    • ELIO's "LA In Two" lasts for two weeks on top, and her overall chart presence will likely stay strong now that the rest of ELIO'S INFERNO is available.

    • Amusingly, Elio came up in my Release Radar this morning, butnot for a song on your chart - Godly Behavior. I didn't realize you were charting tracks from her previous work until now, so I was very confused when I didn't see LA in Two on the Inferno album. Not sure Elio will be making it to my chart though I may give Superimpose a chance. I also like Vitamins

      Godly Behavior didn't do much for me either btw

      I think you nailed it on the tracks from Renaissance to chart, though with everyone raving about Alien Superstar, I'm surprised it's as low as it is here.

        OoOh, glad to hear ELIO's getting a little extra streaming promo with that Release Radar feature, but "Godly Behavior" definitely wouldn't be my choice for the focus track right now either Ha, yeah, I know it's a bit controversial, but I don't have any recurrency rules for my chart (as long as I've played a song enough, it'll appear, no matter how old). "Superimpose" had me so intruiged that I wound up diving into ELIO's whole back catalog (well, not counting every remix she's ever done, ha). Hopefully you'll give "Superimpose" another chance (or two). I'll leave the video here, just in case.

        Always honored to get the CT seal of approval "Alien Superstar" was an early standout, but ran out of steam/got eclipsed as the week progressed. It might move back up the ranks over the coming weeks, though...

        Thanks again, CT!

        • Even more ELIO yass! I think at this point you know her discography much better than I do, but I love it!
          Nice climb for Rina + good debut for Alien Superstar, probably my favorite from the album so far.
          Very happy to see Flor too, I'm kinda surprised to see the clip only having 35000 views tbh!
          The Sophie Ellis-Bextor song is growing on me after seeing it on various charts here on ukmix.

            You got me addicted after just one hit! The same thing happened with MUNA on Akini's chart: he was only charting one song of theirs, but I was so intrigued I wound up diving into all of their material.

            "Alien Superstar" was one of the bigget/most instant standouts when I was first listening through Renaissance (such great video potential too - well, if she ends up giving us any proper videos this era).

            Such an injustice! The song has great The 1975 vibes.

            That ridiculous "hypnotiZED" pronunciation definitely helped it stick in my brain.

            Thanks again, flopho!

              • Yes, Hypnotized is also on my chart, but my favorite song on your chart has to be the wonderful Xanadu.
                Treated me kind, sweet destiny, carried me through desperation... Prayed through the nights, carried the weight on my own and now I know I've succeeded in finding the place I conceived... I had a Vision of Love

                    Admittedly, I don't know most of Olivia's catalog (aside from the super-obvious stuff like Grease and "Physical"), but "Xanadu" (both the song and that whole film) are SUCH campy fun. A deserved "cult classic" for sure. RIP.

                    Thanks again, RayRay!

                      Although I don't know that many more Olivia songs, I do love "I honestly love you" (one of her older hits) and there is one album I truly love and even bought the CD: GAIA.

                        Ha, yeah, not the most diverse chart lately but ELIO's cracked the code to my Basic Gay™ brain to a degree that no artist has since....Charli, maybe? I guess Rina and Allie X are up there too (as far as acts from recent years go), but still, ELIO's really hooked me to a rare extent.

                        Thanks again, heppolo!

                          Nice! Are there any special reasons that particular album of hers was purchase-worthy? Do you have any recommendations/highlights from it?

                            My neighbour had this album and so I heard it. Olivia wrote the album after being inspired for having cancer. The lyrics are really strong and meaningful. My personal favorites:

                            Pegasus
                            Trust Yourself
                            No Matter What You Do

                            • Just played "Waste of Emotion" and it's not bad. I see you're charting some of the less popular Renaissance tracks. Has any song emerged as your clear favourite there yet?

                                Thanks for giving ELIO a shot You might appreciate the horniness of "Superimpose." "New And Improved" includes a "State Of Grace" name-drop, and some Taylor vibes in general (at least from the midway point onward, when the song shifts into a more acoustic mode).

                                I've definitely been drawn to RENAISSANCE's poppier moments ("Break My Soul," "Cuff It," "Summer Renaissance" - I've seen those two and "Alien Superstar" mentioned as potential second-single-candidates, any of which would be fine by me. "Cuff It" would be my top pick, though). I haven't seen a ton of love for "Plastic Off The Sofa," but it strikes me as a far less snooze-inducing version of "Rocket" "Virgo's Groove" seems to be a fan-fave, but that one feels like a more repetitive/droning downgrade from "Blow" to me.

                                Thanks again, Akini!

                                • Both Charger and Vitamins by ELIO are really growing on me lately, your impact!

                                  ELIO continues to dominate which I like, but seems that she has a competitor now. Not too familiar with Lauv, but seen some clips of his songs on Youtube, will try to check some of his stuff! Great to see The Aces having an immediate impact and debuting in the Top 10

                                    YES! Ha, the ELIO impact has gone full circle: you got me into her in the first place, now my über-enthusiasm is rubbing off on you. The ELIOMIX takeover is officially underway.

                                    Admittedly, Lauv can be a bit basic when it comes to his hits/single choices (though I still enjoy those) but sometimes he'll address his mental health and substance abuse struggles in ways that I find impactful, like on "Hey Ari" (not Grande, that's just his actual name):



                                    Huge "THANKS!" for introducing me to The Aces! Instantly hooked on that one.

                                    Thanks again, flopho!

                                      • ELIO earns the honor of shortest No. 1 ever with her mixtape opener "Inferno" (granted, it's really more of an "Intro" than a full song, but it's still 60 seconds of pop perfection). The previous record holder was Glee Cast's "It's My Life/Confessions Part II," clocking in at 1:51.

                                      • Oh, "See You Soon" briefly charted in my top 20 about three months ago, it's sweet.

                                          Definitely! Flopho's chart got me into "Talk" a few weeks ago, then last week I dove into the rest of Beatopia, and "See You Soon" was a major standout. There's something really nostalgic about the way she sings the chorus (reminds me of something, but I can't put my finger on exactly what).

                                          Thanks again, heppolo!

                                          • I was like oh, what is this Aces song - the lone male voice in the chart? And then I played it and I see even then you've frozen the men out

                                            It's a really short song, but love the pop-rock vibe of it. I still think the most interesting new song I've found from your recent charts is Superimpose tho. Looks like ELIO is going to hog #1 all for herself and not let Rina have even one crumb! I guess it's a better fate than Cuff It which will just have to gaze longingly at the top five spots

                                            What's the longest your top two has been held by the same act?

                                              Interesting to see beabadoobee debuting twice this week, maybe I should give the album another chance

                                                Ha, calling me OUT for this Misandry Top 30 I hadn't even noticed until you mentioned it, but you're quite right: the only men present this week are the (vocal-less) members of MisterWives. Also (jokes aside), the fact that "Girls Make Me Wanna Die" is coming from the perspective of a (mostly) queer band of ladies definitely adds to its appeal for me (the song would hit pretty different if sung by a bunch of dudes).

                                                Bless you for not lambasting me for fawning over a minute-long song I'm pleased to hear the horniness of "Superimpose" is sticking with you too: "cause you get my heart pumping, rising, I'm all over you, and I like it..."

                                                Rina and Bey aren't done yet, though!

                                                Thanks for asking this! It was a lot of fun to look up (even though the answer isn't very surprising) She monopolizes Paulboard just like she monopolizes CO2 emissions: Ms. Swift held down the Top 2 for five straight weeks in October and November 2014 (with "Out Of The Woods," "Shake It Off," "Style," "Blank Space," and "I Wish You Would" all swapping around during that timeframe).

                                                Thanks again, CT!

                                                  It turned out to be the Summer of ELIO but her grip's finally starting to slip now.

                                                  Yeah, I've started to move past the initial disappointment that most of Beatopia doesn't sound like "Talk" (and I've been more in the mood for calmer/soothing tunes anyway). I don't think it'll end up as one of my most-played albums of 2022, but it does suit certain moods/states of mind well.

                                                  Thanks again, flopho!

                                                  • okay so an edit to my comment: WTF how did I not notice how beautiful See You Soon is after my first listen to Beatopia???!?!
                                                    I guess I wasn't really in the mood for slower songs when I listened, that's the only explanation I can think of, it's brilliant!

                                                    Oh and I just found out 'by accident' that MisterWives and Flor did a collab (CLICK) lmao, bit random but it's cute, it's a Coldplay cover
