  • James Masterton's explanation on the GaGa fiasco:
    Explanation for this omission came in an uncharacteristically serious (and since deleted) tweet from the Official Charts Company themselves stating “the label has chosen to release the single in a manner which disqualifies it from the charts”.

    This disqualification is all down to our old friend, the Instant Gratification promotion – the trick of persuading people to commit to a full digital purchase of an album with the carrot of an immediate download of one of its tracks. Since the Bowie kerfuffle at the start of the year, the way iTunes has structured these promotions has changed, primarily in order to ensure that all downloads of the giveaway track are registered for inclusion on the singles chart. Thus whilst a consumer may click the “Buy £9.99” button for the album they are actually charged just 99p for a single track, the balance deducted x days later when the full album itself is released. So far so good.

    A study of the chart rules themselves (freely available for browsing on the OCC website) demonstrates that there are limits to how far you can take this promotion. Specifically it is the newly expanded albums Rule 7.1:

    image Section 5 of the above is where the Lady Gaga single falls down, indeed I believe the first high profile track ever to fall foul of this rule.

    You see Applause already forms part of an Instant Grat promotion. Although initially released as a standalone single, for the past few weeks the track has also been delivered to purchasers of the now-imminent Artpop album and indeed that still is the case. A note on the album’s page on iTunes indicates that it is the intention of the label to make no less than four different tracks available for instant download before the full release, the 99p cost of each one set against the full balance for the full album when it is released. Sadly what this does mean is that Do What U Want cannot chart, as per the explicit restrictions in Rule 7.1. Nor indeed will Venus if it still comes out as planned next week.

    The only way the single will chart at the present time is if one of three things happen:
    ?Applause is removed from the Instant Grat promotion and reverts to a standalone single download.
    ?Do What U Want is removed from the Instant Grat promotion and reverts to a standalone single download.
    ?Artpop is released in full, ending the pre-release promotion and freeing every one of its tracks to register on the singles chart if their sales merit.

    A pointed line in the explanation on the Official Charts Company website notes that the rules are “…agreed in committee with the British music industry…” In other words – Gaga’s label Interscope signed up to these rules and are fully aware of what they are doing. However much the Little Monsters may howl, only one Lady Gaga single will register on the charts this weekend.

    Why does this rule exist? Well the most straightforward reason is that two or more Instant Grat singles would effectively break the explicit link between purchase and chart. Last week if I bought Artpop I would have been consenting to a single purchase of Applause and had it register for the charts. Do so this week and my single purchase will in fact trigger the download of two different singles, regardless of whether I consent to this or not. Furthermore next week without any further action on my part I’ll be charged another 99p and have a download of Venus credited to me, regardless of whether I actually wanted to buy the single. Clearly that is chart-rigging by any other name and it would be wrong for such purchases to be ranked on the singles chart alongside other records which have been actively purchased.

    All this does leave one amusing question to be answered. The commercial radio Big Top 40 whilst using OCC data at its core, reverts to using the live iTunes chart as of Sunday evening for its climactic Top 10. This may well result in the spectacle of the commercial radio chart featuring as a prominent new entry a single which will be nowhere to be seen on the real thing for another three weeks. Thus surely sowing the seeds of further consumer confusion.
    Education for anyone aged 12 to 16 has made a mess of the world!

      Winning such a show, will give her a big media profile for the next 6 months or so. She will be featured on various TV shows giving interviews etc. This means that her career will get a boost in the short to mid-term. Also I imagine it will give her future opportunities to perform as a musical guest in futures series of Strictly, which is obviously a prime-time TV performance slot. While I don't watch the show, it is clear that it can help resurrect/boost the career of a celebrity.

        Indeed, look at Alesha Dixon. Makes me wonder if Alesha would still be successful had she not become the nicest judge we'll ever see on SCD.

          The top 1500 is back up?? They must have been behind on the bills (as someone on Haven suggested). Murder On The Dancefloor was top 170 way back when the first pre-series show was broadcast. They're not featuring her music on the show so why would it be in the chart? If she DID actually win then it might feature then. The irony is she's releasing a bland non-dance album off the back of it. :-?

          Regarding Gaga; Eminem is releasing several tracks from his upcoming album as singles, not Instant Gratis tracks. It's her record company's stupidity if they don't do the same. It's fell to 21 now anyway so it wouldn't have been THAT big just yet. It's now the second official single so it will reclimb when promo for it starts.

                  • Chris Maloney's (X Factor hopeLESS) single My Heart Belongs To You is floundering near the bottom of the top 1500. I didn't even know he released a Christmas single last year.

                    • Wow @ Eminem featuring Rihanna storming to #1 now on iTunes with The monster. Wonder it'll be as successful as Love the way you lie was in 2010. I think it might officially chart at #1 but won't be as big a selling single in the long run. Such a shame that Love the way you lie never made to #1 at the time. :(

                        • Yeah, the itunes chart is so unstable currently with so many major artists releasing so many singles. Gaga, Katy Perry, Eminem all releasing preview promotional tracks for their albums. Bieber releasing tracks every week it seems. Then reality show performances rising and falling quickly on iTunes. It's all pretty volatile in the Top 10 from hour to hour. Amongst all this mayhem, it is interesting to see Passenger doing so well in the US with his 2012 release Let Her Go being a slow-burner, in contrast to all these fast-burners.

                          • And now they've "banned" the last three Eminem singles:

                            From Digital Spy:

                            Lady Gaga's chart ineligibility in the UK has been explained by the Official Charts Company.

                            The star's latest single 'Do What U Want' was released in the UK last week, but has yet to chart after failing to meet certain criteria in regards to its release strategy.

                            The track has been made available as part of Lady Gaga's new album ARTPOP rather than a stand-alone single release, so fans will be able to do a digital 'complete my album' at a discounted rate on November 11.

                            The Official Charts Company rules stipulate that only one track per album given away as an instant grat (i.e. free with a pre-order) is eligible to chart.

                            Gaga gave away ARTPOP's lead single 'Applause' for free to fans who pre-ordered the album back in August, meaning the following promotional cuts are chart-ineligible.

                            This means new single 'Do What U Want' and promotional track 'Venus' will not be able to chart in the UK until ARTPOP's release on November 11.

                            Eminem

                            After being questioned about the UK charting of Eminem's recent songs after today's release of instant grat track 'The Monster', the Official Charts Company explained that the rapper's label distributed them as single releases.

                            "Out of the 4 pre-album singles, #TheMonster is the nominated instant grat, so #Berzerk #Rapgod & #Survival are now ineligible," they tweeted.

                            "Until today, Eminem's tracks have not been part of an instant grat album pre-order promotion."

                            Questioned over Lady Gaga's criteria, they replied: "Only one instant grat track is allowed per album pre-order, and #Applause was the chart eligible track from #ARTPOP."

                            They later confirmed: "Once #ARTPOP is released, all of the tracks from it are eligible to chart in the UK."

                            Eminem's new single 'The Monster' featuring Rihanna is out now in the UK, while Lady Gaga's 'Do What U Want' and 'Venus' are also available to download.
                            Gaga's Venus would have been #6 in mids and DWYW #10. Eminem's The Monster is #9 , One D #1.
                            So FIVE songs have been barred from the top 40. Weirdly Gaga and Eminem are on the same label yet Eminem's team have ensured all the songs charted at least for one week, Gaga's haven't.

                            • I will read the article more carefully tomorrow but one question came to my mind now...

                              Potentially, I pre-order the Artpop, my free copy of Applause is counted as a purchase and added to the total of Applause sales... what if I cancel the pre-order the following week?

                              More questions later....

                                      Just bought Little Mix's song, hope it does well although i think Storm Queen Vs Eminem featuring Rihanna is more likely to be the main battle for #1 next week.
