Maybe the first week of the first single off her new album. Or, more realistically, returning the favor and singing the chorus of a Dababy song

I don't think album sales have been that huge yet but they'll catch up. It's so impressive to sustain the monentum of a campaign for 13 months+ as she has already without slowing down.

If Liam Payne can claim back all those streams from before the album was even released as '3 million sales', she'll be fine. She must be fairly close to him on streams already, plus has actual sales, and it's clearly got a lot more in the tank left to run.

oh no, I'd rather it was a solo song instead :zombie: maybe something from the "MUCH talked about but nothing has been actually confirmed" re-release

Aww leave her alone. This is way more than most new bitches give us. And for a non-American, she's giving us a whole lot more than others, even IN 2020.

You kids show some respect! Elton John is a bonafide legend

Wish he'd ditch the pop specs, though

Elton John seemingly trying to position himself as pop's Magic Grandpa. Paul McCartney AGOG.

And up to 11 on US Spotify (streaming is where she does the worst).

She looks and sounds great there. This was my favorite song from the album from when I first heard it and I'm so glad its becoming such a big hit for her.

despite the campaign being more than a year and counting now it's only technically her third US single and it's following two hits. but yes it's especially unusual that it's already BIGGER than Break My Heart (by chart placing at least), with top 5 or perhaps even top 3 potential.

Levitating has screamed smash since the album dropped. thank god the Karens got it right. taste!

Has the album done any mildly impressive numbers in the States? Or is our Dua strictly a singles artiste here?

it was just certified platinum this week, but who knows what % of that is sales. the charts are so confusing these days!

No doubt it'll catch up with LP1 soon :eyes:

I know sales are in the shitter but wow. it's done more than that in the UK I'd have thought.

I think her debut did worse in a slightly healthier sales market. Her label seems to be more concerned about radio than album sales in a dying market- I don’t blame them! For comparison, Selena’s latest did 112k with a deluxe re-release package, Chromatica did 329k, and Katy did 61k! Lana did 106k with a ten year old album. QUEEN :eyes:

oh GIRLS calm it, I was just indulging in the wordplay. I text @Pipo yesterday saying she looks good with the weight! we can however acknowledge its existence.

it's not body shaming (or toxic masculinity - ?) to say someone's eating well btw.

Have we heard potential Eurovision entry from Israel that rips this off?

Coming here to post the same thing! Her three top tens are three of the best hits of the past few years imo

Up to #5 in NZ and Australia, new peaks in both; and #5 again midweeks in the UK.

Really has become a nice big hit.
