    • Dancing Queen is the 104t Best Selling Single of All Time in the UK (Physical and Download)

      https://www.officialcharts.com/chart...-chart__21298/

      Comment


      • ^ That would indicate Physical/Download sales of just under 1.2m for no. 104.

        In the print edition of Music Week today they gave a figure of 1,213,667 for CHASING CARS at no. 91.

        So how come some posters are saying that Dancing Queen had 1.56m pure sales by 07/11/21? Surely that figure includes streams?

        Dancing Queen was not included in the OCC best sellers from the 70s. (No. 10 sold 1.33m)

          That figure came from the same source as yours: the OCC!

          https://www.officialcharts.com/chart...-songs__26113/

          It reads a little missunderstandable (in particular for me as a non english native speaker). Are 1.56 m pure sales and 100m streams the same as 1.56m pure sales plus 100m streams or 1.56m pure sales including 100m streams?

          Comment


          • That OCC article is obviously wrong as it contradicts this week’s updated OCC stats. Position no. 104 does not indicate sales of 1.56m. And it did not appear in the 70s decade of hits based on physical sales (most agree that downloads are included but not streams).

            We await a further ABBA report in the future.

            • Dancing Queen.

              My understanding is that physical sales are around 920k.

              It is certified 1.2 million for digital sales (download and streams). For it to have sold 1.2m it would have sold about 0 3m in downloads and 0.9m in stream equivalent sales. Possible

              Grand tota of ohysical + digital is l 2.1m but some of that is streams. 1.5m woIld be possible for physical + downloads

              We just don't have the download/stream breakdown. There does seem a contrwdiction between 1.2m in new list and 1.56m in a previous list.

                          This is so sweet. They deserved respects. Finally comes to the reality. If they win this is one of the biggest wins in pop history after so much drought of recognition in all the years.
                          Madonna is the queen of pop and the biggest selling female music artist of all time!

                              I have to make amends (at least in this case): the words of praise that the American music critic for The Times, Jon Caramanica, spends for Voyage, give some little hope for a chance of win.

                              • Why is Don't Shut Me Down eligible for a nomination? Surely it's year was last year when I Still Have Faith in You received a nomination.


                                Voyage, like Adele's 30 missed the nomination deadline last year so are nominated this year.

                                • UK CHARTS

                                  Gold
                                  Main #18 (17)
                                  Sales #20 (27)
                                  Physical #22 (29)

                                  The #16 sold 3,900. So estimated sales for Gold I gather to be 3,700-3,800. Maybe a fraction up on last week's 3,700 despite dropping a chart position. A Top 20 sales chart position would suggest pure sales of near 1,000.

                                  Voyage
                                  Sales #71 (83)
                                  Physical #69 (83)


                                  Slight upturn for Voyage. Yay!

                                    I was surprised the song that got the nomination was ISHFIY and not DSMD. I've always thought the latter is far better.

                                    • GOLD is now very close to 6.2m in the UK. From next week on it definitely will take less than 100k on the road to 21*platinum.

                                      • Today Chiquitita will surpass the 200m streams on Spotify as it takes just 92k to do so. It will be ABBA's 8th song with more than 200m streams. Tomorrow Super Trouper will join that club as number 9 as just 131k are missing yet. Both songs have a daily streaming rate of more than 100k (Chiquitita does better than Super Trouper).

                                          • Probably a few dozen in the UK for Voyage. The same for Sweden where it climbs from #18 to #13 in the physical charts.

                                            • Gold is on 177,000 for 2022 in the year in the UK- a ccording to Vicapper. Will probably just miss the 200k amount.

                                              Currently 11th best seller of year but only 250 behind the #10, Divide by Ed Sheeran.

                                                    This month, both 'Chiquitita' and 'Super Trouper' surpass the mark of 200 million streams, with the former overtaking the latter.
                                                    'Angeleyes' continues to climb and overtakes 'Fernando'; however, its increase in streaming numbers becomes smaller and smaller from month to month (on a high level).
                                                    Both 'Ring Ring' and 'If It Wasn't for the Nights' surpass the mark of 30 million streams and debut at numbers 29 & 30, respectively.

                                                    Next month, 'Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!' will come close to or even surpass 500 million streams.
                                                    'Angeleyes' will very likely move up one place, surpassing 'Voulez-Vous'.
