    • Now all we need to do is pray Beyoncé doesn’t drop a single/album before Friday, otherwise Kate should have this in the bag - absolutely incredible.

        #ChartFact

        K-Pop icons BTS have just released their first Anthology album, PROOF, featuring a selection of old and new tracks - including their biggest hit in the UK, disco-pop banger Dynamite (2020) which has 745,000 UK chart sales to date.

          What’s rare is for a song to capture the public’s imagination in the way Running Up That Hill has. It’s possibly the first time (outside of Christmas) that the chart rules have been tested to such an extent and they’ve been found wanting.

            Beyoncé in UK doesn't have a solo effort TOP 10 for over 10 years and her latest #01 was her featuring on Lady Gaga "Telephone" in 2010. already (12 years ago!)



            During the 10's after that song her hightest peak song in UK was "Runnin" where she was featured in 2015 #04, and also her only other UK TOP 5 HIT during the 2010's decade.

            https://www.officialcharts.com/artist/12465/beyonce/

            In US she could harm Kate becoming #01 on Hot 100 but still need a huge artist featuring on her song as well as like in UK her solo efforts aren't going not even TOP 10 in Hot 100 for already 6 years (when "Formation" peaked at #10) and her latest solo effort #01 was"Single Ladies" in 2008.

              If Bey surprise drops a single on all streaming platforms tomorrow, as the lead from a new studio album, it could be huge - and she hasn’t actually released a lead single to a studio album to all streaming platforms in a streaming era.

                But her streaming numbers are even lower than Shakira... if Shakira can't even chart on UK Single Charts since 2014 and have higher streams you really believe Beyoncé can? Her latest songs and OST The Gift did quite poorly on streaming in UK doing better on iTunes.

                "The Gift" sold less than 1000 equivalent albums during the first week of release to be #20 in Compilations charts dropping to #89 the following week... despite peaking #02 in US (Where it sold 54k equivalent sales during first week).

                "The Lion King" OST (that only have 2 Beyoncé songs) did peak #07 in UK Compilation Charts on 3rd week on the charts but "The Gift" only spent 2 weeks on Compilations TOP 100 Chart.

                Her live "Homecoming" album peaked #25 in UK but was #04 in US

                Her streaming numbers in UK aren't that high and if it would drop today she would have only 3 days of streaming (not even a full week)!
                She will be lucky if she gets to TOP 40 in UK.

                "Formation" in UK peaked at #31 only!

                    Agree

                    I think Bush has it in her bag already, well done - best UK #1 in ages!

                    • Kate Bush heading to number one after chart rule reset
                      https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-61797012



                      The surge in affection for Kate Bush's Running Up That Hill looks likely to send her to number one this week.

                      The 80s ballad is already at number two, thanks to its use in the hit Netflix series Stranger Things.

                      Its chances of making the top have now increased, after the Official Charts exempted it from a rule that penalises older songs when they are streamed.

                      Running Up That Hill is currently the UK's most-streamed song, averaging 700,000 plays per day on Spotify.

                      In previous weeks, those streams would have counted as 3,500 "sales". This week, that figure will double to 7,000.

                      That's all because of an esoteric, but important, rule dictating the way the charts are calculated in the streaming era.

                      The Top 40 used to consist of songs you could buy in a record shop, and every sale was equal. If a record label hadn't pressed enough copies of a 7-inch or CD single, it might miss the chart altogether.

                      In some instances, record labels even stopped manufacturing a hit single in order to convince people to buy the album instead (Wet Wet Wet's Love Is All Around and the Fugees' Killing Me Softly both suffered this fate).

                      But in the streaming era, every song is available everywhere all the time. This poses the charts with a problem. If you counted streams on a like-for-like basis, classic songs like The Killers' Mr Brightside would never leave the Top 40; and a modern hit like Ed Sheeran's Bad Habits would currently be spending its 50th week in the Top 10.

                      In order to give other artists a chance and keep the charts from becoming stale, the record industry invented something called "accelerated decline".

                      It works like this. A new record earns one "sale" when it is streamed 100 times on a subscription service like Apple Music or Spotify Premium; or 600 times on an ad-funded service. But if a song is more than three years old, it needs to attract 200 premium / 1,200 ad-funded streams before a "sale" is counted.

                      Which leads to the bizarre situation where Running Up That Hill was comfortably the most-streamed song in the UK last week (with more than 2.5 million plays) but Harry Styles was able to waltz into the number one spot because his song, As It Was, enjoyed a more favourable streams-to-sales ratio.

                      This week, the playing field has been levelled.

                      The Chart Supervisory Committee, which oversees the Top 40, revoked the accelerated decline rule for Running Up That Hill over the weekend, meaning its streams are now worth the same as all the singles around it, including Harry Styles.

                      The situation is unusual, but not entirely without precedent. Under chart rules, the "standard" streaming ratios can be applied to any single if its sales increase by 25% week-on-week.

                      Technically, the committee is only supposed to enact that rule for songs released in the last three years. But it seems no-one could deny the feel-good factor of granting Kate Bush her first number one single since 1978's Wuthering Heights.

                      By Monday, the singer was already 5,000 sales ahead of Styles, a lead that's unlikely to be surpassed.

                                BTS album is no longer TOP 5 in UK!

                                The difference of their success in US and UK is so big (and even bigger in the rest of Europe).

                                      It's their first compilation and it's even a 3 CD Greatest Hits Collection with a few new songs sold with discount at £20 in UK and $20 in US (Amazon).
                                      Some older "hit" songs from early 2010's were not available in Europe and US before except on digital format.

                                      There are a lot of different colectible limited edition versions with postcards, posters, etc.

                                      Usually Greatest Hits albums do a lot better in UK compared to US on first week charts but BTS album will open at #01 in US with over 300k album sales on first week while in UK looks like it will be lucky if the album even sells over 4k during the first week (when some of their latest albums opened with over 20k on first week - mostly pure sales, not streaming). It's shockingly low.

                                      I know they aren't as big in UK but they were big enough to fill the Wembley Stadium so it's kind of shocking how low they are doing on first week of release to this album in a country where most Best Selling Albums of All Time are Greatest Hits (sure that US, Korea and Japanese sales are enough to put them at #01 on Global Albums Charts anyway).

                                      • I've read on social media that BTS physical album sales didn't count for charts because were offering Postcards or Posters.
                                        It seems pretty odd but... can someone confirm that?

                                          Kate Bush is on track for a second week at Number 1 in the UK. Running Up That Hill broke several Official Charts records when it became Kate’s first UK Number 1 single in 44 years last Friday – and it looks like it’s not going anywhere.

                                          Fast ascending track Afraid To Feel by LF SYSTEM could jump to a new peak of Number 3. Can anything stop it going further?

                                          Following on from the surprise release of new album Honestly, Nevermind Drake is eyeing three new entries on Friday, all within the Top 10; Falling Back (4), Texts Go Green (6) and Jimmy Cooks with 21 Savage (7).

                                          George Ezra recently claimed his third consecutive UK Number 1 album and Gold Rush Kid’s big single Green Green Grass could reach a new peak of Number 5 as a result.

                                          Japanese singer Joji’s big breakout single Glimpse Of Us is set to rocket up into the Top 20 for the first this week – currently at Number 19.

                                          The Official Singles Chart Top 100 is revealed on OfficialCharts.com every Friday at 5.45pm. Follow the Top 40 countdown live on BBC Radio 1’s Official Chart show with Scott Mills.

                                          • PLEASE don't let Drake take the No 1 spot come Friday! He's always inexplicably popular on streaming and might have the oomph to dethrone The Bush.

                                              Not sure why but this time around it looks like Drake streaming popularity, despite still being huge, isn't as big as his last year album was.
                                              He already dropped from Spotify number one in Gloabl and US Spotify Charts and in UK he is #04 while Kate Bush is still at #01 in both Spotify and ITunes.

                                              I really hope won't score that many TOP 10 Hits until the end of the week. Many of his UK TOP 10's are based on his album releases weeks and are not really hits as most people that didn't listen to his album never even heard about the song.

                                              • He's done a dance-oriented album. Not rap/soul based. So it's probably confounding some fans.

                                                  Drake's Honestly, Nevermind vs Foals' Life is Good for Number 1 Album: Official Albums Chart Update

                                                  Can Foals' seventh studio album Life is Good claim the top spot, or will Drake swoop in with his surprise release?
                                                  By Carl Smith

                                                  Foals lead this week’s Official Albums Chart race, with their seventh studio album Life is Yours currently tracking to debut at Number 1.

                                                  The Oxford-formed rock group - comprising Yannis Philippakis, Jack Bevan and Jimmy Smith - could score their second UK chart-topper this week, following 2019’s Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 2. Foals’ debut, Antidotes, also looks set to vault back into the Top 20 at Number 14 following its limited release on coloured vinyl. The record peaked at Number 3 on its original release in 2008. See Foals’ full Official Charts history here.

                                                  But Foals face some tough competition from Drake, who currently sits at Number 2 after just a weekend of sales. The Canadian singer and rapper surprise-released his seventh studio record digitally with just six hours’ notice; Honestly, Nevermind is right now in second place trailing by 6,000 units.

                                                  It's still all to play for at the midweek mark - could Drake climb past Foals and secure his fifth UK Number 1 album?

                                                  British rock group The Smile, comprising Radiohead members Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood alongside Sons of Kemet drummer Tom Skinner, could break into the Top 5 for the first time. A Light For Attracting Attention eyes a new peak Number 3 thanks to its physical release. The album previously debuted at Number 19 earlier this year on streaming and downloads alone.

                                                  Elsewhere in the Top 10, a 50th anniversary half speed mastered LP re-issue of David Bowie’s seminal The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars tracks for a Number 7 entry. The late singer’s fifth studio album, it originally peaked at Number 5 in 1972.

                                                  Academy Award-nominated actress and singer Jessie Buckley teams up with former Suede guitarist Bernard Butler on the pair’s first collaborative work For All Our Days that Tear the Heart. Their debut eyes a Number 9 entry this week.

                                                  London-born rock duo Nova Twins, made up of Amy Love and Georgia South, are on course to score their first-ever UK Top 20 album with second studio LP Supernova (11).

                                                  A deluxe pressing of Prince’s LP The Gold Experience, exclusively available as part of Record Store Day 2022’s June drop, is set to return to the Top 20 this week (15), having previously reached Number 5 in 1995.

                                                  Following on from her record-breaking ascent to Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart with Running Up That Hill last week, Kate Bush’s greatest hits compilation The Whole Story could rise six places to its highest peak of the year so far (18).



                                                  This week’s Top 40 could also see a new entry from Example, with his eighth studio album We May Grow Old But We Never Grow Up (23), and a return for Tears for Fears with The Tipping Point, thanks to a HMV 1921 Centenary Edition vinyl release (29).

                                                  The Beach Boys kick off their 60th anniversary celebrations with a re-issue of hits collection The Sound of Summer at Number 30 midweek. The expanded edition, also available in Spatial Audio, looks set to top the record’s original peak of 46.

                                                  Calum Scott’s second studio release Bridges could become the Beverley-born singer-songwriter's second Top 40 collection, at Number 37 midweek, and finally Stereophonics’ Best Of: Decade In The Sun could rocket back into the Top 40 at Number 39 following two nights at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium at the weekend.
