Where has this suddenly gone on US iTunes! It's not even on the R&B sub chart? :-?

There's only some tribute to it, which is #18 on US iTunes! It's not even sung by Estelle! :lol:

OK! I just realised what's happened!

WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON!!!

All of Estelle's new material has been taken off US iTunes! All of it! Only The 18th Day stuff is there! And people really want American Boy and are buying the tribute version!

People are angrrry! They want Estelle!!! :P

American Boy (Hot Digital Songs) : 59ème (-53)

It parried that they took American Boy off iTunes so that the album is better sold, but I see no trace of Shine in iTunes classifications! Damage, Estelle began a good ascent with his title...

Check Chart Beat Chat on Billboard! Her label made the decision to have the single as an "Album Only" purchase! Hence the drop! They wanted people to buy the album instead! That was such a dumb move!!! So dumb!!! :cry:

The album and single have been put back on iTunes now! Hopefully the damage will be undone! But I can't see the song going top 10 now! :(

Ugh how utterly ridiculous and pointless that all was... by all means try it with an established artist but this is her debut single in the U.S... it's ridiculous!

Shame it could have been a top 10 hit! :(

Sometimes record labels only exist to mess things up...

Poor Estelle, she will hardly stablish herself as an artist and her label stopped her from having good results with the single.

They tried to make money from the album and not from the single... Well, what a dumb move! Now, they're getting nothing!!

yes, you are absolutely right - "Shine" didn't make any significant improvement in the US and "American Boy" fell about 40 positions on Hot 100 and now it will hardly top its No.11 peak on Hot 100

YES!

Will this make US top 10 I wonder? (depends on airplay, I guess?)
