chart and sales?

    I'm sure she'll sell hundreds more at £4 :side-eye:

    I think enough time has passed that I can admit this.

    I have neither purchased nor streamed Emma Bunton’s album in full.

    The new songs were nice enough but the clips I heard of the covers just made me very sad.

    But it's only £4 now VoR. Think of how much that could mean to her children this Christmas... :(

    The #1 album on cassette last week was Mabel, who sold 51 copies. Surely there are enough Spice loons left to take advantage of Bunton's generous offering and get her an official album chart #1.

    Grim.

    Is streaming likely to topple Slipknot?

    5 years ago this would have been straight in at number one. With streaming I was worried it would stall at #9 or something, so glad to see it really taking off. Not sure #1 is possible though.

    Those midweeks are missing streaming data for Sunday, and Whitney has been #15 on Spotify the last couple of days, so presumably she'll suffer when all data is included.

    Oh dear, is Mabel doing a Madame X? I mean I was rather tempted with the make-up kit and waterbottle bundle on her website..

    Shura likely to miss the top forty, and Ride to 5? What a bizarre world.

    Why is Beverley Craven back in the iTunes Top 40 with Promise Me? I have not heard that song in YEARS, and although it is not exactly setting the charts alight it does seem odd that is cropping up at #34.

    Ride will be out of the 100 tomorrow - total fanbase purchase with minimal streaming.

    I bought it. It's really good. But Ride turned up when I was 16 and blew me away when I was 17. I''m their target market, essentially.

    Is Whitney going to be number one anytime soon? That’s all I care about chart wise at the moment...

    She's been #1 on sales for three weeks now. 19k behind Sheeran this week.

    The video was only recently released as well. That’s sure to help.

    I know this is ANOTHER sale vs. streaming discussion but...

    There’s always been a bit of discrepancy in the chart with songs that didn’t necessarily reach #1 but sold well/more in the long-term being better remembered.

    I wonder if this current era is going to be defined more greatly by songs that were #1 on pure sales but didn’t top the chart overall.

    Or maybe it’s just ME and the circles I gravitate to in terms of social media. But this certainly isn’t the first time recently where a song like Kygo and Whitney feels MUCH MORE POPULAR than whatever Ed Sheeran actual-or-similar-sounding-song is at #1 for the UMPTEENTH WEEK IN A ROW.

    It surprises me just how far Whitney is behind him.

    He really can quite frankly do one.

    I don't think so, if only for the fact that the level of pure sales is so low now.

    Whitney sold 6,431 (Sheeran 5,354) last week. She'd still be #3 if Mendes/Cabello hadn't been moved to ACR and therefore plunged out of the top ten.

    That ACR thing is a pile of shite as well - if you need enforced clear-outs, there's something wrong with yr whole system.

    Never mind the fact that it doesn't really work anyway. Or at least it just clogs things up a little lower down.

    As a sort-of-related sidenote, it’s also worth pointing out that Post Malone has the third biggest streaming album of the year - despite it not actually being released until next week.

    I don’t follow his career closely enough to know how that can be the case, but I guess he’s released enough singles/instant-grat tracks to have enough already available to count towards the album chart without detracting from the singles.

    Again, that seems like a fundamentally flawed model.

    That's just fucking stupid. As I said a long time ago - when I bought a single back in the day by, say for example, Blur, the OCC/Gallup/whoever was doing it at the time didn't add a percentage onto the sales of the parent album at the same time. The lack of separation is what's making the album chart so ridiculous.

    It's all a fucking FARCE! This made me laugh today:

    https://www.officialcharts.com/char...op-100-motown-songs-of-the-millennium__27106/

    Somehow, rather than reverting to any sort of meaningful chart in celebration of Motown's 60th Birthday, the BBC/Chart Company decided to do a top 100 songs based solely on sales since 2000, so basically streams and downloads.

    Apparently, Stevie Wonder's "Superstition" is now a fucking million seller, just from "sales" since the year 2000- a period in which it has not once entered the charts, "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" is third, despite it only being a number 80 hit ever.

    The chart contains four Christmas songs- three by the Jackson Five, I bet the latter two of which are fuelled by just following on from people playing "Santa Claus is Coming To Town" and Spotify carrying on with the album.

    JUST FUCK OFF.
