    70k is what Shallow sold pre-album release (12k+58k).
    For albums certifications is 1/10, so 7k units. Not 70k.

    I don’t think RIAA is making exceptions with user generated videos...

    I think YouTube official videos and audios of the ASIB add around 1.7 billion.
    20% of that coming from US = 340 million views = 226k units. Plus pre-album sales and streams, 250k max, imo.

    2,192,000 + 250,000 = 2,442,000

    When I said 2.5M I was making a rough, rounded estimation. (And your number, 2,592,000, is almost 100k higher anyway).

      Same could have been said for Shallow/Poker Face last year, so never underestimate big acts.

        You have your estimates and I have mine, nobody knows the correct number, because we don't know if really only official views count for the certificates (it's in the rules, but we know how the industry works), and also, we don't know if only 20% of total views come from the US.

        I didn't just talk about Shallow's pure sales first week (70k) but its SPS, which encompasses the first week's pure sales + audio and video streams. Estimates are estimates, the only exact number I provided is Billboard units.

          And what about it? Your comparison was meaningless, because my point was that when she released Hello, Adele came from 21 and had all that hype around her back in the day, now she comes from 25, an album that was inferior in both sales and impact compared to 21, and she has huge and real chances of not repeating a big hit like Hello was. The situation between her and Gaga is also not comparable as Gaga had a big successful movie to promote Shallow, although that's not the real reason why Shallow became so huge. I'm not underestimating Adele's power, i'm just saying the truth.

          • Still, she sold more than 20m copies with that "inferior" album, with a good lead single, it will outsell Shallow and other big hits in 2-3 weeks.

              This is just an unsupported assumption, by the way, we're in a topic about Lady Gaga's A Star Is Born era, not about something related to Adele, can you stay on topic? Thanks.

                It was actually about Shallow's chances of being #1 on Swiss Year End Charts. Nothing is guaranteed at this point.

                • It's easier to sell a lot if you have a period of a whole year instead of just a few months or weeks, but yes, technically, a song could become the No. 1 seller of the year with just one week. Think of something like 'Candle In The Wind', 'Only Time' or 'Time To Say Goodbye': Tragedies can help a single selling a lot of copies in a very short time. Or a very big and unexpected comeback...
                  Is it offensive to fall in love with you and everything you do
                  and everything you stand for?
                  Could I break through your invisible wall, could I hide my pride for once,
                  just to tell you that I see more?

                        You tried to use Adele, but you failed because even Hello wasn't #1 at Switzerland's year-end, besides the fact that she's not guaranteed to comeback this year. Shallow has big chances to get the #1. Let's stay on topic now.

                          Do you know if Sweet But Psycho became recurrent? I guess so.

                              Unfortunately it will leave the chart with 52 weeks, as it has no strength to return to the top 25. A whole year on the chart just like Poker Face, absolutely amazing.

                                • Will she start a new era while ASIB is still going strong or will she let this one die out before new music? I'd say ASIB will do great during Christmas period.

                                  • ^ I think she will release the lead single later this year with the album coming early 2020, probably around February. So the new album could still benefit from ASIB's success (Grammys hype; she'll be nominated and has something new out = perfect timing for promo) and ASIB has still room to 'breathe' during Christmas.

                                          No but the August report is not out yet so maybe it will include other certifications for her

                                          • Hello everybody.

                                            I need your help!

                                            It worked last time for ARUTW (And Shallow)

                                            I just tweeted Spotify France for them to add INLA in the playlist "Hits du moment"

                                            It's the third single here in France.

                                            Can you all please RT this tweet?
