I think a very / moderate succesful single = postive album salesarab wrote:POC could be a successfull single, but it won't affect on album sales IMO.

It could be an OK hit but if it could really offer the push they need? Not sure...I'm really surprised that USA doesn't support them this era. Few discounts(including $0.25 deal), Grammys performance, Good Morning America...damn, I don't get it.Nackar wrote:But yeah, the drops in the US are disappointing. It's quite funny to see how, this era, the UK seems to be the most supportive of the two whereas during VLV the US was more supportive. Although considering the album is now slightly above 1 million in both nations and the UK has a fifth of the inhabitants... doing those little calculations always remind me how much healthier the UK market is
As I said before, I only want them to sell another 500k in UK and US 500k in other countries(5.5mln this year and 6mln mark next year). Tour starts pretty soon, so there's still a for stable sales(especially in US)
Yes the UK market is healthier but don't forget that the UK chart run is also better .Nackar wrote:Although considering the album is now slightly above 1 million in both nations and the UK has a fifth of the inhabitants... doing those little calculations always remind me how much healthier the UK market is

It stayed more than half a year on many Singles Charts, including the US, Australia, Germany and the UK and reached top-ten-positions in many countries. Plus, it's been a successful airplay-hit in Europe.
Of course it wasn't the Party Rock Anthem/Rolling In The Deep-meaning of big, but seriously, not every single has to reach their level to be called big... It should be measured by an artist's standards and I'd say it stands at No. 2 just behind Viva La Vida, don't you agree?
Worldwide + considering sales AND airplay. It was big in some countries, lingered in others. US, a big market with a fifth + of their album's sales was not a market in which the single had great or even moderate airplay. Still, a great song that should have done so much better.danbarj wrote:("Paradise" is moderate at best WW considering sales AND airplay)
In Germany this was released as a single yesterday.kpilkington86 wrote:Radio Edit of PoC:
