    @InFamous: I don't mind Post Malone's success. One's benefit is another one's disadvantage: We used to have songs that didn't end as big hits in the books, but they increased quickly, got a nice top 10 peak, then dropped quickly. Those songs are struggling to reach the higher chart areas due to songs like 'Someone You Loved' or 'Circles' now.
    Same for Dua Lipa's recent singles, though that problem is a bit self-made: If people moved on from 'Don't Start Now' quicker, 'Break My Heart' would've had its time to shine. Is it charting higher than 'Don't Start Now' anywhere at the moment?

A quick turnover used to make the UK Singles Chart one of the worldwide most popular charts and in theory, Billboard Hot 100 tries to limit the influence of old songs by excluding recurrent ones once they drop below No. 50 and aren't actively promoted. In practise, Post Malone's 'Circles' is 8 months old and still in the top 10 there - so mission not accomplished.
    But why would you not have Post Malone still in the top ten, clearly the track is still hugely popular and deserves its place.
    But thats the thing with streaming, songs are kept afloat for a lot longer than they would have been in the past with sales.

    Make sure to watch out for illegal activites that can also be reported to the chart companies.

    Why couldn't Beyonce have the same success with her last 3 solo songs that had the following chart runs: 98 - OUT, 76 - OUT and 90 - OUT ?

I guess all the people forgot about the hasbeen that is Beyonce and thought is a new rapper they need to check out. There is just no explanation for this doing good. Nicki Minji's Say So Remix is also smashing out the gate of course. EVERY remix to an established hit does well. It's only down 14 spots to #40 from its #26 peak yesterday. Same for the monstrous hit that was the Bad Guy Remix with Justine Biebs. Everyone could do this

    Ofc Megan did that. Just like Ed did that with Perfect & J Balvin did that with Mi Gente. There clearly is a pattern here.

But it did the Original Soundtrack flopped even harder than the gift That's something every fandom would do and not exclusive to the Hive. It's a clear sign people just weren't interested. Only the hardcore stans and casual fans on music forums were checking it out. That's usually the case for side projects if a song doesn't take off. The thing is if an album like this flops though it's no indication that people are over the artist that curated the album. Rappers do tons of collab albums as well for example which sell less than 100k first week and then go ahead and do triple on solo projects. Lil Wayne is a good example as well. His Tha Carter albums still sell north of 400k while his side projects flop. I know this is stan culture lingo but everyone writing Bey off because a Live album (relased wednesday) and a curated Soundtrack album to a movie which is a remake and therefore already has two Original Scores and a joint (released Sunday with over 120k) didn't debut at number one is delulu.
    Thank you.
    And of course the performance of these albums have no significance to her next solo release. I certainly never said she was over because of how those albums performed.
